AKALMP is For Sale

From AKALMP's webpage.

AKA Paintball

"AKA IS FOR SALE

Many of you have experienced shipping delays and unanswered messages in recent months. Larry has cancer and we have decided that we can no longer continue in business. Most of you have been loyal fans and customers for a good many years. We thank you for that, now we are asking for your help. If you know anyone or a small factory that would be interested in continuing to manufacture and sell regulators and marker kits we would be interested in talking with them. We have substantial inventory of raw parts, regulator piece parts, and Merlin extrusion and bodies. We also have manufacturing prints. A candidate should be a serious contender, this is not a garage hobby business. Please have interested folk contact our agent, David Ring, at 317-849-6800. In the meantime, we are still open for business so you can order from our webpage as usual.

We have appreciated your orders and your conversations through the years. We will miss that. We hope you have many years of great paintball games in the future."

Horrible news about Larry's health.

This could be really bad or a new beginning for the company.

Realistically the AKA we knew and loved was one where Aaron worked there.

However it is still sad news about Larry's health, and what appears to be a probable final nail in the coffin for AKA.

Sad day.

I knew about Larry's health - definitely wishing the best for him. And it's not my business, but I really hope this brought the family back together.

Sad news indeed. A drink and salute to them and Larry's recovery.

Anxiously waiting to see what, if anything, happens to one of the greatest paintball companies that ever existed.
