Jack from PE has said he's not interested in revisiting past platforms. They're all about pushing things forward.

Which is a bummer cause I'd love a DC3

That is unfortunate as it was these platforms that got many of us into the game and may bring back those who left with some nostalgia of how awesome paintball once was.

The flipside is that the Emek is going to bring a lot of people into the sport too.

I think PE going back to Cockers would have the same reaction that Freeflow is getting - where's the innovation? They look like custom Cockers from 20 years ago but people aren't happy about that.

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “Is this not too generous to these Canadians?”

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”

I'll stick with rebuilding my 99STO, but I can't stress it enough how stoked the mech resurgence gets me! I wonder how many more brands will come back around...
Nope, it's not clippard. FreeFlow SMC Ram


From the website:

No. It is not rebuild-able. However, if this FreeFlow SMC Ram ever lets you down and you have ripped enough shots through your marker to wear this out, send it to us. We will replace it for FREE. Just like in the past, we modify each an every RAM by increasing the airflow to the front chamber of the RAM. This helps reduce cycling-pressure while allowing a smoother cocking motion. This item will also include a FreeFlow Pump arm as our RAM specs are different than some classic-style autocockers.

So here's why they didn't change much:

Freeflow Technology Business Goal:

To bring back one of the most Iconic Custom Autococker Brands of all time. At FreeFlow, we pride ourselves on making traditional-style Autococker parts and accessories as well as limited runs of custom FreeFlow mechanical markers. The mechanical industry is currently full of innovation and while we applaud that, we know that some people just want a good old-fashioned, classic-style FreeFlow. That is why we are here. It certainly is not to make a million bucks. We enjoy creating something out of nothing.

When you order a FreeFlow, you are getting a marker that was made specifically for you. There are not pre-machined bodies and frames sitting on shelves. There are no markers already in boxes waiting to slap a shipping label on them and toss them in the mail. There aren't just 3 color options. When an order comes in for a custom FreeFlow marker, that it just what the customer gets. We take blocks of aluminum, drop it into a CNC Machine and make that customer's frame, body, blocks etc. Then, we DRIVE those parts out to polish. Then we DRIVE our polished parts to Aesthetic Anodizing to make the dream come true. Once complete, we pick them up and bring back to our facility where one person builds your FreeFlow from start to finish. We then chrono the marker to 280-290 fps, and then, for the first time, your marker is trusted in the hands of a shipping company to deliver to your door step.



Professional Paintball Supplies was founded in 1994 to promote and support the highly successful World Champion Professional Paintball Team Lockout". At the time, it was owned and staffed mostly by team Lockout players and provided a service that most other custom paintball shops could not. We knew, used, and stood behind our products 100%. Only a handful of individuals were privileged enough to work in the shop between 1994 and 2005. Buddy Baur was one of the few. He is 1 of the 4 of the technicians and product specialists that was there during the time it existed and is now making an effort to bring it back.

"Some of the best times of my life was working at Pro. I learned from the very best in the business when it came to customer service and quality workmanship. Ethan, Luke, and Mitch all played a significant role in not only my success in paintball, but my success in life and I am forever grateful" - Buddy Baur

Although Lockout is not currently around anymore, the impact they made on the sport will never be forgotten. FreeFlow Technology intends to build these markers just like many remember them, with the same regard to quality and customer service.

I love that they’re making new markers, specifically old school stuff (like cockers), but man... that price point... not for me
