Never seen that. I wonder what it could be. Your going to have to call DLX on that one.

I have seen one with DBS on it, and thought it stood for doodlebug sports.

Same here...never saw the B. Just like he said the pentagon with F is for Germany...paintball markers are considered firearms there. Australia too I heard was pretty strict.

B=Blemished Anno. Put your gun under the magnifying glass and see if you can spot some flaws.

Guns with the B in the serial # are guns that have a cosmetic blemish. It may be from a overpolished edge or a flaw in the anno. This was done due to the fact that DLX wanted to make sure they could be identified and if someone bought a B gun, did not try to get a gun replaced due to the Blemish. These guns were usually slightly discounted to make up for the flaw. There was a batch of the Eggplant body & parts that were scratched & dimpled on the return trip from the annodizer, so I think there are more of teh Eggplnt B guns than any other color. Most of them, you could not find unless you knew what the flaw was, But Darryl would not sell them as AAA finish guns, hense the "B".
