Anybody remember the name of this one? I think it came out around 88-90 or so. It was made of something similar to PVC yet thicker and more sturdy then a "Whaler" and loaders like that.
I believe Navarone was a sponsered team for the manufactorer.
Sorry my MSP skills really stink, but it looked something like this:
If I remember correctly it was cylindrical in shape & held maybe 70-80 rounds. The hardware on the right side of the picture represents a a collar that surrounded the body of the hopper. To load, the user would turn the collar to the top side of the hopper and there was a hole (shown with the dashes) where the paintballs went in.
If anybody has a name or picture I'd appreciate it. Thanks!!:)
One Armed bandit.... I believe. There is one at the Museum at EMR.
Repoman or Weltman has one of these.
"One Armed Bandit"...?:confused: :huh: :eek:
LOL! I kinda remember it having a sterotypical paintball name, but I couldn't have pulled that one out of my memory in a 100 years.:p
I think I used mine for a couple outings then gave it away.
Still, for the time I remember it being made of good quality components. I just didn't care for how it worked.
The company that made it is "B Cubed". They also made a "hip clip" which held two pods, which were sections of plastic pipe closed off on one end which would plug into the rotating loading cuff. Brassballs has a one arm bandit on his RTP Viper.
Some info on B-Cubed One-Armed Bandits:
From Nov. 1990 APG
From Mar. 1991 APG
From Sept. 1991 APG
From Dec. 1991 APG
Thanks T222. I'd forgotten that pizza man took over as Capt. after Andy G. had left the team. I think one of the girls on the cover photo was a daughter of his.
Wow! Constant Pursuit. Another long gone California pro team.
The Viper IS the Rolls Royce of paintball guns.
Brass, weltman and myself run One-Arm bandits on our Vipers.
I believe it was either Evil Brother or Schmavis, who let me shoot a viper in the Hell Survivors chrono, I have to agree! Did they ever make SC vipers? I'm not too familiar with them.
That hopper is a great idea! It's amazing some of the things people have come up with.
Anyone live near chula vista? Go check out that addy and see if they still exist. Might have a stash laying around.
