They look to be in great condition, nothing like owning a part of paintball history. Have you tried airing them up and see if they are working?

Hey all, Thanks for the feedback. I was only 11 or 12 years old when that gun was modified. If memory serves me we picked up this gun from some guys garage in Torrance. The mod worked well but it is a heavy beast!
The guns are both early PGPs with the ball and spring in the slide and a detent in the bottom tube. The modified one has had a ball and spring added to the bolt. It catches in the feed hole to the chamber. It works a bit stiff but definitely has a positive lock. Other mods include the stick feed and a stronger hammer spring.

No air yet. Just clean up and parts sourcing. I'll keep this updated as I get things done.

Very cool. The field you probably played at was most likely SC Village. They have been around for quite a while and they are still out there in Corona today.

A bit at a time.

Adding a back bottle ASA from a Piranha. This one was already drilled for 1/8th NPT. The tube was drilled for the previous CA system but the holes weren't aligned so I roto'ed 'em out.

Next is to have an air line made and take off the epoxy paint.
