But I've never seen the VM68 version at a field. By 94/95, VM68s were no longer a "high end" tournament gun. Everything was mags, and cockers, (with mostly Tippmanns, Montneels, F2s, etc taking up the slack).

And believe me, I LOVED my VM68. I did everything imaginable to it. But the double-trouble had no interest. It wasnt my tournament gun, and it wasnt really tournament legal anyway. It ended up as an expensive novelty.

Kinda like those trigger "crank" kits? WHo remembers those?
