Unknown semi Auto older gun

Need help identifying a paint gun/marker. No numbers or name anywhere looked thru Every page of vintagerex and saw none like it. But I may have looked over something. no maker mark no s/n # at all it's heavy very well made obviously high quality. All Allen or thumb screws. Looks to be able to be a left or right hand setup from the cutouts on the bolt hold open. All billet alloy the only words any where are a "pro flow" " proteam products" on the airline fitting. And "stowaway 2" " lonestar ordinance " San Antonio tx on the m16/ar15 model handgrips. No picture on google popped up even close. And no numbers etching or stickers on the gun if ever were. 12" Barrel is ported and spiral vented. It's a very heavy thing. weighs around 5 lbs!

Weight and some other points you made sort of sound like it might be a PMI-3 Sheridan/VM-68 or the PGI Edge which was for all purposes a lower quality copy of it.

i agree with wolf, likely a vm68, many had the sides shaved/milled back in the day to lighten them up/make 'em pretty, possibly wiping out the serial number... pics please! many vm collectors around these parts...

Sorry phone crashed while loading pics . Will post them from a computer asap. It's brushed aluminum . Is not a pmi like I've ever seen and I did look thru every page or vintage Rex ... Itll stump more than me. And it was suggested a older minimag unless they were drastically different it's not that.. I aware of no marks and have not taken apart more that the barrel. And looked that the cutout was ambi along with what looks like provision for ambi feed. I'd I had to say it was higher quality than my procarbine or any spider /clone but deff old maybe early semi auto/ proto/ custom? Early 90,s ?

Pmi 3 was the closest looking one but not right shape. Mine is very angular square edged different front block near the air line and has a single trigger /triggerguard

or a heavily customized stock one... milling the sides down can make 'em very slab-sided, here's an excellent website for pictures:

www.vm68.com: Custom VM-68s

edit: and vm 68 magnums came with ambidex feeds...
