    Is the trigger bounce from the X-valve Tourney Legal?

    I was wondering if it was legal because when i pull the trigger half way to get the bounce it shoots full auto. I was wondering if you could do this in a tournament.

    Thanks guys

    The bounce itself is not legal. The reactive trigger that is one pull/one ball IS legal.

    You can set the RT/Xvalves up either way.

    the rule that ive incountered is if they can get 3 or more shots off one pull its too reactive... this rule was put against me at iao and i had to use a backup spyder... luckily the agd crew was there and i went to the booth they gave me a few on off pins found a non reactive one that still could cycle decently and played the rest of the tourny with it.

    I garantee you can get your arse whooped by a a Spyder. Been there done that. In fact a blow gun or a sling shot ball properly placed can end your day Mr Snooty...


    No marker that shoots more than one shot per pull, bounce or otherwise, is legal. Fix it.


    AGD, where we are so good we can do it with only ONE tube!

    Glad he did

    Then I can put this up again
    Still trying to see What meets what

    semi-automatic mode marker—a semi-automatic
    marker discharges one time with each trigger cycle. Markers
    that “store” the number of trigger pulls and discharge more
    than one paintball at some point do not meet this definition.Markers that operate in any other discharge
    mode(s) do not meet this definition.

    enhanced trigger mode marker—a paintball marker
    that at some point discharges more than one paintball per
    trigger cycle. This includes markers that “store” the number of trigger pulls and discharge more than one paintball at somepoint.

    trigger cycle—the movement of the trigger through
    discharge and returning to a reset or recycle position.

    LOL - that beats my plan of falling back to my minimag, and if they judge that too reactive (its not at all) Im getting out my phantom - do you thik they would whine about the autotrigger LOL
