Power, try to keep your questions in one thread if you can help it. I merged the threads since those questions are all related.

Thanks.

ok I always wondered this but how does a barrel use more air if it doesn't control the air output or input and is the thing in the chain and also a mostly non moving non adjustable part

Because of friction, the ball traveling through the barrel is slowing down the whole time it is in the barrel due to friction. This requires you to increase the velocity, by increasing the amount of air behind the ball. therefore the longer the barrel, the more friction there is, the more air you will need to use to have a velocity of 280-300 fps.

HOWEVER, it's been my experience that the difference in efficiency is NOT that great when shooting a 16" barrel as opposed to a 14" barrel. 2 INCHES doesn't really matter that much. The ball really only touches the back of the barrel for about 5 or so inches - the rest just directs the ball in the proper direction. Sure, maybe you'll lose 20 shots or so, but big deal? Make sure you fill up before each game and if you have to rely on those last 20 shots to win a game, shame on you! Go practice some more!

I personally prefer 12-14 inch barrels. However, many people prefer 16" barrels to help push around bunkers and through brush and have that much more cover. Now, when you talk 18"-21" - NOW you're talking a problem.

By the way, the BARREL does NOT give you more distance. It's simple physics that any gun set to 300FPS is going to shoot a given distance. Friction does play a part, and the longer a ball has to travel through a barrel, the slower it will go in the end - however a distance of 2 inches is NOT going to add a foot, or take away a foot.

12, 14, 16 - pick a size that looks best on your gun and use it!

This holds true, the difference between 10-12-14-16 is not noticeable enough to really worry about. However barrels of greater length tend to have a longer ported section of the barrel to make it aesthetically pleasing. This allows the air to escape out of the barrel, but if this section is too long, too much air escapes while the ball is still in the "friction zone", so if the ball is still undergoing heavy friction and the air that propels it is escaping, you are using a lot more are just to get the ball out of the barrel. I am tired, I hope that this is making sense to you.
