Toxic Toys "Tribal" Serial Number Registry

It's commonly conceived that the serial #s on Tribals went from 1000-4000, meaning that only 3000 were ever produced. Unfortunately, "paintball villain" Francois Louvett was responsible for creating these, and they were milled and assembled in Bulgaria, so there isn't a lot of information out there.

What we do know is that there were made in a few milling styles; Mephisto, Unmilled Mephisto, Twister, Fluster, Addicted, BBT #1, and BBT #2. They came with single frames (1.0) and double frames (2.2). Some models had a standard 45 frame (SMOOTH), others had finger grooves (GROOVES) and yet others had a built in dropforward (PERFECT). Some models had the power switch on the back, others on the side. Various anodizing patterns were available, including solid colors, fades, "techno", flames, and multi-color.

There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason, but I want to find some. With Rich and Edwin and WarpedMephisto out of the game, I figure this is the best way to get a sort of top-down picture of what's out there. Your serial number is located where the barrel meets the marker.

Please post in the format you see below. If you have questions about your marker, post a picture.

I appreciate it, even just the serial numbers and whatever details you've got would be great - I can always toss some questionmarks in as placeholders or permanent mysteries. Glad to see you're still around, Shifty.

Not sure if it's OK to "bump" this but I'd like to keep it going.
