Winchester Model 80

It's like a zap clone. I got one for a project gun, threw it away. It's almost all plastic, but still really heavy

I seem to remember MstrTal getting one of those or a similar cheapo for free with a magazine subscription.

If this dude would pay $100 for it, then someone should sell him a BE tallon for 200.00

Even though there was a time when EVERYONE was trying to get some product into the paintball market, I still think it's too bad that Winchester put their name on those. After their long and honorable tradition, shaping much of American history with their famous firearms, they ought to have chosen something a tad more lasting and impressive. My father had a wall full of old antique lever action Winchesters, some in long-forgotten calibers. I think a KP-type paintball rifle would have been a better choice to carry the Winchester bloodline.

Talking about companies getting into I never knew about until recently was Gerber (the knife co, not the baby food). I picked up a Splat Gear CO2 pouch that was NIB. It was a subsidiary brand name of Gerber, and had all Gerber's literature and website on the back. Well, that portion of the company is now gone, just thought it was interesting.

Ya I did get one when I subscribed to PB2X a few years back. Other then the weight for being all plastic the barrel is SUPER tiny. I mean it is SMALL. I never did find paint that would work in it before I tore it apart thinking to tinker with it. Another thing I didnt like was the fact that the cheep plastic bolt (yeop I said plastic) shot out so far in the back. You could NOT tuck into a bunker real tight without slaping your google lenses. I tried canabblizing it and a old spyder but the internals while a JABB are funcky. Not tomention it has a friggin LONG pin connecting the bolt to the hammer. Dang pin was almost an inch long. I might throw it back together one day just for giggles. If I ever find a paintball that will fit in it that is. Hmm maybe I could flexhone the barrel, modify a bolt to fit and fix my old JT electronic grip and fabricate a bracket to mount it.

Then agian maybe I will just let it keep collecting dust in the bottum of my tool box.

Thats actually a durango, the model 80 was metal. I had a few, and i dont think for the price, they were bad a t all. They were $20 and pretty reliable, i dont know why people had problems with them. They were the best lender guns i ever had.

They wernt Zap clones, but just re-packaged Zap guns.

Not very good quality, enough to maybe get you through a few games.
