I got some info from Rambopreacher who had them commisioned, here is his email
The triplets are PG’s that have been Palmerized. Here is the Story.
Over the course of many years, I had collected the PG’s (not PGP’s), and had them palmerized once though left in mostly normal PG condition. After a few more years, I saw Craig post a bolt-action air-pistol and it inspired me to get something like that for .68 calibre. At first, I was hesitant to do this to a PG, but after some contemplation, I decided that not only would I do this to one, but to the three of them.
The special one-shot, bolt action PG’s were made especially for me, including the acrylic “Briefcase” carry-case. This is so that everything could be in one case for paintball dueling. The point of three is to give each dueller a choice of markers, and the one that drew the short straw and had to choose last, still had a choice.
After a season of play, and some of my closer friends knowing these are all nearly identical in performance, we started doing trio-dueling – one on one on one! Still only one shot at a time but each player also carried a second ball! Of course this lead to the three taking a whole tube and the fun continued.
Since I am not as active as I used to be, I have given this set to Jason Thompson (TheRealJT), my son in law, as something he can use as a fund raiser for his family, knowing that they aren’t as active in PB anymore either. (BTW – still have my blazer, pyre, a couple others including the Grinder – I have not gotten completely out!) so that’s the story. This set was not inexpensive and the Palmer quality and craftsmanship is exemplified in the triplets. Custom really does mean something.
Hope that helps.
