Title (EN) PAINTBALL MARKER FEATURING A STRUCTURALLY INDEPENDENT RAM AND HIGH EFFECTIVENESS AIRFLOW
(FR) MARQUEUR DE PAINTBALL COMPORTANT UN COULISSEAU STRUCTURELLEMENT INDEPENDANT ET UNE CIRCULATION D'AIR EXTREMEMENT EFFICACE
Abstract:
(EN) A paintball marker or other compressed gas firearm is provided including a ram driven by an electropneumatic valve when a trigger is actuated to cause a main valve between a high pressure air supply and a firing chamber to be opened. This ram assembly is independent from the main valve structurally and coupled to the air supply and electropneumatic valve sufficiently flexibly to allow the ram assembly to be operable when the ram assembly is displaced away from the main valve. A bolt is provided for directing pressurized air from the main valve to the firing chamber when the main valve is opened, and with the bolt configured to provide a high pressure air pathway which has a high degree of effectiveness in driving the ball out of the firing chamber without distorting a trajectory of the ball. The bolt can be stationary when air is flowing past the bolt.
(FR) La présente invention a trait à un marqueur de paintball ou autre arme à feu à gaz comprimé comportant un coulisseau entraîné par une soupape électropneumatique lorsque la gâchette est activée pour provoquer l'ouverture d'une soupape principale entre une alimentation d'air à haute pression et une chambre de mise à feu. Cet ensemble de coulisseau est structurellement indépendant de la soupape principale et couplé à l'alimentation d'air et une soupape électropneumatique suffisamment flexible pour permettre le fonctionnement de l'ensemble de coulisseau lorsque l'ensemble de coulisseau est éloigné de la soupape principale. Une culasse est prévue pour diriger l'air pressurisé depuis la soupape principale vers la chambre de mise à feu lors de l'ouverture de la soupape principale, la culasse étant configurée pour fournir un chemin d'air à haute pression qui présente un certain degré d'efficacité pour l'entraînement de la balle hors de la chambre de mise à feu sans déformation de la trajectoire de la balle. La culasse peut être fixe lors de la circulation de l'air près de la culasse.
