See, this is what i used to think, before i actually did it and was able to talk from knowledge and not ignorance, like you are right now.
I first took one of my spare firing cans, and drilled 2 extra holes i believe (possibly 3, this was a while ago) and i used nothign more than a dremel, about as least precise as you can get. The following was my process.
I took an old lucky firing can i had and tested out the efficiency and the consistency, down to the last paintball (don't remember exactly how many it was anymore). I made sure the tank that i was using was 100% full, i did a slow fill, then let it sit for a half hour, did another slow fill to top it off, let it sit, and yet another and let it sit (this last one barely let me put any air in it but i let it sit any way).
I proceeded to shoot it over a chrono to test the consistency and then played with it until it could no longer fire.
I then took the gun apart, lubed it up (as i had done before the lucky can was inside of it) and put in my modded firing can. I did the same filling methods and tested it over a chrono and then played with it.
I noticed that they were almost exactly the same, i think the amount of paint they were off was about 30-40 paintballs, and they were the exact same consistency.
