First time that I have seen serial numbers on one of his markers.
And most could be set up as left or right feed.

Nice find.

the bolt seemed slightly different than that of the Lapco. Was it made even lighter than what Colin would make for him self?

mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

This is what Colin was using back in 1989 (for comparison)

it has a left feed block with right hand grips. pretty neat. serial number on the grip is N1002. so is that the second one made from the second run? all the parts have a little #3 stamped on them in inconspicous places. the pump arms have a very faint E and F scribed on them and matching E and F on the pump as well, so you cant mix them up.
so it cleaned up well and other than a missing pump arm screw and the broken power tube, which i replaced, it is pretty cherry. there is cool milling every where. it gasses up, no leaks, however i think i need a different hammer as the sear dosen't catch on the bolt every time. you have to slam it back to catch, and its not very smooth on the forward stoke.

The one that Earon built me was 2 piece block I believe with 1 screw on each side, as opposed to Termite's single piece block with 1 central retaining screw. This was circa 1989.

Fields of Fire is still there only a mile from it's original spot. Jed Burns's old partner, Tim runs it now. He was in that pic DJ Yella posted. I played that day also against that team. I posted a pic of myself that a friend recently gave me.

I played at that Whittier field by the lake too. A big Hawaiian guy organized the games if I remember.

I saw Yarnell Sr. in Las Vegas at one of the early NPPL's
Such a gentleman.

Wasn't this a Termite thread? LOL

Gilly
Thanks for clearing that up, Gilly Do you remember Otis and Heath (long hair), Jed's and Tim's old refs? Did you also ever play at Southern Comfort in Pacoima, Steve Buzik's old field? He also made the original Rebline nelson based markers from Confederate Paintball supplies I think.

My old Fields of Fury patch when Jed sponsored one of our teams...

Ah, testing my memory of olden days past I see LOL
Yes I remember them. Otis was tall. Like 6-2ish with long dark hair. Funny guy. Heath had longer light hair. I think they played on the Flintstones.

I lived in Sunland at the time and Shiloh was the closest field.
But I was a regular at Southern Comfort and knew Steve Buzick well. (lots of good info on the Rebline Base Knowledge thread) I played on his home team Stars and Bars. Then Mafia, then the Bushmasters.

I last saw Jed Burns about 2 years ago. He stopped by Conquest to say Hi.

So...what does anyone know about Termite's close relationship with Jessica Sparks?

Looked at my second termite it has no numbers on it.
It was made from the group of 20 barrels that Termite made in his second run of markers.
Some of the MasterBlasters might be able to add to this thread.

Why do you think that I have one of your Termite markers?
