biggest problem I would have with the new kit is that I just bought a nice SL94 in the colours I wanted and from what I have heard PE wont be offering all the colours. So now my SL drops like a rock in value because the barrel is no longer the SL barrel kit.

except that you still have the original barrel...they twist on and off unless the SL uses miracles to hold the barrel up to the marker?


it might not look as pretty out on the field but that's about it

yes I would have the original barrel but if everything goes .50 cal then its of no value.

The kit itself is awesome, not much more you could ask for in a conversion kit. it installs very quickly & easily, looks great on the gun & performs perfectly.

The fact that you can use it on any ego 07+ is sweet.

I think the debate people will have on it is not related to the kit itself but the concept of .50 cal... for a conversion kit it doesn't get much better than this.

Biggest problem I am having is finding 50 cal paint. Seems GI Milsim has slowed down in production. Action Village hasn't had any in quite some time.

He's talking about the people that hate 50 cal just because it's popular. There seriously are a lot of people who say they hate it and have absolutely no knowledge about it (not saying that there aren't people out there who can't legitimately dislike 50cal).

i find it funny that people think they will be forced to buy all this .50 cal stuff if they want to play paintball. If u dont like .50 cal then just dont buy it. If it does not work as well then the .50 cal industry will die. This whole idea has been destroyed by stupid pplz.

Are you dumb? A smaller object is going to cut through air better then a larger object. So in fact if the wind is blowing at the same speed and you shoot both guns the larger one is going to have more drag therefore being affected by the wind more. The smaller one will have less drag. Its like a SUV and a sports car in a wind tunnel pretty sure the cars gonna do better. The only argument you might could have is that the lesser weighing one is affected more but with that kind of wait difference its almost irrelevant

True, a larger ball will have greater air resistance. The resistance on a sphere is based on the the cross sectional area - if the speed and air density are equal, the difference between a .50 and .68 is ~1.85 greater for the .68 cal. However, the momentum of the ball is based on the mass. The .68 has 2.5 times the volume and therefore 2.5 time the mass of the .50 cal. Which means that the .68 is less affected by air friction.
