hey you wont see me, you seem to know a lot. So barrels dont chop balls right? Well i have a richochet apache laoder and a response trigger. Does the laoder speed have anything to do with chopping balls or anything? All the reviews are saying things about "you have to find the correct balls size or the bt-16 will chop balls." Are they right or does their gun suck?

Barrels dont chop balls. Chopping balls is when the bolt pinches a ball and causes it to pop because it wasn't fully loaded in the breach before being fired.

Barrels can however break balls when the barrel is too small for the ball or when the ball has defects.

what i heard is when testing paintballs trying rolling a ball through your barrel. With the correct size it shouldnt roll through but you should be able to blow it through. And also, is the ricochet apache loader good?

What you heard is corect. To get the proper sized ball you should be able to gently blow it through the barrel.


I'm currently considering buying the Apache for my Ion. It seems to be a great Hopper.

Yes, R/T's can go fully auto. But it takes tuniing.

On a 98C you could see speeds of up to 24 cycles per second(i've seen 21bps) if you have it tuned right.

Hopefully.

If it isn't tuned right, then the RT wont work or will work poorly. It wont hurt the gun to have a poorly tuned RT.

Remotes can help your amount of shots a little bit; they serve mostly to get the tank out of the way and allow room for the liquid c02 to expand into a gas. Gas running through the gun is much better than liquid, I must say.

If its not tuned, it wont go fully auto. Its all about how you pull the trigger. When tuned, you can pull the trigger about halfway back and it will go fully auto. If its not tuned it just wont do it.

Remotes can help by acting as an expansion chamber and giving the liquid c02 more room to expand. It will help your consistancy.

Fron a 9 oz you can expect around 400-500 shots with a 98C.

12 oz around 650-750

No the c02 will not "wear out"
