The Splatmatic Pistol Splat is a spring-powered paintball gun that uses a compressed spring to create a pocket of air to fire paintballs. Because of this design, the charging handle must be operated to fire each shot. It operates without the need for batteries or a CO2 cartridge, making it easy and inexpensive to use. The Splatmatic Pistol Splat uses a clear tube-style magazine instead of the traditional hopper seen in most paintball guns. This makes it easy for the user to see how many paintballs are left in the tube.
1. Fill the magazine tube with paintballs. The tube is “single-stack,” which means that the tube is only big enough to allow one single column of paintballs to fit in the tube.
2. Insert the magazine tube into the port on the top of the paintball gun. The magazine tube is located on the top of the barrel.
3. Take hold of the charging handle on the top rear of the pistol and pull it upward. This will bring the internal spring mechanism back and load the first paintball into the chamber.
4. Aim the pistol at your target and squeeze the trigger.
