This falls somewhere in the realm between lies, magical optimism, and confirmation bias.  Physics will not let the bolt deliver 


But I'm sure the Deception will end up being a loved stacked-tube poppet

The physics are the same as hitting a pool shot below the center of the ball. 

As I said - shoot the gun, it's just that simple, shoot the gun

As far as loved stacked tube - thank you - add that this one is special. It's  not the 10 iteration of a Matrix or even leverage, delay and extension by a lever. It's decidedly more.

Wow, a mod from pbnation said it so it must be true! I don't care how badly you want this sweep bolt to work, it won't. Your gun cannot defy the laws of physics.

Maybe you should get one and shoot it first - First strike rounds work - they too add spin, just  more. Shoot one, then your opinion matters.

I set up quite tight perimeters, but get a box of paint and put it on a table. Then hold the barrel flat on the box - do it for other guns. Have someone down field to see where they land. 

It add a little distance and makes for a flatter narrower shot. Slight oval and bit flatter shot and noticeable distance. Fight has been because others claimed that I said it was a huge improvement - it's worth adding the feature in the gun - not a feature that costs that much.

I don't understand why anyone wouldn't want it. No one has ever said that the Sweep takes away from the shot - and most everyone who has shot the gun says as good as or better than any gun they have owned. Yet those that have never shot the gun still want to come on and hate on it. 

Now a couple of vids show a new double stacked as quiet and as calm as any gun - including any spool - this becomes a reason to again post hate. Useless. .

Guns are at anodizer being polished. I'll get one to Mike first thing so TechPB can review. Also promised one to Hustle for review. You will start to see players commenting on their guns in November

Just sent the gun out to ProMod (PBNation)

He posted this on his Facebook page



It's absolutely unreal how little barrel rise there is with the HPR/LPR configuration. I'm looking at several other markers in my collection and thinking "I used to think THAT was smooth?!" The barrel-to-body angle feels extremely intuitive to point and snapshoot with, unlike markers with more angled barrels, relative to the bolt assembly and grip angle. Drivetrain and valve were super-simple to maintain and held lube in place quite well considering how much air is rushing over that main seal. 

Additionally....I can't quite describe WHY it works, (I understand the physics concept behind it) but I'm seeing paintballs carry further when I had the rubber insert on the front of the bolt...the Sweep system they call it. Take two markers, side by side, and make the barrels parallel to each other. Chrono as close as possible. The paintballs fired from the marker equipped with the sweep bolt hit the ground farther downrange every time.

Paint-to-bore sizing with the sweep bolt means I can chrono lower, and still achieve the same range. I think the best way to describe it is that it has a similar effect as a hopup unit on an airsoft marker. 

All in all, I'm left speechless at how well the marker performs, even as a prototype platform. You better believe I'll have one coming in.
