I was sucked in by that damn flatline...  I saw an add on Ebay ( a really good bye if you ask me ) which my signiture is the main picture of everything that came with my package. it came to a grand total of $292.83 for the gun, flatline, a truflight barrel, 2 9oz CO2 tanks, a 12oz tank, R/T, and double trigger kit. I was so happy the flatline sucks though... and the truflight is 21" long so it sucks two, but is better than the damn flatline... I need some help on a new barrel kit and i'm really tired of wasting money on a bunch of useless things...


Thats my package.
Thank you EBAY

ya that 21 inch barrel is killing your distance, due to drag.

ebay isnt the most reliable, my friend bought an autococker off ebay it worked for like 15 minutes and hasnt worked since even after he got $500 worth of upgrades done to it.

Yeah,  what are the problems you're having with the flatline?
Cause if you don't have it set in right then  it would cause big problems:
EXTREME  inaccuracy  and lots of ball breakage.

And do you have the adapter piece  all the way in?
With mine I have to unscrew the 2 front screws and THEN put in the adapter piece.  Once that's in ALL THE WAY (you have to turn it pretty hard)  then it should be fine.  I've seen alot of people who only screw in the adapter halfway.  The little notch  at the end of the barrel should line up with the front sight.  If it's even just a little bit off then you'll have paint curving way  to one side. 


21"  is just for show.  Like everyone else says  lol
In a world where everyone has gone mad, only the lunatic is truly sane.

You have all been alot of help, but I will let you know that I have turned the velocity to every volume, I have twisted, pulled, and lossened that flatline to hell and still the balls have a mind of their own. No wind/some wind does not matter When I shoot they go straight then make mad curves to no where and the thing is soooo inaccurate. I mean what point is farther distance if it would not hit a elephant at 250ft away...


Thats my package.

Take a look at the inside of the Flatline. Tell use what it looks like, don't be afraid to use lots of detail. The interior surface may need refinishing.

^^Yup. This happens every so often to the Flatty. If this is your problem, then I believe Tippmann will re-finish it for you free.

What kind of paint are you using? How old is it? Use a smaller-bone, high quality paint and you should do fine

I recommend either Blaze or Evil, depending on your budget

also, you need to make sure you paint is ok. cheap paint will result in poor results. you want the pballs to roll through, unlike more barrels where you want it to get stuck.

make sure the barrel is clean too. i will suggest to take the shroud off and litterially boil the barrel for 5-10 minutes, this will ensure that its perfectly clean. let it dry, you can aid this with clean paper towel's

once its clean, and you have the proper paint bore size, then you should try to make sure the flatline is tuned somewhere from 255-275 fps give or take. also the flatline is a consistancy hog. the more consistant your maker is, the better the flatline will be.

hope you get it working. its a great barrel and does exactly what it claims it can for alot of people who can follow those guidlines.

The flatline is not the problem. Unless you got it used.

1) velocity

2) cheap paint

3) co2 stinks!!!!! Get a compressed air tank. Co2 makes the gun very  inaccurate.

Co2 does not make the gun inaccurate!! It effects the velocity,not the accuracy. Co2 is not going to make your balls curve, lol, anyway, i say you go and buy a nice barrel kit.

First thing's first. Get compressed air and a good regulator. Then, when you have enough money, buy the Freak Kit with the stainless inserts.

wow. Just wow. So a used flatline is automatically the problem? Don't think so. Only if it's been heavily used, it might need to be re-finished

And CO2 isn't unaccurate. It will affect the velocity, but won't affect accuracy. With my anti-siphoned CO2 tank and Palmers stabalizer, I'm shooting darts.

And although  HPA tank and regulator and freak are nice, they aren't needed nearly as much as a decent performing barrel.

Buy either a J&J barrel, or a Lapco Bigshot. Those are the 2 most recommended barrels on the forum, mostly becuase they provide good performance at relativly cheap prices.

Wrong. Consistantcy helps accuracy. If you're shooting 275 every shot, its going to be more accurate then if you're shooting 275, 240, 300.

With the palmers and co2 it will be more like 285 +/- 5.  so many people waste money switching to nitro thinking they will shoot so much more accurately.  A good barrel should be first on your upgrade list.....if you want to waste money on something that won't make much of a difference go with nitro.
