An interesting STO, what's the story behind it?

So on pbn an interesting looking STO pops up (standard "what is this gun worth" thread what cocker is this? - PbNation ).

I find it rather intriguing, and I bet the collected uber knowledge here has some further info on this gun's history.





Oddly low serial number.

I brought the body to #16 home a few years ago. (has a sandridge eye hole slided in it tho...)

From what I gathered it was a factory team style in either 97 or 98, as I can't remember what the general consensus was.

I think that one was up on ebay a few months ago, I can't recall what it went for, but I DO recall the guy wouldn't ship to AK and that torqued me off. Honestly, I didn't need a twin for #16 anyway.
Either way, pretty nifty looking. I don't know if I'd pay what that guy was asking in the for sale thread ($400).

And here's a terrible picture of mine all put together:

And thus proves my hypothosis that you can show a picture of ANY paintball gun, and a member on MCB not only knows what it is, but owns one.

Thanks, that will help a lot.

You're welcome- I apologize that I can't remember the details better.

I think someone here knew the story first hand. Wolf 13 most likely. The guys on Custom Cockers were talking about this one too.

I'll do some searching on custom cockers tomorrow. Haven't check that site out in a while (heck, don't remember if I ever got around to registering there yet).

IIRC They were super limited run anno's of the common STO's... with some milling extras and parts.

They had a prefix or suffix added to STO to make it something else..

Its was during the hight of freaky anno craze

I was at the Zap Amateur Open in the late 90's and WGP had several of those bodies with the "WGP" window milled and various kinds of awesome, crazy anno jobs. The bodies alone were like $575 back in the day IIRC.

Either a Budd Orr sig series or a Jeff Orr sig series. I had heard that there was 25 made, but my buddy bought one and its serial was #26. The one my buddy has is a green/blue version. Nice guns none the less.....................

We're so predictable..... Although I'm new enough that I don't have anything yet that qualifies me to join the ranks of the pundits.
