All guns in this thread are currently owned by me.
I started playing sometime around 2002, took a break from the tournament scene and playing regularly about 2007. I'm starting to pick it back up again and the fact that I can pick up all the old guns I used to dream of owning is great.
I could never get myself to sell anything...

Story taken from splat attacks' website (Seen below)
"The Revenge Story
It all began in late 1998 when a well-known paintball store in Washington State decided it was time to take a step towards separating themselves from the competition. For years Splat-Attack Paintball Supplies out of Kent, Washington had been known locally as a custom shop specializing in upgrading Cocker-based guns. With the likes of Jon Richardson of Team Avalanche constantly customizing his own marker, Splat-Attack had perfected their own “Custom Cocker”. The next step was supplying the growing need for main bodies. As a small shop, getting the parts from the big companies was not easy. After several unsuccessful attempts to get main bodies they called on a company that had been assisting them on many components of their already successful low-pressure markers, AKALMP. They told them of the unavailability of blank bodies to create their own distinct look and were informed that the process had already begun to bring a new aftermarket body to the public.
Soon after a “meeting of minds” with AKALMP, production of the Revenge began in mid May of 1999. Soon after that, AKALMP and Splat-Attack were named in a lawsuit alleging the Revenge had infringed on the “trade dress” of the STO Autococker. After nine months of hearings and court appearances the lawsuit was dismissed on Jan 20, 2000. Although no one really wins when the lawyers get involved; we won.
In early 2000 full production of the Revenge began. First of many changes came soon after starting with a new look to the body by adding special milling, used only on the Revenge. Next was an update of the trigger. Tired of sanding, polishing, and fitting each trigger plate Air smith Eric Aho, Revenge masterminds Steve Caldon, and Doug Fujimoto contacted AKALMP once again with the complaint of poor quality sears and trigger plates. Before long AKALMP developed sears and trigger plates that would require less work and allow for a much better feeling trigger. Also updated was the front gas block. Because the fit of the front block is so important for a precise function, we had to have one made for us. Its unique features make it fit better and is stronger too.
As of May 2000 Splat Attack has sold many Revenges and almost every marker has its own unique feel and look. With the constant demand for this marker, Splat-Attack has now a series of house colors in an effort to have a surplus on hand. Splat Attack also is so confident of The Revenge that they offer a limited LIFETIME warranty.
New changes have been implemented with the addition of a redesigned front block, smaller pneumatics, a new body design, and engraved Revenge logo. These newest twists show that Splat Attack is constantly changing the Revenge to make it stand out from the competition." Kraken (milled merlin) #69/80

Ano by Arc Anodizing Sam Rhodes Milled AKA Excalibur
I don’t know much about these. Very few bodies were milled by Sam and most were Vikings so this one is especially rare. These were all milled by hand and no two bodies that Sam did were the same to my knowledge.
The body is in fair shape but I’ll be sending it off to ano soon. Aces High AKA Merlin
1 of 17 total, 1 of 7 from the second run with additional milling according to Young Choi who made these
"There are a total of 17 floating out there. Wolf13 owned one from the first batch, but yours is one of the second batches that we made. Everyone loved the color scheme and they sold quite fast. We used different parts as far as the front block goes and used a screw to balance the sear spring better. We did away with with trying to polish the trigger plate and went with ANS trigger plates as we tried to get the shortest and snappiest trigger pull. We also did more extensive milling on the second batch guns."
These were kind of neat because there was an in state feud between Young Choi at Aces High Paintball and Splat-Attack who was making the Revenge at the time. Most of the Aces High Merlins ended up being sold out of state because of the "hate army" as I was told. I like both of these markers and they are great in their own respect.
This one has been a restoration process. Still a long ways to go. I've replaced nearly everything but the body. Had an AKA hinge frame matched by Caustic and he did a phenomenal job!
