Own the patent to the first paintball gun?

You don't get the rights to the design, just a nifty copy of it to hang on your wall. Its signed too! I didn't look into this one to much but I thought it was kind of funny.

It doesn't say who signed it... I could print one out from his listing, sign it and sell a thousand of them....

That was my thought, some random person signed it and technically its signed. Thats why I put it under oddities, because its kind of a random auction.

Some one once posted a newspaper articule on the old MCB. Not the first paintball gun no but the design team who revamped the original (007s?) for paintball play where awarded a signed copy of the pattent and one of the markers by the company at the time. I really wish I could remember who posted the articule becouse I am sure I have my facts a little mixed up. Maybe ask Carter when he gets back he should know.

If you look at the top of figure 2....... doesn't that look like a (tilted) smart parts logo? It must be their's.
