well, tolerance isn't the same as fits... tight tolerances mean the deviation of dimensions is tighter, tight fits is obvious. I mentioned the Viking as AKA was known for highly accurate tolerances at their peak. However, maintaining a lot of high tolerances isn't necessary for a paintball marker really, I've seen superb performance achieved with extremely simple designs, throughout which there were not many tight tolerances... this is called good engineering, and is a very practical design perspective for sporting equipment which gets used outdoors by untrained operators
