Aardvark F1 Matrix Prototype
Aardvark's test bed guns and precursors to all the Entity, Tequila, and Tequila Sunrise guns. 1 of 5, each uniquely designed. This F1 has never been anodized. Has a Spyder threaded breech.
1 of 17 made for the pro team Los Angeles Ironmen. 14 of them were given directly to the team, thus never publicly sold. The last 3 were kept with the company and the employees.
1 of 3 Entity Matrix guns in Silver. Previously owned by Andy Kopcok of the Ironmen.
The only gold Entity Matrix of the 17. Previously owned by Yosh Rau of the Ironmen.
'The Gator' Ironmen Matrix Prototype
A mysterious 1-off Ironmen Matrix with an unknown history.
The Flagged Ironmen Matrix Prototype
The original, 1-off Ironmen Matrix. The Grandaddy gun of all the Ironmens. Milled by Duane Parsons in collaboration with Rich Telford.
The original design had something that looked like flags on the side but, after producing that, the team came up with the 3 teardrops instead for the production guns. - Duane Parsons
Tez Patel of the Roughneck Rider's personal matrix. 1/1(?). Tez is responsible for the creation of the uber rare Demonic autocockers, as you can see by the design resemblance's.
KAPP Flame Matrix
1 of just 24 made by KickAss Performance Products, each with different anodizing.
KAPP Flame Matrix
Another 1 of the 24
Shocktech Trauma Matrix
1 of 25 made for the professional team Baltimore Trauma (one of my favorite teams ever). Milling work on these guns were done by Danny love, who was also responsible for the Westwood and Shocktech's legendary autococker tuning. Tadao's first board and eyes were designed specifically for the Trauma guns and were marketed as the Trauma Eye Board.
FreeFlow Lockout Matrix
1 of 20 made for Team Lockout of Rochester, New York.

"Thor" Immortal Viking
Yes, the Bushido. Japanese for "The Way of the Warrior". If you've heard of this Viking, then you probably already know what it is!
Dark Matter Viking
1 of 10 Vikings made for Team Dark Matter
1 of the 2 Super DCF 'Holy Grail' Vikings. The second shown below this one.
Both DC and JMJ had a hand in the milling. These 2 Vikings were the 2nd and 3rd vikings to ever get special FSP treatment from DC, right after Jared's own Viking. JMJ then took the liberty of milling their signature Swirl lines on both markers in REVERSE. They're the only markers to have reversed swirls, and are perhaps the lightest and nicest Vikings ever made. Both are well under 2 lbs for just the gun, and have all the best custom parts. This gun's creator, Spartan, stopped keeping count on how much it was costing him to make when the total hit 3 grand.
The second of the two Super DCF Vikings. Also has full PL Scepter kit and 90* Tarantula frame.
'03 Streamline Excalibur
1 of 3 '03 Streamline Excaliburs in the Mardi Gras Jurassic Goo color scheme. This is the only one not drilled for eyes.
'04 Streamline Excalibur
1 of 8 and black as sin. It's always difficult to get a decent picture of this one.
Thanks to Wolf13 and Thomas for providing some of this information.
The Revenge V3
Some guns are so unique and rare that their existence is nearly legendary, and to own one is a dream. Satco 700, Pheonix, RTP Auto-Viper, Revenge V3; all names that make the knowledgeable sit up and take notice. To a fan of AKA, cockers or oddballs in general, the V3 has a mystique all its own. Although two or three are rumored to exist, according to a former owner; Mike at Splat Attack built only a prototype and this one. The prototype was then destroyed. I have heard a lot of opinions and rumors stating otherwise, but I know I have never seen another one, though it would not surprise me if Mike kept one.
Although the the rear mounted ram is not new (Eyeball, Whither's and Nestle's work predated it by a few years), it does feature a few interesting evolutions, namely the internal air passage as well as the enhancements of the Revenge line. The roundbody Revenge V2 LE's introduction at the same time became the cap of the Revenge line and the V3 became just a footnote in history. -wolf13
'95 Belsales Predator
The autococker line of the Predators, one of the UK's top teams during that time. WGP was the US distributor for Belsales' Predator, but later was switched to Smart Parts for Evolutions.
'The Two-Face' Evolution X
This Evo X was milled as a historic piece to show the diference between a stock cocker and evo, and is the only one Belsales ever 1/2 milled, so it needed a 1/2 ano job, too. Dubbed the "2 Face". A 1 of 1 Evolution Angry frame in two-finger slider form was made for it, along with a few other 1-off features not found on other Evolution Xs. It's regarded as the Grandfather of the Evolution X line of autocockers. A matching half blue, half black Halo was also made to be used with it. It's creator was "DB" of Belsales. If it's an Evo or Belsales part made in the last 10 years, chances are he had a hand in its design, assembly, and fruition.
"Its HALF tourney and HALF recball, you should have seen peoples confusion when DB played out of both sides of the same bunker - everyone thought there were two people in the bunker lol" - DB's Girlfriend
'99 BBT SFL Prototype / Danny Love Signature Series
Before the legendary SFL autococker line even existed, BBT's legendary Danny Love built 5 pre-SFL prototypes, each one slightly milled and ano'd differently: A polished finish, flame ano, all black, Billy Ceranski's yellow striped, and this one: BBTs signature black/blue/clear fade with reverse splash commonly seen on the Westwood (though Westwoods are by no means common at all). The full body, dual wire detents of different length (which prevented the ball from rolling forwards AND backwards in the breech), and extra high smokestack feedneck all scream old school. Danny Love's autococker tuning was regarded as the best in the industry, and to own a prototype that he built from the ground up is certainly something special. Unfortunately after he built and tuned the early SFL's, he hardly touched the later generations. BBT/Shocktech decided to focus on branching out into other, newer platforms and products which included the autococker E-blade frame, rendering great mechanical slide frame tuning somewhat of a lost art.
'99 P&P Super Cocker Limited Edition
Cesare Pizzo's Westwood killer, the LE supercocker is an absolute beast of a high end cocker. Built completly to order, with a heart attack price of $1850 ($1975 with black ice unireg) without HPA system or loader, the LE is one of the most expensive paintball guns ever to hit the market. Using some of the best parts on the market (including P&P's excellent 45 frame (front and rear trigger guide screws) that even BBT adopted), it could be had with virtually any option for pnuematics and internals. I have only seen pictures of four of the LE's (the lesser super's are far more common, though still very rare), and only two for sale in the last few years (by the same seller). Finding an Aurora is easier then finding one of these, especially in mint condition.
P&P also used some of the most distinctive annoes for their supercockers including a multicolor acid wash or splash with a faded splash over top. For anyone keeping track, typical price for something like this could easily approach $500. Like all P&P cockers, this has the edition engraved just in front of the feedneck "SuperCocker 99" on one side and "limited Edition" on the other. Trust me when I say this is a beautiful anno, and well ahead of its time. -wolf13
Planet Eclipse Aurora
Planet Eclipse made 12 of these Aurora autocockers. The process called spectrum physical vapor deposition(?) causes a very high and narrow amount of electricity to pass through the metal to give it its prism finish. It is NOT the same as "oil slick". I have yet to confirm the rumors that of the 12 made, 5 left the factory as undrilled mechanicals. Planet Eclipse stopped doing this process because it was just too expensive for the return they expected.
But I digress..
This one is UNDRILLED
'99 WGP Prism
Ever since I saw the Prism at the '99 AM Open, it's stuck with me as one of the nicest looking autocockers ever made. Not enough markers (and even other Prisms for that matter) have anodising that actually compliments the milling like this one does.
In '98, WGP had begun producing and selling aftermarket autococker kits in their attempt to claim a piece of the high-end 'cocker market pie. Such kits included the mass produced STO. But in the very rare case, WGP seemed to have offered a few other very diverse 'cocker kits such as this one. Digging through wolf's and other old information, I've come to understand that this particular Prism was assembled by Shocktech/Warped Sport's Chris Cole. His signature twist-lock bolt / back block combo (also later found on some Freeflow markers) and other preferred pieces would not have normally come stock to WGP kits.
I have only ever seen one other Prism in blue/purple for sale, so it's likely that these were a very limited run.
This is another nearly unobtainable gun. The Wraith was a limited run by Dragon Designz, circa '03-04 . 'Like so many other custom cocker startups, this one made a very limited run and disappeared.'
This gun is LIGHT. It's on par with a twister, if not lighter. Only 7 exist.
Black to Red fade
Shades of Orange. Light orange -> dark orange -> light orange fade w/ reverse splash
BPS Twister w/ Reflex Kit
One of the last Twister bodies to leave BPS. A full mill, P-Block, Vertical Feed, Acid Wash model that had all the right criteria for me to buy it. It has a very rare BPS reflex kit installed on it (essentially turning it into a full-auto autococker), which never gained popularity due to its high price (around $500 for just the kit itself) and tournament illegality. The kit was rapidly banned at many fields.
The Reflex Kit on an autococker finely demonstrated by Mr. Firpo:
Un-numbered Rudy Dean Prototype
A custom 1-off Rudy Dean autococker made by an employee for himself. This particular one was left un-numbered, with Rudy himself the only other person who owns the un-numbered Rudy Dean autocockers. His would very likely be prototypes. These were built by Rudy Dean with the idea of creating the ultimate low pressure autococker. The LPR is located where the HPR would typically be, so this requires the use of an adjustable regulated tank (Max-Flo, Conquest, etc.) or a preset screw-in tank coupled with something like a Palmer's female regulator. The Air then gets shot directly into the valve chamber through the elongated LPC looking part in the front block. About 150 numbered Rudy Dean Autocockers were made. An easy way to tell a Rudy Dean Body from anything else is the lack of any sort of detent system on most of his creations.
Chris Shanks Spine V (1 of 6)
A small private run of autocockers made by Chris Shanks of Planet Eclipse. All 6 bodies were milled to look different. This is #5 of those six, the lightest body out of the bunch.
An actual piece of art, this one. The body and metal shroud are both airbrushed by hand, then clear coated for protection. Finding one with a matching shroud is an even greater challenge.
Hand Air brushed Spanky's are not to be confused with the FBM Graveyard line of autocockers.
Here are some very cool vintage posters and pictures I've had hanging in my paintball garage for a long time, lots of great memories here.
I was the photographer for a few of these, but most of the cool looking ones were done by very talented friends.
