I remember seeing some of those .55 Cal "GURN-Z" splatmaster plastic pellet guns in that color. Never took one apart, but I imagine the internals could easily be swapped with a. 68 Cal splatmaster.

it is a Icon with the name shaved off. Maybe because they tried to market the Icons to LEO only.

I can attest to it being blue. Dark blue, with 2 light blue lines between the feed tube and the barrel.

4 seconds in the "Blue Book" and I find this. I do believe this is your answer.

VintageRex.com | NSG - National Survival Games Icon Splatmaster

Only difference I see is the side cocking... Maybe this is a special one? Not sure. But, the left side where it's been shaven down is where all the writing on this one is. This is my bet.

Now I have always thought this was one of the black ones that I have heard of on here, just faded maybe. Latter I came to think it may be a Icon because of the color, and the name shaved. My reasoning behind this thought was it was a former rental, Icons were marked LEO. If a field owner had opportunity to pick up several Icons for a good deal in the 90's, they may feel inclined to removed the LEO markings to avoid any confusion or hassles.
After seeing this thread I dug it out and asked my 16yr old what color he thought it was and he said blue. The lighter lines look more gray to me than light blue, but maybe I'm off alittle as I never really thought any of it was blue.

Now as Dan mentioned, and I never thought of it, but all pictures of Icons I can find have the side cocking, as yours and mine don't.

Did all Icons come side cocking? What design for splatmaster in general is older, the back cocking or the side cocking?

That's what VP has exactly, name shaved off the side and all. I'll be interested to see what comes of this...
