How mechanical paintball gun works?

Paintball guns come in two basic types: mechanical and electronic. Mechanical paintball guns are cheaper and only have analog components.
Disassembly, cleaning, and maintenance are relatively easy because the internal parts are simple.

However, mechanical paintball guns are less accurate than electronic guns and need more air pressure to function than electronic guns do. Electronic paintball guns are higher-end markers.

They are more accurate than mechanical markers, can shoot farther, and the air lasts longer since they can function on a lower PSI than mechanical markers.

However, these markers are much more expensive than mechanical markers, and their inner mechanisms are finer. Any maintenance or upgrade generally must be done by a professional who knows how these guns work.

The most common design of mechanical guns is a blowback design. Once the trigger is pulled, this releases a bolt which is forced forwards via a spring that pushes the paintball into the barrel, a rear bolt would then hit a pin allowing air to travel into the barrel. The bolt is returned to its original position by the expansion of the gas.

Some paintball fields might only allow the use of mechanical markers on site as they might prefer the slower rates of fire. The slower rates of fire will naturally lead to less paint being shot, keeping your paint bills down. Some players enjoy the thrill of playing with a much more than an electronic because the lower rates of fire will typically mean more skill is required to hit the targets.

A mechanical paintball marker is a type of paintball gun that uses mechanical components, such as springs and levers, to function. Unlike electronic paintball markers, which rely on electronics and solenoids to control various aspects of the marker's operation, mechanical markers are simpler and more straightforward.

Mechanical paintball markers are often favored by paintball players who prefer the reliability and simplicity of mechanical components. They are also less expensive than electronic markers and require less maintenance.

However, mechanical markers do have some limitations compared to electronic markers. For example, they typically have a lower rate of fire and do not offer advanced features such as adjustable firing modes and electronic triggers.
