Paintball Australia started in February 1986 supplying paintballs and paintball guns or markers and equipment, to the then pioneers of paintball in Australia. In fact it was originally called "Skirmish" and in Queensland the name has stuck, in other states of it is more commonly know as "Paintball". The paintball scene has grown quickly and dramatically since those humble days in the mid eighties.
Originally paintballs where available in 2 common calibers .62 cal and .68 cal paintballs but the .62 paintballs fell to the way side and .68paintballs has since become the industry standard.
As for the Paintball guns themselves, boy have they changed! The first paintguns where side-feed bolt action rifles that held 14 paintballs which were slow and tedious to load, players had to lift the paintgun muzzle up and while rolling it on it side, work the bolt and hope one of the paintballs would roll into the breech and get ready for your next shot. As you can imagine there was a lot of movement back then. As with all sports, paintguns and the equipment started to develop and with that came the advent of gravity feed, constant air, hoppers that held 40 paintballs then 100 paintballs then 200 even up to 300 paintballs, whilst this was going on the paintball guns went from bolt action to pump action to semi-auto and now we have paintguns with electronic triggers and brains for even faster rates of fire. Of course to feed the paintballs quick enough the hoppers evolved from a plastic box. Then motors and sensors were fitted to help get those balls into the gun faster, in the paintball industry there called agitated hoppers. Then came the force feed hoppers to get the balls to the guns faster than what gravity could. So as you can see a lot has changed. At Paintball Australia our paintball shop has the first bolt action paintgun from Sheridan, Australia's first custom bolt action paintgun and some of the older style guns on display for you enjoyment.
