As with all inner barrels, faster velocity air escapes around the BB as it travels down the barrel in the gap between the BB and the inner surface of the barrel. Maple Leaf harnesses that wasted energy and channels it through a proprietary muzzle design that creates a tunnel in front of the muzzle. This tunnel performs two functions:
- It pushes aside the still air in front of the muzzle, eliminating resistance from the denser, still air in front of the muzzle as the BB exits the barrel. This allows the BB to retain much more of its velocity (kinetic energy) and hop up (backsping energy), resulting in greater range.
- The channeled air creates a funnel of high velocity air in front of the muzzle, resulting in a virtual barrel through which BB flies along a straighter path, resulting in improved accuracy.
