Sweep bolt and Apex barrel for more range

Can the sweep bolt be used in tandem with a Apex barrel to increase range further and maintain a flatter trajectory?

No, the apex works by causing friction points/pressure at the user desired direction on the paintball as it exits the barrel causing spin.

The apex negates any guns natural shooting consistency and characteristics.

While the apex is fun to play around with, If accuracy is important to you stay with the calm consistent flow and air-path of the sweep!

Sweep is a system, it's a bolt and a valve together for smooth airflow.

The sweep bolt seems like a really nice system after seeing Jack's videos demonstrating its effectiveness against a stock barrel. It certainly seems like an advantage over all other guns in tourneys. The Alien sealed bolt rammer is also neat.

I hope all other companies like PE, Empire, etc would offer that bolt option as well.

This gun seems amazing. How come dealesr in the world is not selling it?

Please dont let the lack of Alien commericals, dvds, videos shot with $10k cameras, trade booths with diamond and gold covered guns, british accents or jack hammer LPR pressures fool you...

Alien is about less hype and more thoughtful design. Alien is about calling the shop and speaking with the owner/designer directly.

Just shoot one... it wont matter if dealers have them or not! Just order off alienpb.com.

Well I hope they don"t and I spent thousands of dollars for the patent so they can't. Again, as was stated, you need the valve and the bolt and... - for it to work. Plus bad paint is still bad paint.

And I do have dealers - just looking for more - we give our dealers good margins - so that's not why they aren't stocking them.

If you license it out, it could be a good thing for the sport as a whole.

If they licensed it they would be admitting that it works. Until a much bigger portion of players know that it works and want it in the gun they shoot, it only costs them money to include it. They don't want to make the best gun they can. They want to make the most money possible.
If you want the Sweep System - get an Alien. Simple as that.
