  • Publication number: 20100282232
    Abstract: A volume restrictor can be provided for a pneumatic paintball gun to reduce the volume of compressed gas available within a compressed gas storage area for a firing operation of the paintball gun. In one embodiment, the volume restrictor includes a body having a forward end and a rearward end. A forward sealing member can be arranged on the forward end to seal around a bolt of the paintball gun. A rearward sealing member can be arranged on the rearward end of the body to seal against a rearward endwall of the compressed gas storage area. By placing the volume restrictor within the compressed gas storage area of the paintball gun, the volume of compressed gas available for a firing operation is reduced, thereby requiring an increased operating pressure to achieve the same paintball velocity. The increased chamber pressure can result in a shorter recharge time and less velocity drop off in successive shots.

  • Publication number: 20080295899
    Abstract: A compressed gas regulator preferably includes a body having a piston chamber and an output port. A regulator piston can be arranged in the piston chamber with a first surface being acted upon by pressurized gas having the output pressure. A second surface of the piston can be acted upon by a biasing member, such as a spring or spring pack. The biasing member supplies a biasing force that urges the piston toward a first position. The output pressure of the pressurized gas acting on the first surface creates a force that urges the piston toward a second position. A piston seal is preferably arranged on an end of the piston stem to seat against and seal off an inlet port when the piston is in the second position. A pressure adjustment member can be configured to adjust the amount of biasing force applied by the biasing member on the second piston surface. A plug can provide the inlet port, with a stop ring retaining the plug in place to prevent over-pressurization.
