    “Zero-Spyder says...
    I went to sears hardware today and found all the o-rings for my Mayhem..
    The Bolt and Valve housing o-ring (the big ones) are size #50 1 5/8 x 1 7/16 x 3/32.
    The Poppet o-rings are 1 each of #78 7/16 x 1/4 x 3/32
    and #41 9/16 x 7/16 x 1/16. The front poppet o-ring is slighly smaller than the factory
    o-ring, but I replaced all my o-rings today with those listed and the gun shot just fine.
    It's nice to have spares!!!! “

    “These Frogs use a Mayhem body and sort of a nova frame but is all Mechanical. Can be left right or center feed with rotating breech to get different feed. Has PGI bottomline regulator (doesnt fit standard threads). Grip frame has PGI/Nova/ACI Sports bottomline holes and standard bottomline holes for a standard regulator. Missing plastic back lp line cover plate but can work without it.”

    Scott K interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bt_Hkmhx2lg
    “Here is a brief interview with Scott Kobayashi, owner of Players Club Paintball. Scott and I recorded this at the Itaintchemo Charity game in December 2012 at ASG. Scott worked for Leon Styles at his first Tombstone location in 1998-2001 and tells us what he remembers about Leon's Field Rental Only Gun (FROG). Although Scott has never seen the mechanical PGI creation he is holding in the video (one I brought to ASG that day) he does imagine the mechanical paingun he saw around 2000 became this monstrosity. I purchased a couple dozen of these ex rentals from a field in Arizona. All were in similar shape, full of dirt, some stripped threads, and all but one had the mayhem et logo sanded off”

      I'm pretty sure the black one in the videos is the one I currently have. Sadly it isn't together, as it quite literally blew apart. I will be able to repair/improve it, whenever I get around to it.
