Yes, the pic link is to Vintage Rex, as I don't have one of it. The http to https for all links is playing havoc with my ability to link the pic inline or the ability to create a clickable link, so you must cut and paste. Sorry

I have Walz' Papa Smurf, which is art.

My gloss tangerine orange ICD alley cat is "unique looking", as is my gator pump.

My hands tell me this one is most unique, as they have trouble using it. I find the sight necessary.

It was a small build-off entry you missed while you were out. Walz just exudes art; most of us need poking and prodding (like build-offs) just to try. I had a chrome black magic reg on the back for a while, but it didn't help the velocity sensitivity to CO2. Looked good though. The spring feed works well, but it's still a 20 round spring feed and the only spring feed I've ever used. The changer is sensitive to 12g length variations (Crosman), and it's still an Automag on CO2. I don't find many play days where the game is slow enough for me to fumble around with it all.

A thread on unique markers should have the Walz library link as well;

This is one I play with a lot. Works really well, despite how it looks.


Its the only electro-Z conversion that I know about. That ridiculous battery is a result of, for whatever reason, a 9 volt was not able to trip the hammer, so I tried an old RC 9.6V battery, and it worked perfect. I plan on swapping that with a proper 9,6v lithium, but... you know. one of these days.

This one is not mine. But it was when I took this picture, just before the 1997 Coram Big Game.


I used this exact setup to play.

There was a brief time in the early 90s, where that was the "cool" thing to do. It was after backbottles, but before bottomlines (and ECs and regs, etc).

Everyone made versions for vert tanks, ie Mimimags, Mini-lite, mini-hog, MegaZ, Panther, Autococker (not mini), etc.

Thats my favorite era, so thats how I run all my guns. Vert tanks, with a stock for balance. Here are a few.

I thought it started as a California thing. There was a bunch of fields with "gun hits don't count". Ergo, the 20 oz vert to hide behind.

-Yep. Years ago, before I opened my own field, our outlaw group invited some Anchorage players down. We usually played gun hits don't count, simply to make the games last a little longer- we only had maybe 8 players on average- so this one guy pulls out a Stroker with a vertical ASA, a 32-ounce pin valve bottle with a neoprene camo cover, and a 310-round "Dominator Commander" loader, which he turned sideways.

He was carrying around his own mobile bunker, and it proved surprisingly effective.

I think we dropped the "gun hits' thing shortly after that.
