One time I gave AGD my gun and I got back one of the top secret P5 mags. They were the first RT Mag (before the RT) but made to fit onto a regular Automag frame and body. Another time I got back a whole different gun: this RT. It was all milled down and way lighter than production RT's. He used this gun and his own personal one to show AGD what modern tournament guns should have looked and felt like, instead of the bulky and heavy stock RT's they were making. It shot amazing and I played national tournaments with it until 2001 when I finally retired it and started using an electronic gun.
Thread may have fallen back a bit but I just wanted to say this is some nice history to hear about. A Classic 68 was my first "real" marker(after my Victor) and I can't imagine paintball without owning one. Besides, I like what was done to the body, it's too bad no one has done any runs of a ULE RT Classic body... with ego feedneck on top of that. Angel threaded necks are getting few and far between it seems.
