70's era brass pump? What do i have here? Power Line 1200

hey guys I picked this up from a guy on Craigslist for $20 today, I know its old and my best guess would be late 70's since my dad confirmed it as well(he said he seen the same gun in southern Cali then and some guys playing useing them) plus the "Thermo" valve on top of the C02 tank, got pics posted. There is marking that says Power Line 1200 on the grip and nothing else except for the patent #3,788,298 so what do i have here?

I did find this, but the patent # says its a Nelspot 007

This first Nelson paint pellet was not intended for the sport of Paintball - it was intended for the forestry industry. Likewise, the first commonly used Paintball gun was actually designed for the forestry industry - the Nelspot 007, invented by James C Hale (U.S. patent 3,788, 298 issued on January 29, 1974.)

The patent number isn't a built on date and since the GAME of paintball dates from the early 80's I highly doubt it was used in the 70's in California.

I would be more inclined to go with bigoldskools opinion.....

How long were markers used in the forest service before being adapted to PB?

ok i finally dug up what it is, it is a original nelspot 007 and heres the info i got on it

Nelspot 007 with TAG (Texas Air Guns) brass barrel kit. TAG was one of the first company's manufacturing direct feed style bolt-on replacement bodies for the Nelspot 007. This version is breech-drop and uses all of the 007's original internal parts. The kit pump handle is made from PVC. The gun also features what was called "California CA", or an L-shaped stock with a hose running to a 10 oz. tank mounted beneath, although for convenience, the original thermo vavle has been replaced by a standard pin-valve.
