Ultimate Paintball Holiday Tips For Parents and Beginners

The holidays are approaching at warp speeds and for some parents that means questions. If you have never played paintball or just don’t know that much about it, it can be difficult to buy gifts for family members. If you are completely clueless as to what to buy for an up and coming paintballer, this is going to be a really quick guide as to what a few of the items are and what to buy.

Tank: The tank is what holds either the CO2 or Compressed Air (you cannot put CO2 in a Compressed air tank) This what propels the paintballs out of the Marker/Gun

Marker/Gun:  Marker is just another term for the paintball gun. This may sound a little confusing but, just think of it for exactly what it does. Marks things with paint.

Hopper: This is what goes on top of most Markers to hold the extra paintballs. Most Hoppers hold around 200 paintballs.

Barrel: This is just the same as any other gun, it is what guides the paintball as it is propelled from the gun.

Harness: We sell harness that go around the waist of the player to hold excess paintballs in pods/tubes.

Pods/tubes: These are accessories that can hold a varying amount of extra paintballs, they are usually stored in a harness and can be quickly opened and poured into hoppers.

Mask: This is one of the most important things that you can buy. There are a myriad of masks to choose from and have a range in prices from around 15.00 to 200.00. The main differences are comfortability, coverage, lens type and bounce (the ability to have a paintball bounce instead of break)

Remote: a remote or coiled remote is something that can help younger players because it is a line that you hook into the end of the gun and runs to the harness where you will be storing your tank. The reason this helps is because it takes the weight from the hands to the body. This is great for younger players who can’t handle the weight of the tank and gun for extended periods of time.

Brands: There are tons of brands that you can choose from for certain items. When it comes to beginners I think the best brands for Markers is going to be Tippmann Paintball. The best brand for accessories and tanks would be 3Skull. For beginners I wouldn’t go with the most expensive or even the best of some items because the player needs to learn how to play before spending a lot of money on the items.

Now, if you just want to buy your friend or family member a package that come with almost everything they need to just go out the next day and play the game then you are in luck. There are packages that have everything needed. If you go to the Ultimate Paintball website there is a whole section for paintball packages. Checkout the Tippmannn 98 Custom and Tippmann Cronus Packages.

If you don’t like those two sets you are welcomed to check out the hundreds of others that we have but, those are definitely the best sets for beginners.

Dye Assault Matrix DAM Paintball Marker Gun

In stock and ready to ship from Ultimate Paintball is the incredible Dye Dam Paintball Gun. If you are a serious woodsballer and want to own your competition, the Dye Assault Matrix DAM Paintball Marker Gun is the gun that will help you do that. Based on a custom design by Youngblood himself, the DAM’s trigger incorporates vertical ridges and an extra wide face, used by top firearms competition shooters. This design ensures steady trigger feel even in the most adverse conditions with or without gloves. Customizable forward and backward travel with spring tension adjustment create the perfect pull. With the push of a button the DAM can switch from Semi Auto to Three Round Burst to Fully Automatic, or if you want to get fancy you can even program specific firing modes that cater to your style of play. All changes can be done with your gun fully assembled, even mid-game. A board lock- out can be implemented to get you on the tournament field or any firing- mode-restricted areas. Precision or volume, just a button away. The all new In-Line regulator is based on the proven Hyper line of regulators and improves on it with the easiest access and simplest break down of any gun Dye has made. With the Quick Release Bolt any operator can toollessly access their bolt and regulator in one simplified assembly. Now all parts that require standard maintenance are accessed with 2 turns. With velocity adjustment accessible through the back cap, we’ve moved the regulator out of the way for that real military look and operation. The DAM comes magazine feed ready. Ambidextrous magazine release for right and left handed users makes reloading a snap and allows you to keep an extremely low profile, even when reloading. All Dye magazines are Shaped Projectile ready and waiting to deliver each shot just like a real firearm. Leave the accuracy-by-volume to the trigger monkeys and do it like the big boys. One shot, one kill.

blogThe 2 interchangeable shroud sections and front cap allow the operator to reconfigure the DAM for any style of play. With all shroud sections installed, the DAM has over 2 feet of standard Picatinny rails.  All side and bottom rails are removable and interchangeable. Picatinny rails are standard for fire arms and will allow attachment of any standard optics, grips, etc. Be the most versatile player on the field with the all new OTF system. Combined with the rotating eye pipe gearing, this system allows the operator of the DAM unprecedented options for loading capabilities. With the slide of the OTF switch, the operator can seamlessly move from traditional hopper fed, to magazine fed loading, and back again at a moments notice. Use your shaped projectile rounds when you need precise shots and go back to regular paint when volume is necessary. The Dye DAM comes standard with a feedneck Cover Plate that can replace the feedneck assembly giving the operator an unbroken top Picatinny Rail compatible with all standard military optics. Reduces your profile and gives your DAM the most realistic look and feel. It also comes with an adjustable cam lock feedneck allows you to securely lock you loader onto your gun without tools. DYE’s cam lock feed neck sits low and tight on the marker making sure your loader stays low profile with the rest of your gear. The Eye Pipe, patent pending, internal design houses multiple critical systems that ensure worry free performance. The polycarbonate pipe shields the self-cleaning anti-chop eye system from dirt and broken paint, ensuring the eyes are always monitoring the breech and ball drop. The seamless pipe is wiped clean by the bolt tip o-ring on every cycle. The Eye Pipe system also eliminates miss feeds and double feeding. In addition it eliminates external eye plates and the potential of stripped or corroded eye plate mounting screws. With even easier Toolless access to the battery and extra thick ergonomic design, this all new grip improves on every aspect of these top-of-their- class grips.

The Basics on Paintball Barrels

Do you have the bug yet?  It doesn’t take many minutes of game play or visits to the field; once you’ve played paintball for a little while, you’ll get the urge to play more and more.  Once you’re hooked, you’ll be interested in improving your game and enhancing your equipment and apparel.  Paintball barrels present opportunities to augment your paintball marker.

If you’re a novice, we don’t want to confuse you; paintball barrels are not necessities of play, yet they do improve the performance of your gun.  Consider the following information about paintball barrels; it may persuade you to make an investment, improving your game and marker performance.

The game is constantly advancing as well as equipment, but at present, paintball barrels consist of three components.  The threading has grooves, allowing players to screw the barrel onto a gun.  The shaft is the solid portion of the barrel, allowing paintball travel.  The porting is located at the end of the barrel; holes line the porting up until the end, where the paintball exits.

All threading is not equal; don’t blindly purchase a barrel without ensuring it fits your gun.  Manufacturers usually produce barrels that fit guns of the same make (a Tippmann barrel usually fits a Tippmann gun).  There are adapters, enabling players to unite paintball barrels to guns of a different make.  When making an online purchase, make sure the barrel of interest fits your paintball marker.

There is some debate regarding performance and the length of paintball barrels.  Some believe a longer barrel makes for a more accurate shot.  This belief is true – to a certain degree.  A barrel exceeding one foot may actually hinder the performance of your gun.  A barrel exceeding 12 inches facilitates the de-acceleration of the paintball, causing the ball to travel a shorter distance, limiting performance.

The gun porting (holes at the end of the barrel) make for a quieter shot, helping air escape from within.  In general, more porting equals a quieter shot, yet also necessitates more air to shoot paintballs, decreasing the efficiency of the gun.

Barrels vary in diameter.  Paintballs, depending on the manufacturer, vary in diameter as well.  Seasoned players ensure their brand of paintball fits their paintball barrels.  Some test how a ball fits into a barrel to ensure a good fit; your paintball shouldn’t be able to roll down the barrel with nothing but the force of gravity catapulting it, yet it shouldn’t take more than a puff of air for a securely-placed ball to move down the barrel.

At present, barrels are made from steel, aluminum, and carbon fiber.  It’s understood the material doesn’t influence accuracy, yet lighter barrels generally cost more.  Take a look through our paintball barrels; we have a large supply from leading manufacturers.  Of course, you can always contact us with a question!
