I thought that also. There appears to be words on the barrel though, just after the pump handle.

The barrel was made by National Paintball Supply back in the day and they called them 'Slicks'. I sold a bunch in my stores at the time for all different guns. They seemed to have an unusual amount of ball breakage in them. I brought that up to Geno at NPS but never got an answer on it.

They sold pretty well, mostly for the looks. After a while I would just go thru and re-hone them when I got them.

I imagine that's what they needed most.
