Kenimex?

I just found out about Kenimex autoloading kits. My first instinct was to check VintageRex but I see nothing on there. I thought maybe it should be added. This is the only pic i could find:

I want one now, unfortunately that may never happen.

Is it some form of inline blowback conversion?

Yeah, from what I understand it was something like that. The big section on the back was a reg and it was a semi conversion for nelsons. I still want one, I know there's a few in the hands of members here.

I remember the ads.
Kenimex made the Scorpian pumps. Generic nelson copies that were flooding the market in the early 90s. I'm not sure who made the grips. Its obviously not a Lapco, LineSI, or Taso copy.

Kenimex started making the semi conversion kits around the same time as PMI (Chameleon), Rebline (Trojan), WGP (Autoranger), CooperT (Imp), etc.

The theory was that buying a semi-kit was cheaper then buying a whole new semi, since you already had the base gun to start with. I don't think APG ever reviewed them? Companies stopped making conversion-kits when the price of "real" semiautos starting dropping from $400 down to $200

Your right, its not on Vintagerex. They were on the old paintballmuseum though.
Follow this link. Lots of info, including the installation manual

Haveblue has a note saying that Kenimex is actually still in business, but selling tires now instead.

That was a while ago - I was actually emailing the guy, as I was interested in getting all of his old parts and such, but that never really went anywhere.

As far as the grips, I'm quite certain that they had molded their own grips and pumps - I seem to recall that he wanted to sell the dies along with all of the remaining parts.

Frame looks WWP-style to me.
