That ad definitely came out 1992 or earlier.

I remember, because I wanted one really bad as my first gun.

Ended up getting a used SL-68 instead, then Grey Ghost(#1257, anyone here have it?) then I had a Minimag for Skirmish's 1992 World Record Game.

I have both an ATCI and the 18" barrel, regular stock barrel as well.

Living in ft wayne all of my life and I can find almost no information of ATCI. Can someone help fill in some blanks or possibly clear up the story?

I had heard ATCI was making the TM11 series and tippman had asked them to quit when they didnt tippmann sued them out of business.

Can anyone clear that up or is it really how it went? Also a MFG address would be great as I would like to take a few pics.

Chem,

Tippmann sent a team to a tourney my team played in 1989 in Southern Indiana. They were all using SMGs except for one guy. He had a prototype SL-68. He was the designer. I talked with him about the gun and got to shoot it as well. The guy on my team that had a small paintball shop got his card and kept in touch with him.

A year or so later he told us that he had left Tippmann and was coming out with his own gun, the TM-11.

I'll check the old mags for the address and post what I find.

so basically, the TM-11 was the offspring of this designer and the SL-68?

I just added a review from the July '91 Paintcheck to my last post.
I just skimmed it but I didn't see where it mentioned anything about being able to swap parts between the 2 guns.
