Paintball Barrel Adapters
Paintball barrel adapters are small, specialized connectors used in paintball to connect paintball barrels to markers that have different threading. Essentially, they serve as a bridge between the barrel and the marker, allowing for compatibility between different brands or types of equipment that normally wouldn't fit together due to differing thread patterns or sizes.
Both barrels and markers come with threaded ends for attachment, but the thread patterns and sizes can vary significantly between different manufacturers and models. A barrel adapter solves this issue by having one type of threading on the inside to screw onto the barrel and a different type on the outside to screw into the marker. This way, players can use their preferred barrel with different markers, providing greater flexibility in customizing their equipment.
Barrel adapters are particularly useful for players who own multiple markers or who wish to upgrade their barrel without being restricted to options that only fit their specific marker's threading. By using an adapter, players can achieve a better fit between their barrel and marker, potentially enhancing accuracy, range, and overall performance in the game.

Frequently asked questions by paintballers…
What is the best barrel length for paintball?
There exists an ideal length for paintball barrels that balances maximum accuracy while minimizing drag on the paintball. The optimal barrel length typically falls within the range of 14 to 16 inches. However, barrels can be as long as 20 inches and still maintain a high level of effectiveness in the game.
Are all paintball barrels the same?
Not all paintball barrels are the same. With regards to the threads, different paintball barrels and manufacturers have different sizes and frequencies of threads on their paintball guns and barrels. Other things to consider with paintball barrel differences are length, porting, material, and the different kinds of barrel inserts that can fit inside of them.
What bore size are paintballs?
Paintballs come in a few different bore sizes or “calibers.” The most popular caliber of a paintball is .68, meaning that is 68/100ths of an inch in diameter. However, other paintball calibers exist such as .50 and .43 depending on the type of paintball marker you’re using. As a general rule, paintball pistols tend to use smaller calibers, however, this is not always the case.
