What does a maverick / trracer/ hornet look like

Ive never seen a tracer or maverick. When did they first come out?

The ACI Maverick and the PMI Trracer are the same gun. I really don't know when they came out but they look like this:



They are "nice" pumps. The pump handle and grip frame are all plastic. The trigger is plastic and metal. The hammer, bolt and power tube won't go in any other guns (maybe the Razorbacks?). It has some nice features in anti-double-cocking and anti-double feed devices. It's light-weight and inexpensive (on e-bay --- out of production).

I had a Hornet, kind of an upgraded Maverick, but couldn't hit a darn thing with it, so I went back to my Reb, and now I actually hit what I'm aiming at.

I'm willing to discus this gun more, but on another thread.

ACI Hornets are more rare than Mavericks and Trracers now. They are basically the same guns as Mavericks and Trracers, but its a under arm pumping like the Phantoms rather than the side arm linked pump mech.

ACI has recently began making the Maverick again. It's available from GunitPaintball.Com

Now that is interesting I thought ACI was long gone. My first guess would be they came accrossed some old stock.

i'll never forget the sound of an auto-triggering trracer...

my very first day of play (about 15 years ago) this guy was AT'ing at everything that moved and it was like the death knell if you heard it coming for you.

he bragged that he would shoot a whole case!


i still have my loaner trracer i got a long time ago, it's actually the only gun i won't sell...

i'd love to know if the copper colour is factory anodizing or someone coloured it after the fact.

I was under the impression that Mavericks/Traccers etc were fairly docile and quite.

im pretty sure ACI had the same system as the model T. "you can have any color you want, as long as its black"
i could be wrong though
