Brassballs, here John Pope's AGS rifle. Pope was the manager at AGS and then at Taso after Matt Brown and David Craig split.
Unfortunately it's missing the bolt / ram assembly.


I will have videos with Glenn and John Pope talking about this rifle in the next few weeks. Also have a video with Bud talking about it but I think the sound is too bad. No ETA on Bud's.

Minimag03, It's really neat hearing Glenn talk about that. This one my favorite video from his series.

FrankTheTank, Thanks! I learn so much from each of these and then as I edit it and listen to it over and over it helps me retain it.

Thanks for this

Paintball history is disappearing fast and little of it is documented unfortunately.

Thanks Mike, your interviews videos from the mid 90s are great!
Here is another related video with Glenn where he talks about the design progression from the Hurricane to the Stroker and the guns in between from 1989 to late 1990/early 1991.

Thank you Dan

These videos are great for people like myself who were not in the sport at that time.

Another video from this series with Glenn (and Craig). This segment with Craig show the ram that Forest Cox used in Elite Weapon MFG's Elite rifle.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VCI0QpTLqY

Craig goes over the drawbacks of this system which Cox developed and sold (marketed in ads in APG) in 1989. Glenn did the soldering on the bodies but Cox did the actual pneumation and Craig explains how it differed from the AGS and Hurricane.

By this point Glenn already had Camille built in an earlier state but was still in agreement with David Craig at AGS not to build and sell any of his own rifles (since they would be competing with AGS' rifle). Soon after this point Glenn and Forest were seeing too many of the Elite Rifles have issues and during this period (of mid 1989) AGS and Taso split and when Glenn spoke to David Craig (who went on to run AGS and then work at PMI) about the AGS rifle he was told to go ahead and use it since the system was too complicated.

Within a few month Glenn would take on his second semi project/commission (Hugo / double barreled pistol) and build his next two Hurricanes rifles leading up to the beginning of 1990 when a combination of these semis were used by the Dogs of War to place 2nd at the Predator Cup at Paintball Sams in Sacramento.
