Now I'm seriously knew to paintballing,thanks I've not even got a setup yet so there may be no need for this.

Basically I shoot air rifles Aswell as the bigger rifles but we blueprint and Polish all the internals especially in air rifles to get them alot more consistent. For example my air rifle does 3 fps spread over 50 shots which I achieved from basically polishing the sear springs and hammer. Is this done with markers Aswell, I know accuracy isn't as crucial in pb but every bit has got to help. And when I say Polish, I mean mirror finish

Not many modern markers and certainly not electro pneumatic still have hammers and Sears

And because the markers are almost entirely airtight there's only really contact between moving parts by greased rubber/metal

It may possibly help in some cases but most marker companies have good tolerances as standard
