The first produced Angels were made by Brass Eagle.


Correction, Brass Eagle was the first to market the Angel in the US. John Rice and WDP had been making them in Europe for two years before that.

The tippmann SMG-60 and SMG-68 were the first markers ever baned from fields.

300 FPS is 204.54 MPH
280 FPS is 190.90 MPH


Why were they banned?

They were full-auto.

Found this on WARPIG
Although a Rainmaker has two regulators, it is not double-regulated.

Don't worry, its a thinker.

They had no safety on the trigger, and no velocity adjustment (although aftermarket RVA's were available they had little effect when using a siphon tank, which the SMG's needed)
Later models had a cut-out on the main tube to catch the cocking knob, preventing accidental firing. That came about when Tom Ghee had to modify the ones they were using at the Western Masters, he used a dremel tool to make it tourney legal.

Hmmm let me take a crack at this

Squad busters always have a way of finding there way back to you.

Brass eagle use to make good products

Paintballs are made to same way as niquil gel caps but taste a lot worse

tipmanns really can be used for hammers

barrel length has nothing to do with accuracy

noobs really do make good target practice.

If you play your own game of paintball using Spec ops as guidelines and not as "law of position", put this in your sig.

Backpack warp-feed loaders, high-pressure air on remote, full auto marker with self-cleaning barrel, and gold tinted lenses.

All sound like recent developments in paintball, don't they?

Paintball is played in over 40 countries.

In Russia, Paintball is for the rich and the upper-middle class, rather like golf here.

For the six months when I first started playing paintball, I thought Ollie Lang was asian. Then I saw a picture of him and discovered that for someone with such an Asian sounding name, he's really white.

I thought he was asian too until I ended up at the same staging table as him one day.
