Question Barrel Porting

Can barrel porting actually decrease accuracy in a high or low pressure marker? I know it will decrease noise and efficiency but can it in any way decrease accuracy? Besides the fact that the more porting you have the slower your ball will come out of the barrel due to less of a push behind the ball. Please help!!!

yes lower/higher pressure guns need different porting, now lp guns need less porting because of the amount of gas it uses, u need every bit of it. higher pressure need more porting because it there is more gas coming out at a higher pressure and the port helps keep noise down, as well as helps keed most of the gas behind the ball so u dont get wierd spins on the ball.

well it won't decrease or increase accuracy unless you break paint.

Because all the holes (porting) does is allow some air to escape. Paintballs are chronographed outside the barrel, therefore if you are shooting low just turn up the velocity and vola back to orginal accuracy.

low low pressure markers its not a good idea to have too much porting because you will need more air (therefore less efficiency) to get the ball to the same speed because of the loss.

LP cockers are not really low pressure markers unless in the 150-200psi range.

I mean shockers, impulses, matrixs.

The important part for for accuracy and ball acceleration in the the solid length of the barrel. So if you want a quiet barrel of a LP gun prepare to need a longer barrel

"solid length"?
"a quiet barrel of a LP gun"?

How well would a 12" Dye Ultralite, fitting my paint perfectly, work on a 2001 shocker?

The solid length is the part of the before the holes where the ball does all the accelerating. Once the ball reaches the holes the air is expelled out the ports and no longer pushes on the ball.

And my bad, I meant to type "a quiet barrel on a LP gun"
