Why are pro-lite/ pro-carbines so accurate?

Why are pro-lite/ pro-carbines so accurate? Barrel, construction?

I just used my pro-lite on the field yesterday and was surprised how accurate it was. Much better than the 98's.

It actually hit where I aimed.

The gun has very good ergonomics and the ability to aim down the barrel doesn't hurt.

They no more or less accurate really than any other marker. But I do also feel that they are comfy shooting platforms and feel very accustom to them. Thus this allows me to get on target quick and fire making it seam like a very accurate setup.

milled receiver instead of a clamshell(which has some light tolerances), which can give much better threads for the barrel, thus giving a better breech area for the ball to travel through.

You think they're accurate with the stock barrel?!

Ha!

Try a 14 inch barrel from anything but tippmann and you'll be hitting quarters at 50 feet.

My question is, Why are they selling so cheap? I love them and have been picking them up for $20 on flea bay.

Ergonomics:
Pistol grip well angled - like a Thompson smg. I notice a lot of the pumps also use this angled grip design. I found this marker quite accurate even without a stock.
