Mark V .50 Caliber Repeating Pistol

Sunyjim's Paintball Club - London Ontario Paintball History

Old Canadian Field add, about halfway down the middle is a picture of the equipment used, Mark V .50 Repeating Pistol? Wonder what ever happened to those. You know my love of Crosman 3357s, would love to find one of these old Mark Vs around.

The history seems to say that the Mark-V was a "cheap knockoff of the Crosman 3357".
Looks like one. May have been an off-brand pellet gun and the field utilized the Crosman conversion kit, or maybe even made there own?

I find it more interesting that they list that .62 and .68 was banned. You were -only- allowed to use .50 caliber. Funny given how that trend came back a few years ago (or was it invented by Smart Parts?)

I am going to a agree with HP_lovecraft on this one. Although I would talk to Fat-50 because he works at flagswipe paintball so he may have some more info and possibly a specimen.

it looks like a Crosman 38T, an older pellet gun that had a solid frame instead of a break open like the 3357.

I think your right. The odd shape of the 38T hammer is the same as the Mark V, as is the barrel and cylinder shapes.

Though if the frame is fixed, how were paintballs loaded?
You must load like old black-powder pistols. ie via trap-door.

That sure looks like a swingout to me... the cylinder probably comes off the axle of the swingout, wow that looks like an improvement over my beloved 3357!

I'd have two of these if I could get 'em!

EDIT: I may make two of these regardless....

Here's pictures of the pistol pre mod.
Taken from Crosman 38T 22 cal
I'm not positive this was the model they used but it works to describe how they did it.

On the left side there is a channel that a pellet drops into and is pushed forward by a spring loaded slide. On the field guns the slide was removed, the channel opened up and the cylinder was replaced to fit 50 cal paint.

That's exactly the one I was thinking of Turbro! it looks like they cleaned out the side of the cylinder with a hole for inserting .50s and used that pistol.

Smiley's model .44 pic shows how Id like to make mine, those cylinders can be pulled off and swapped....
