Autococker Featherlight?! Early STO?

Hi experienced players, does anyone have any idea what is this?

An early WGP STO?

Naw looks like a normal pre 98 that someone cut to have an STO back block fit it.

The back block has the same serial number engraved. If someone has made it to look like an sto, he was very meticulous...

I've been waiting to comment on this till I had some pictures taken of mine. These were called 'Featherlites' (Featherlights?). I received mine from Bud when he was back in Diamond Bar. They featured the cut in block and radius rounded edges on the body and sight rail. The serial number is inside the back block. These were never well known, even today.
I had this re annoed way back in the day. The grips Colin Thompson gave me, they were prototypes to see if anyone liked them. I don't think he ever made any others in camo. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions Bud would be the one to ask.

Wow man, that info is gold!
Thank's for sharing it.
Please tell me, when did that happen?
Mine has been lying on my closet for a while now and need a little attention, but I must say that it has an incredible precision! I dare to say it overtakes all my newer guns in this feature. A true straight line.

When? Wooooo, that's a tuffy. I'm thinking back and it was around 93-94. I'll see if I can find my original invoice from Bud. Yes, I even kept those as well, I admit my paintball hoarding addiction freely. When I find it I'll post a pic here as well.
