It's called Ultimate Scenario Paintball. They supposedly sell paintball ordnance weapons made from metal, not ABS or PVC.

Has anyone done business with this guy? Is he a scammer?

Although some of the products seem very unnecessary to me, the website seems ok. I would maybe call and ask some questions first though.

They say "We have highly qualified and skilled craftsman and designers that are currently in the process of creating new never before made Scenario weapons". Yet the picture is of some kid in his bedroom holding some gun. Plus half those links go to some other site. I wouldn't bother.

yes sir, according to a comment left by mr. Special ops paintball they love the products these guys make and can't wait to get them in stock so they can use them in salt lake city....

If any one buys from this site it better be just to see how it looks when you drop one of those things off a 10 story building.

favorite part: "Warning: all designs are patented and copyrighted Do Not Replicate for sale or you will be taken to court." Right in the middle and all that.

Plus, pics on a trampoline and that pic of a kid? Looks like the kids doing it. Its actually an ok concept, pvc IS dangerous, but I think its a 10yo trying to make money.

All of these look really dangerous to me i mean its steel pipe for plumbing its not meant for high pressure gas even it can withstand it all of that stuff looks home made and overall really unsafe and for basically the same price you could get the JCS launcher or a metadyne havoc launcherbut his things look like they were assembled in a garage with some spare pipe, solder, some plumbing bits and some gun parts. I can clearly see a cupboard handle on the "German Panzershrek" as well as a ball valve. I kinda hope he is scaming people cause id hate to think he is shipping this stuff out to people.

meh, i wouldnt buy from them even if they were legit....

....they are WAY over priced.....i know for a FACT that their "M-79 Blooper" cost only $30 to make ......they're selling it for $200


...not to mention that a lot of their products look really crudely made.....

...ide say either buy a Legit one or learn to make one yourself...its actually a lot of fun........if you do it safely!!!

Well it took all of 5 min for me to type up a reply. All his pics are stolen from tippmann ordinance website. He is a fraud. Yes that is me that posted last.

I did a reverse phone lookup of the number listed on their Contact Us page. It's a Sprint cell phone in NY, NY.

Okay, thanks guys. I'm gonna go with Cesar's idea and make one myself. :ghillie:

When it's done (in a month or so) I'll give it a paint job a show a pic.

I agree. Do it with safety being your #1 priority.

Also, the layout for that website is a freewebs.com layout. Its probably someone with a freewebs account (premium or w.e.)

Look at their pics as well... Most aren't even paintball, and the ones that are have been pointed out by lego..
