Well... dropped my barrel today and theres a very very very slight bend in the aluminum end where you screw it into the gun, like a half milimeter fold.

Paintballs fit through, but i ran out of air and did it when i got home. Think its time for a new barrel?

What I am afraid of is that maybe the tiny ledge might just clip the side of the paintball rip a gash in it.... than i have broken balls in my gun chamber or paintballs flying out with a paint trail.

So... New Barrel?

If its a stock barrel then you might want to look into investing on a new barrel anyway :D.

I think when you fire if the ledge doesn't rip the paintball apart, it will put massive spin on it. sooooo, new barrel. But try the barrel just in case.
