Was wondering if there were any paintball guns that didn't have a bolt. The goblin maybe?

Are there any detents? What prevents the ball from rolling out or do you have to under bore and stuff

So does that marker just have all the air/co2 built up and releases it at once pushing the ball out?

thats how every gun works ...
The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

Right, but doesn't the bolt come in contact with the ball in a normal marker?

Although it did not function as one, SMGs technically did have a part called a bolt:

So the only difference with the ones that don't have a bolt is that there is no mechanical contact when the ball is shot?? Would this be a good thing or bad thing overall?

there must we a way to isolate the one ball from the stack, a trap door vs a bolt, there is still a mechanical interaction.
