Kid, you have multiple opinions... so why not go and DRIVE to a paintball shop/field and use the chrony? And yes I agree with what others have said, those guns are crap and they VERY literally break the front ends VERY easily.

Well, the concept is simple enough. Record the "whoosh" of air as the BB passes them. You know the distance between the mics, so it becomes a simple equation.

You can do that too. I've seen vids of it done both ways.

The paper is probably more reliable since it will be easier to filter that out of the mechbox noise.

dude you should have just saved some cash and bought a GBB pistol. its been proven time and time again that no matter were you get them, how much, or what there powerd by, clear soft guns are crap.

I think those guns are shooting about 280 out of the box, given that they're C02 powered.

FYI, I saw one of those where the front of the pistol literally snapped off. I would speculate that the parts aren't really manufactured with tolerances required for the cold pressures of C02. So beware rapid firing.
alright so are you saying that with any C02 pistol, you should leave it without it's C02 canister in it?

Also, I'm looking for a high quality non-blowback pistol (preferrably C02 powered) for good gas consumption. Now I have searched quite a bit and know just about all the cheaper guns around that are still worthwhile. as such

but as far as "real" airsoft goes, are there any quality companies that sell non-blowback guns?
