Have you guys done an accuracy test from gun to gun?

IE separated out the factor that the gun's mechanism itself imparts on accuracy, so if you used the same paint, same barrel and perhaps the same HPR and shot indoors you'd see the effects of going from platform to platform eliminating the whole "This gun shoots flatter" or "This gun has drop off" shens?

I would probably say you would have to use same barrel. Reballs and not just regular paint because paint are not always consistent in shape unless your paying for like 100 dollar paintballs erhm and even those my have little inconsistencies. I would probably use the same regulator's. Dont know how this would work on guns with lpr and etc. But this is just my opinion

Can't really see how gun to gun would affect it at all, as long as you are setting the fps to the same chrono gun to gun and using the same barrel those are the two main variables that would affect accuracy?

You underestimate the power of the bolt young padawan.

I have no idea. I just have a feeling that the way different bolts distribute the air onto the ball might affect accuracy.

Same barrel + same velocity + same paint (hald selected beforehand) = same results

How the marker operates would ONLY slightly affect changes in barrel elevation and aim. More to do with the shooter's hand than anything. Heavier marker, barrel, regulator and tank set-ups mean quicker fatigue. Heavy bolt shaking the hand means barrel jerks.

Marker selection is about on-the-field reliability, ease of maintainance, and budget more than anything.

The only things that determine accuracy are:

the velocity of the ball right after it exits the barrel (direction, speed)

the spin on the ball right after it exits the barrel

the shape of the ball

 

It has been shown in the lab that huge amounts of spin (like on the Apex and Flatline barrel), are required in order for it to become a significant factor. Dirt and debris can affect the spin as well as the shape (a ball with some paint on the outside of the shell has its weight off balance). Alien's sweep bolt does not provide enough spin to matter. There's really absolutely nothing you can do to improve accuracy once you have a clean setup shooting good paint at consistent velocity.

Well, nothing pertaining to your gear...

Sweep bolt come on guys! A quality bolt from a quality company and a nice owner to boot. Shit do I have that backwards?

hasn't there been testing from punkworks showing the sweep bolt dosn't have enough of an effect to make a differance on paint trajectory?  Just looking at the apex and flatline it takes pretty drastic measures to be able to make enough spin on the ball to be able to have an effect. Now I'm sure the bolt can play a little bit of a factor with things like being gentle on the ball as to not deform it or provide a nice smooth air path and things like that

This.

 

There are two different sets of accuracy that matter in paintball.

 

First is the equipment.  We've never really found anything outside of paint quality and reasonable consistency to matter to the accuracy of a bench clamped gun.  That's just the base line.

 

The second is the interaction between the gun and the player - which is far and away more important.  How comfortable the gun is, how easy it is to point and how well it operates in your hand is massively important to the effectiveness of your gun.  This leads people to making unrealistic but understandable claims about certain guns.  I know that I shoot some of my guns better than others - however, this doesn't mean that those guns are intrinsically more accurate - it's just that I'm better at shooting some of them.
