Hi, i have a trouble with my 16" sniper barrel in my Sierra One marker, when i fired all the paintballs going in a curve and badly. I dont know if i need to do something about my marker, like adjust pressure or something. The barrel is new.

Have it chrono'd first, 270-290 fps should be fine, and see if you get the same results.

Hi

Were you able to resolve your issue with the 16 inch barrel? Im having the exact same problem.
My balls are flying all over the place and very inconsistent.

Also have the sierre one, with the tippmann 16 inch sniper barrel, and CO2 gas

It sound like bad paint and I would check the quality of that as well.

All paint is supposed to be .67 or .68 (i actually cant remember) but each manufacturers paint is a slightly different size. Grab a couple balls that you've been playing with and drop them through the unscrewed barrel, the should sit snugly but come out of the gun with a puff of your lungs. more than a puff and the paint is too large and if it rolls freely then the paint is too small. You can buy kits to adjust the inner diameter of the barrel to help with the smaller balls.

could be the barrel is bent a tad....ive never had over or undersized rounds before....and if the presure was over 300 ft/sec they would probly just break....would be worth it to check all three

Sincerely doubtful.  In the 20+ years I've been playing, I have yet to run across a bent or crooked barrel that wasn't meant to be.

Not necessarily true.  I've chrono'd paint over 350 fps without a barrel break.  Check the paint itself.  How old is it?  Paint that has been sitting for awhile can become oblong or dimpled which can make it squirrelly after being fired.  If that isn't the case, velocity is usually a culprit.  As it has been noted above, if you can keep the velocity around 280fps you should be good to go.
