Default Most distance

IM looking to get more range out of my spyder, Its an MR1 with a 14" JandJ and a 32 degrees spring kit.

Is there another barrel I can run to get more range?

14'' is best for range, just aim the gun up.

actually ... barrel size doesn't really determine the range .. it's more of paint to bore match ... umm .. QRFleader .. you should be fine the way you are .. just look at paint size faq and barrel size faq

Apex will give you some extra distance with the flatline effect.

Yeah, at the cost of absolutely no accuracey

Nothing will increase your distance properly aside from increasing your FPS velocity.

Now a question for you Recon......did you max the affect completely out or??? I have heard from several people to turn it to half of maximum effect. Also I've heard using the barrels with backspin will always lose a little bit of accuracy!

u say barrel has nothing to do with distance. A paint marker is still a gun, langer barrel = longer range, Other things contribute as well. when I went to the 14"jandj from the stock my range was equil to my buddies angel. I still want more range!!!! I may try the 18" jandj .

No you wont' get anymore range from a longer barrel. I marker shooting the same fps with a shorter barrel will go the same distance. My 11" barrel on my phantom will shoot the same distance as your 14" barrel if they are shooting the same fps!

Actually if you increase your barrel length you might lose distance. Paintball markers and paintballs are not the same as a gun and bullet. Longer barrel means more contact with the ball, which means less velocity as it comes out of the barrel, so less distance. You also have to take in account that paintball barrels are ported, gun barrels aren't. So when the propellant that pushes the projectile in paintball guns (which is air) is allowed to escape, where as in a gun it does not. I hope that helps explain it and not confuse you more.

If you want more distance, get closer. Best way I have found.
