Apart from the barrel and magazine it sure appears to be a part for part clone of the Eliminator. I’d be willing to bet the prototypes were made in the same shop. That would somewhat explain the right feed. It looks to me that they had non branded eliminators built and modded them into the macho fire prototypes.
Not the gun to base your prototype on though...

Mad Science of Paintball

Here's a fun thought: The .63 caliber balls were longer football shaped things, right? And we all know that if you leave a pod of paint in a car on a hot day, you wind up with misshapen, melted blobs, right?

Okay, so what are the chances somebody could make a sort of "mold" that would gently warm up a standard .68 ball, and press it into a long .63 cal shape?

I'm not sure you could just use two half-molds, maybe a four-segment mold? Or shaped wheels that roll it into shape as hot air from a heat gun blows over it?

That last one might actually work... the wheels would need a way to squeeze in slightly as the ball deforms... maybe just a spring? And stops so that the wheels settle to a fixed size? They'd need to roll- that is, be driven by a small slow motor... then the ball would have to be 'chilled' by a cold-air blast... I think that could work.

Yeah, it'd take forever and a lot of effort just to fill one magazine... but you'd probably be the first person in something like 25 years to fire live ammo from a Macho Fire. Possibly the first person in history to actually play a game with one.

So, who wants to commission a Macho-Ball-Maker-O-Matic?

Great find! Mine is missing the magazine and has a broken feed block. I've been trying to get ahold of Steven Buzick (Southern Comfort and Rebline) to talk to me about it but have not had any luck.
