alley cat 2- black with bottomline and generic expansion chamber
alley cat DX(or LT, depending on where you bought it) black/green splash with double trigger, expanson chamber, 45 grip, bottomline
16 inch armson barrel is shared between them
Anything big bore and fairly round. once i ran out of ammo and had to shoot muskedines(a type of wild grape). they were fairly accurate
need a LONG squeegie to clean it.
balls curve after 120 yards or so
I have the 16 inch varant of the armson pro for the alley cat. the rifled bore really does make a difference. crappy paint is kept on course and egg shaped or cube shaped paint flies in a spiral pattern. range is increased a lot. a ball will easily go over 100 yards at 224 fps if the gun is pointed up 10 degrees. it sails leasurely through the air, spinning. After about 150 yards at 285 fps the paint will tend to abruptly veer off course. if you intend to shoot at targets more than 120 yards away then you should get bullet shaped paintballs anyway.
This barrel coms in 1 color. black. no fancy chrome plate or naked ladies panted on the side of the barrel. it doesnt matter. paint should go through a barrel, not on it.
Go get one in 14 or 16 inch. the 10 inch or shorter variant is barely long enough to make the rifling worth the effort.
"If you intend to shoot at targets more than 120 yards away then you should get bullet shaped paintballs anyway."
I guess that that would be more of a paint-bullet then a paint-ball then..... How on earth would you get a bullet shaped paintball to travel from the hopper and down the feed neck in to the breech? You'd have to load them one at a time, bore-load style with a ram rod (muskets anyone?) or breech-load them by removing the barrel after each shot. Not really practical.
uhhhhhhh how may i ask are you getting that range in the first place? 120 yards? flatlines hit 100, and even at that distance they curve from winds. ahieving 120 yards is good enough, who cares if they curve past that distance? unless its a typo and you meant feet...
