Yeah no idea exactly how much paint costs but that just means they're saving even more money by going with the smaller paint. Prices for a case of paint have remained pretty stable for the past 20 years but the bore size is quite a bit smaller. It's saving the paint companies a ton of money vs the .688 size.

Somewhat unrelated topic but I'm growing concerned at the decreasing size of paint. My tin foil hat conspiracy theorist inside me says the industry is pushing for smaller paint to slowly but surely faze out old guns.
or just encourage new players to use the stock barrel, because its not 2006 anymore and noobs aren't running cockers...

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
