Barrel back is a typo. I will check on operating pressure.

A typo on your part or others'?

My barrel back did not have a size on it, so I just assumed. I'm assuming the Planet Eclipse documentation is correct (0.693").

I was between 260-275psi with the stock barrel shooting around 280-290fps depending on the paint. At about 290psi I was chronoing around 310-315fps. Things like humidity, batch size differences, so on and so on will vary your results. Those numbers were how I faired out.

seems kinda high for a spool-type gun. that should mean better efficiency though. from the video it seems quiet.

This is a brand new gun. Why couldn't they just release it with a .689 barrel?

It's not a spool though. It's a pressure controlled poppet, kind of similar to a mini/axe.
