Paintball is a sport that is here to stay. It’s difficult to resist sneaking through the woods and letting your paintballs fly as you mark your targets. Of course, having a good, accurate gun helps. A sniper gun is even better. Build your own Tippmann sniper paintball gun with the help of this eHow.
1. Find a barrel that increases your accuracy when you are building a Tippmann sniper paintball gun. The barrel should not be more than 16 inches, and should match the size of the paintballs that you’ll be firing from the gun. Make sure the threading of the barrel you purchase matches that of your gun.
2. Choose paintballs that will work well with your barrel when you are building a Tippmann sniper paintball gun. A down and dirty test is to drop the paintball down the barrel. If the paintball sticks, it’s too small; it doesn’t stick at all and just rolls, it’s too small. The ball should go through the barrel easily–but not too easily.
3. Consider adding a regulator when you are building a Tippmann sniper paintball gun. The regulator will help regulate the CO2 your gun fires each time, making it consistent. Regulators can help to make your gun shoot more accurately.
4. Polish the contact points on your Tippmann marker when you are building a Tippmann sniper paintball gun. Because the Tippmann markers often arrive from the factory with paint residue on the rear bolt, front bolt and the receiver, it can cause friction and lessen the gun’s accuracy.
5. Add a sight when you build a Tippmann sniper paintball gun. This will help you be more accurate with your Tippmann sniper paintball gun.
6. Make your Tippmann sniper paintball gun more versatile by adding a remote kit, cammo and a stock. Since you want to be able to crawl quickly while approaching your target, the remote will make your marker lighter while the cammo helps to conceal you. The stock can make your Tippmann sniper gun more stable.
7. Lower the trigger pull when you are building a Tippmann sniper paintball gun. You can swap the spring of the trigger with that of a mechanical pencil. You have to make sure the spring is the right length so it fires consistently. You should find out whether this is illegal at your paintball range before making this modification.
