Help
 
I've been playing paintball for many years. Recently I was going through my shed and found my original VM68s. I am a competition player and would love to shoot this old tank in some rec woods games. Is there any place that still actually has parts? Both guns havent been used in a solid 15 years.

I found this site thru a site called vmempire. It was up but seemed very outdated.

Any help would be appreciated.

What parts do you need specifically?

I might be able to help you out.

I just found a diagram online but haven't started pulling them apart. One doesn't work when aired up at all, the other seems to pop when fired but you have to manually cock it back and when you pull the trigger you get the pop as it hits the valve but does not cycle back.

I will have better info this weekend when I can take them apart. both are complete markers, the one is painted green and the one I want to restore is typical black and silver tiger striped.

I know on both markers that I am missing the feednecks. the painted one is gone, and the tiger striped has the feed but not the copper piece.

Very nice, you get the fun task of re-installing brand new seals. The hammer o-ring went bad, and I would replace all the o-rings near the valve.

Could you get some pictures of the bodies up, just to get an idea of the condition? Some parts are steel, so I hope the weather didn't get them, for your sake. Otherwise, Bacci still has a lot of VM parts(not seals, last I checked) available.

I will post pics this weekend. I had no idea these old dinosaurs still had people who knew what they were. Wonder if I can find a back bottle adapter.

Also, if you can, post video of what they do when gassed up.

Bacci has the part, and a kit up on his sale site.
