Why Compressed Air Paintball Is the Choice of Paintball Players
Special Article on Compressed Air Paintball (Or High Pressure Air Paintball):
Nitrogen, or High Pressure Air (HPA), is a better alternative for paintball guns
than carbon dioxide (CO2) because CO2 can be extremely erratic. But carbon dioxide,
a is less expensive than high-pressure air and because of this, weekend warriors
and people not blessed with tons of cash have trouble affording the more expensive,
The reason carbon dioxide can be erratic is because it is usually used in a
liquid state, then it's warmed up to the gas. When it's changing from a cold
liquid state, problems can occur. For example, if you're in a sustained rapidfire
mode. The liquid CO2 may enter your gun, because it to freeze. But what's even
more problematic is that it may damage the internal components of your paintball
gun... particularly the O-ings. Also, carbon dioxide expands rapidly as it warms
the and if you don't have a regulator it can cause inconsistencies with accuracy,
trajectory, and speed.
pressure air remains in a gaseous form, and it's because of this that your
compressed air paintball gun will almost never freeze up as compared to a paintball
gun using CO2. If you use a regulator valve with HPA you'll always have consistent
air pressure so that your paintball gun will work at its peak performance.
As you can see, compressed
air paintball is the choice of paintball players, particularly the experienced
players. Serious paintball players need consistent shooting, if they want to
win tournaments and HPA provides the period.
