I think the consensus is that a shorter rifled barrel is better...


I think this gun definitely has a market. I can't wait to try one!

Cool, I guess, but all we really need is for Empire to finally release the FS magazine for the Trracer.

Why would you need a rifled barrel to shoot rifled rounds?

Spools them up faster. They lose a bit of accuracy while they spin up outside the barrel.

Has it not been proven that rifled paintball barrels cannot impart spin?

On paintballs.

Actually, I don't know of any data that indicates whether rifling does or doesn't impart spin on a paintball... Just that it doesn't improve accuracy with a paintball.

When's the last time you've played a field where a "sniper rifle" was useful?
