Paintball bolts and other objects that shove paintballs out of the barrel at high velocities break balls.  Instead of a bolt, high powered air should shove paintballs out of the barrel, reducing ball breaks and greatly increasing bps.  Basically it would remind me of a high powered wind tunnel inside a marker.  This would be a great new invention and incorporation for WGP'S, Angels, Timmy's, Tippmanns, Smart Parts, and any other high grade markers like Shockers and the such.  No more ball breaks might put the sqeegee industry out of buisness...  ohh well.

Make your 98 Anti-Chop(PM me) and the bolt won't even push on it as far as I can tell...

Truthfuly If I never had to use a squeegie... I still would use the swab to shine up my barrel a bit so the balls will go out smoother...

boltless guns don;t work very well. And a large burst of air is more likely to break a ball. Bolt are much more gentle since they are in contact already when they start moving.


Take a tennis racket. Set a paintball on it, and swing it. No Break.

drop a paintball and swat at it with the racket. It breaks usually. Thats what a large burst of air would do.

And thats not even really the point of a bolt. The point of a bolt is to seal the breech.
