Tippmann U.S Army Alpha Tactical Mod Kit

Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
Does this only happen when you’re low on air? Also, make sure you’re using a good paintball oil for lubrication and make sure the marker is clean. It’s possible for an o-ring to leak, or once it gets cold to leak, so make sure you use the proper o-ring for the proper location (lots of them look alike so keep them labeled and bagged separately). Good luck!

How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

The muzzle velocity of paintball markers is approximately 90 m/s (300 ft/s); most paintball fields restrict speed to 280–300 ft/s, and small indoor fields may further restrict it down to 250 ft/s.
In cold weather the pressure can get so low that many paintball markers won`t cycle properly. Liquid CO2 is hard on the seals of your marker and can cause damage if it works it way into the solenoids of many electropneumatic markers.
Compressed air is an increasingly popular choice for casual paintball players and match play, and offers multiple advantages over carbon dioxide (CO2). As a power source, compressed air tanks are reliable solutions players can depend on during high-speed play any time of the year.
The answer is individual to the player, but in most cases 500 rounds should last 2.5 to 4 hours.
» How long does 100 paintballs last? Anywhere from 10 minutes to 3 hours…. Some players are trigger happy and blast through their paintballs and other players are conservative and make every shot count. On average approx 95% of players buy extra paintballs.
A bullet is fired at a typical muzzle velocity of around 2,700 ft. per second, or around 3,000 kilometres per hour. Once the gases stop pushing it, it begins to slow down due to two forces – the resistance of the air that it`s pushing through, and the downward suck of gravity.
The pain will range from `similar to being snapped by an elastic band` to `getting stung by a bee`, and the worst you`ll get is a small bruise or welt, nothing too dramatic so long as you stick to the rules.
Dry Firing PCP and CO2 Air Rifles

Dry firing PCP or CO2 air rifles will usually be completely safe, as there isn`t a piston to worry about. You`re simply releasing a short spurt of air/CO2 to force the pellet up the barrel.

HOW LONG DOES THE CO2 CARTRIDGE LAST? ​Once penetrated on the first trigger pull, the CO2 cartridge will last 24 hours or 21 shots.
Compressed air`s main advantage is consistency. The more consistent pressure results in much more consistent performance. Compressed air is marginally affected by temperature, unlike CO2, making it great for cold weather and electronic guns.
An air compressor can help refill your CO2 tank, helping save you time and money. Compressed air is also more convenient, allowing you to use your air supply without worrying about running out. Using air compressors to fill CO2 tanks is underutilized but can revolutionize your business.
Paintballs generally range from $15 – $30 per 500-round bag and $50-75 per 2,000-round case.
Conclusion. An average player will get away with 400 to 500 for a day while more forceful players should allow up to 800 paintballs.
You can play paintball all by yourself or join in a group of a thousand to enjoy the sport.
This compact lightweight HPA tank is Globally Certified, which means it`s approved for use in the USA, Canada and Europe. Many paintball and airsoft players use this with a remote line setup. Expect to get 450 to 850 shots per fill with your paintball marker or 1900 shots with your Tippmann M4 Carbine Airsoft Gun.
The standard . 50 BMG military load fires a full metal jacket (FMJ) bullet weighing 647 grain (gr) and travels at a velocity just more than 3,000 feet per second (fps) when fired from the M2 heavy machine gun, with a barrell length of 45 inches.
Speed of light—faster than a speeding bullet.
Paintballing is a great activity to get the blood pumping and is suitable for ages 8+, as well as being the perfect place for birthday parties or weekend outings.
Paintball bruises and welts can be painful, but your skin will eventually heal. The length of time it takes for a welt or bruise to heal varies depending on the extent of trauma.
Low impact paintballs are (. 50 inches in diameter) smaller, lighter and more fragile than the traditional (. 68 caliber) paintball. These specific paintballs deliver less sting upon impact making the experience more fun!
There are areas on the body that hurt worse when hit such as, the neck, fingers, back of the head, inside of your leg and the groin. These areas can be especially painful. This is why we stress wearing the right clothes and accessories for paintball.
“Around 350 feet per second is a figure you want to keep in mind,” says Beeman. “At 300 to 400 fps, that`s where penetration occurs in a human skin. Below 350 fps, it is generally considered capable of only limited harm. Above 350 is considered very harmful or lethal.
I`ve spoken to folks at Umarex and at Gletcher about this very thing and both companies recommend NOT leaving non-threaded, 12 gram Co2 cartridges in your gun for more than a day (actually Umarex suggested less!).
Consistency is key when it comes to airguns and how you hold and shoot them. Most shooters find a limit of around 20-30 yards for hunting consistently, however, some accurately hunt beyond 50 yards with “springers”. It all comes down to how well you and your rifle work together.

My alpha black paintball gun is shooting 1 to 5 then stopping.
ANSWER : Sounds like it needs to be oiled. A couple of drops in the small hole where your bottle screws on.
Replace bottle and dry fire to see if you got it. Cleaning is just as important. Internals need to be cleaned
and lubed often. I know it’s late but hope it helps someone.

I have a tippmann custom pro with a cyclone feeder. I recently got the SAW stock to put on it and encountered some problems many times after I reassembled the gun. I took it apart at least 5 times before I thought it was fixed but now ive encountered another problem. I believe it has to do with the cyclone feeder not responding or something is out of line in the gun. When I picked up the gun to shoot, no paint came out so I took off the CO2 and the barrel and saw that the paintball was 1/3 inside the gun. I also have a problem when im shooting it sometimes does really fast burst. Thank you
ANSWER : Hi there. Tippmann markers are super tough to make sure that they are put back together properly. The stupid clamshell design plus all the little, under engineered parts make it difficult to get it back together properly, especially after installing a stock. I was in the paintball industry for 10 years but have been out of it for a little bit, but i was one of the founding members of Uprising Nation and was a gunsmith/ salesman for PaintballOnline.com / Xtremes. Now with that said…I even had trouble with the tippmann 98’s…and I can rebuild an autococker with my eyes closed but can sometimes be stumped by the tippy’s bad design. It is really tough to diagnose an issue on these guns without looking at it. You may have the ball detent backwards,l missing a pin, sometimes the after market stocks on those are a little too large on the outside diameter preventing the internals from properly seating. The cycloce system may be off due to the valves not meing properly aligned or the connecting rod not being in all the way. Many times though it is incorrect installation of the detent or the deternt gets damages. That little orange peice of **** flap is a mance. I would start there.

It may seem like i am bashing your gun. Im not… Once they are put together properly they work great. Just DONT TAKE THEM APART. lol. If you buy the parts at a local gun shop they will install them for free.

lol I have 6 guns for sale 🙂

Have a good day

I bought a new mossberg 590 a1 shot gun a month ago, I love the gun but its having a couple of problems, the first problem is that when shooting every once in a while i get sprayed in the face with exuast from shooting through the safety very scary! any ideas whats causing this? how to fix it? second is that some times the fireing pin sticks and the gun will not discharge a round? the third problem is that i have had feeding issues with gun where it will not realice a gound from the tube, ive taken a tip of a knife to the stuck round in the tube and it prys out with little effort, these problems dont happen every time i go shooting, just every once in a while, but they a happening more and more, im conserned cause the gun is brand new, and i wanna be safe while shooting, can you guys help me? any ideas/solutions? please help!!!!!!!
ANSWER : Personally, with that many problems, I’d call Mossberg and get a return authorization. None of these things should be happening, especially with a new gun.

Paintball gun problem
ANSWER : First off, make sure it’s clean, and lubed with a quality oil made for paintball.If you’re sure the o-rings are good (as in relatively new) it’s pretty hard to tell just from looking as it doesn’t take a lot of damage to leak air.Try a different tank, just to be sure. Make sure it’s full.**** it. If that stops it there’s a clue. If it’s had some use it’s possible to have a bad/weak spring and the valve isn’t closing entirely. Make sure your velocity is less then 300fps. Check out your local airsmith or field and they should be able to get you squared away if none of that helps.Good luck!

What is the maximum velocity for the US army alpha
ANSWER : 280 or 300 depending on league and field, but adjust the velocity with an allen wrench on the back of the gun usually right above the handle
