This specification covers the performance requirements and test methods for paintball markers that propel paintballs using energy released from compressed air, compressed gas, or a combination of compressed air and gas. This does not cover non-recreational paintball markers such as those used in law enforcement, scientific, military or theatrical entities. All paintball markers should be supplied with appropriate literature, packaging, finish, design, and disabling device and shipped according to the specified shipping conditions. Under no circumstances should the cocking or pumping mechanism of a paintball marker cause a marker to discharge unintentionally while the marker is being cocked in accordance to instructions. Markers should not accidentally discharge when exposed to jolts strengths within the specified range.View Less
