This.... makes me think that the realistic velocity range for this is really in the 200-250fps range, instead of 300fps. So, lets do our math off of 225fps instead. That's a whole lot easier to reach than 300. (heck, most fields are 285 nowdays anyhow...)

That's not an acceptable number in a gun doing 10bps for 10 minutes at a time, but for a two shot marker? That ain't so shabby.
You'll also note that they sell very small barrels for these things. I think they are banking on the pressure build up behind the ball before the ball gets moving.
Anyone know what the valving system looks like in these things?
