How To Keep Your Marker Running Like New

Keeping your paintball marker running like new is essential for keeping up with everyone out on the playing fields.  If you don’t maintain, clean and keep your marker up, it will more than likely start running like…well…you know, not so good.  Not to mention, the risks of leaks, it stops shooting all together or ends up needing much more fixes than normal.  Most good paintball markers are expensive these days, so to avoid having to buy a new one, maintain it and do some of the following tips to help keep it running like you just bought it!

  1. While playing in a tournament or some sort of paintball game, if you happen to jab your marker into a stream of water or puddle of mud be sure to clean it out after you are finished playing.  You wouldn’t want mud to harden inside your marker.
  2. NEVER use any oil or lubricant that is not made for paintball guns.  If you end up planet-eclipse-geo3-paintball-gunusing the wrong oil, you might hurt or destroy your o-rings, so be cautious.  If you need some paintball oil, visit this link here.
  3. After you are done playing, wipe down your marker.  If you don’t then mud, residue and even paint can become REALLY hard to get off after it dries and hardens…just saying.
  4. Your barrel will also need some regular maintenance.  Anytime you play in a tournament or paintball game, use a squeegee to clean the inside of your barrel.  If there is any leftover paint inside of the barrel after playing it can cause your marker to become inaccurate…and no one wants that.

  5. Always check your CO2 to make sure that you aren’t empty.  Also, check the valves to ensure that there are no problems with them.
  6. If your marker uses a battery, replace them often or check for corrosion.

Regular maintenance on your marker is super crucial to keep it running like new.  If you have any additional questions or have any other cleaning tips you have found helpful in maintaining your gun, leave them below in the comment box.

How To Avoid Tunnel Vision in Paintball

Many new, and even experienced, paintball players are susceptible to getting tunnel vision more often than not.  Tunnel vision is the loss, or lack, of peripheral vision around you.  Here is a scenario for you to consider:

You are on the field scoping out the surrounding playing area, when all of a sudden you Team Anomaly Front Player become a part of a shoot out with a guy across the field hiding in a bunker.  Your main focus is on the opposing player – you are gunning for him, paying complete and total attention on this one incidence.  You are getting SO close!  You can just see the paintballs flying at the guy, smashing into his vest.  But meanwhile, to the side of you, all the action is going on…but you just aren’t paying it any attention.  TUNNEL VISION! 

Tunnel vision is a typical “disorder” with paintball players, particularly those that are new to the game.  The only way to break free from this is to be completely and 100% aware of what is going on around you.  If you ever find yourself becoming so focused on one player and are kind of “lost in the moment”, stop yourself and take a look around.  There are other players, other dangers and others to shoot at other than the guy in the bunker.

If you are unable to stop shooting at the guy across the field, then be sure to yell over to your other teammates and ask them what is going on over on their side of the playing field.  This will help to keep you aware and alert while you play.

To help you practice to avoid tunnel vision, consider doing the following prior to a game:

Set up a few bottles (3 or 4) to hang from various trees around your practice area.  Space them out so that they are at either side of the field and require you to turn your head to look or shoot at them.  Begin by turning your back to the bottles and then turn around and take 3 shots at each target (the bottles).  The concept is to train your brain to think in multiple and varying angles.  It does not matter if you hit or miss the bottles, just be sure to pay attention to all of the targets. 179841_10150094372848173_510283172_6455475_1813472_n

Do not look at one target constantly; make your moves quick and efficient.  Once you have fired at one target three times, move to the next.  Do not stop at any time just continue shooting.

Another variation to this practice is to turn around and “take a knee” while you shoot, or go all the way down to the ground.  This will help you to practice from different styles of shooting and positions.  This is not an easy drill, but it helps you to stay focused and to learn how to look at different angles.

Keep up the good work and learn this big skill of the paintball game.  Being aware of the activity around you will help to avoid tunnel vision, and the danger of being shot at by other opposing players.

How do you avoid tunnel vision?  Do you have any specific drills you and your team does before hitting the field?  Leave your comments for us and show us insight into your drill practices.

How to make your Rotor Lid into a Rain Lid for your paintball hopper

If you’ve got a speedfeed, feedgate or quickfeed on your Dye Rotor, chances are, you’ve had to deal with the possibility of rain, dirt, dust or mud getting into your loader. Not so now! Simply mod your lid and you’ll have a slick, easily removable rain lid that doesn’t interfere with your existing speedfeed! It’s very quick to pop on and off in the event of rain or inclement weather!

Check out this Dye Rotor Loader:

This particular Dye Rotor is in a class of its own.  It is of the most radical innovation known to paintball loader technology, with mind blowing feed rates and reliability.  After reading this, you will be able to see why the Rotor is the number one choice for loader technology among top level players all over the world!

It’s Low Profile Design

The Rotor is probably one of the lightest 200-round loaders out there.  The technology in dye-precision-loaderthis thing allows for it to push balls straight down over a short distance.  This in turn, allows for a small loader size and shape and an extremely low profile!

“Tuff Molding”

Dye created this loader with what they call Tuff Molding.  When they tested the Rotor, they found that if it was built with the Tuff Molding, it could withstand a drop from a three-story building!  CRAZY!  It also has a water resistant coat.

The Constant Feed

This feature makes sure that the feed rate is over 50 balls per second – which is way past the pro level requirements.  The result is a smooth, consistent, rapid and dependable feed performance.

Rapid Reload

The Rapid Reload makes the reloading process super quick and easy.  There is a transparent locking lid, which allows for fast loading and a secure close.  With it being able to hold up to 200 balls, this is a 20% increase than that of other loaders.  Needless to say, this thing is awesome!

Toolless Maintenance

You read right – Tool-less Maintenance!  Meaning, the Rotor is easy to assemble and disassemble.  All you do is slide the locking tab and push a button and there you have it, basic cleaning and easy maintenance.

Other features include:

  • Sharkfin Jam Release Trigger!
  • BlackOps
  • And Adjustable Torque!
