Every(or almost every*) paintball gun out there is pneumatic. That basically means powered by a gas(C02)


*I have to remember this is MCB, I know someone is gonna pop up with a non-pneumatic PB gun.

The C3 used EXPANDING gasses from combustionof propane gas. The exhaust is CO2... just formed in a different way. I quess that's still "pnuematic" though as it is the "exhastion of air/CO2." Oh well... I tried.

Netsurferdude2 is right, because, you can't get the paint to splat!

The paintballs hurt just as much as the bbs and they gum up AEGs pretty bad.
