Question Pneumatics

so I'm still a little green in this area of paintball
I've been looking around and see all of these pneumatic parts on guns
and I'm slightly puzzled at what these would be used for.
what's the advantage to having them?
and how do they work?

I'm going to end up selling a few of my old guns that just sit around and collect dust and I'm thinking about messing around with pneumatics so this information would be helpful

If you are referring to to the pneumatic parts on the front of an autococker, the 3 pieces work in unison to cock the gun. Having them on an autococker makes it a semi instead of a pump. How they work is roughly like this. One piece is a regulator that lowers the pressure to the cocking systems operation level. The ram is just a tube with a plunger. When you put air in one end it holds the system closed and ready to fire. When air is applied to the other end it pushes the ram (and everything attached) back, which cocks the gun and opens the breach to feed another ball. The 3 way is a little gizmo that directs air the either end of the ram. Pretty rough description but I can elaborate any specific point if you like. All guns have pneumatics, cockers just wear theirs outside.

It allowed the autococker to be one of the first guns, if setup correctly (valve/hammer springs, adjustable LPR, lightened back block and bolt, etc.), to have the first anti-chop technology in paintball where it will only pinch a paintball and not chop it in half.

Talking about the pneumatic parts in the grip frame in an automag?
Simple answer?
Lighter, faster trigger, no batteries, and fun project.

I'm talking more about what Acidpaintball posted about.
im wondering what kinda of advantage it would give an Tippmann A-5 ? or is that even practical?

I would say that given the fact you have to ask, you probably are not ready for a project of that nature

Ah. He's referring to an RT kit for an A5.

Once tuned, an RT kit will increase your ROF. Pretty standard first party upgrade from Tippmann.

Although the guns function differently, modern "poppet-valved" electronic guns like the Ego, Etek, and Impulse actually have all the same pneumatic components that an old autococker does; they have a low pressure regulator feeding air to a 3/4-way valve which actuates a ram back and forth. The difference is that where on an Ego these parts are spread out and built into the body of the gun, on an autococker these parts were removable and clustered parallel to each other under the barrel.
