Overboring Will it break more paint?
Posted 22 December 2008 - 05:38 PM
Im looking at buying a CP barrel for my ion, with a .696 back, because i'm having some awful problems with barrel breaks, and in my humble, non informed opinion, i thought it would break less paint. However, i've been advised by a very experienced player that it will break more paint, because the balls will bounce around in the barrel.
True or false?
Will it break paint more or less? (and theoretical views are welcome as well as proved ones)

our barrel break test also showed that the .693 barrel broke the most paint. we certainly have our doubts whether that is simply statistical (as most of believe), or actually a real effect.
the first thing i would look at though in terms of barrel breaks is the paint quality myself.
so really, there just isn't enough evidence showing that an overbore breaks more paint. but we have seen it happen and that idea brought up by interesting test results.

So I don't think overboring will break more paint necessarily. There's other factors. And I think if you really overbored you could get balls bouncing around, but to be honest in most cases there isn't going to be enough room in there for balls to be bouncing back and forth in the barrel. IMO

but i think its mainly paint quality thats the main factor in breaks., if everything is clean and in good shape.
If you'r too busy getting even, you will never get ahead.

it was actually the .695 freak back.

yeah, maybe bigger. We'll slap CockerPunk's micrometer on there - I should know that.

i had a pt extreme pistol who was bored to an extreme .710+ and got massive breakage, so i wouldent rule out overboring for more breaks.
