Where to Buy Backs for the Old Scepters Barrels

Where can I buy backs for the old Powerlyte Scepter barrel kits? How can I contact Powerlyte?

Their website (http://www.powerlyte.com) has been down for a long time. I e-mailed info@powerlyte.com (I found it in archive.org's archive or their old website) and they have not responded. I'm not sure if it's still active. After searching several paintball product retailers and google I only found backs for the new barrel kits.

I guess you shouldn't buy barrel kits from Powerlyte or any less common manufacturer because you might not be able to find parts for it if they come out with a new kit. I definitely won't be buying Powerlyte products again.

They are putting up their 08 site (yeah, I know right?) and they just had a long move. They may still be trying to fill the orders they got while moving, IDK. I doubt they have any, but I need some too.

And dude, thats a little harsh. they havent made these kits since like 05. They make great products, and I love both my scepters. I wish they had some more inserts for my 04 kit, but hey, its pretty old.

If you go on ebay and search sceptre kit or whatever in the paintball section you'll find a guy on there selling kits. They're the newer version, but I'm pretty sure everything fits the same. Anyway, email him. He sells extra backs and fronts etc. I got an extra back and a an extra 16" tip when I bought my kit from him.

Nevermind, found a link to his ebay store:

the older kits have longer backs than the new kits so not everything will fit together

I found their telephone number (919-713-4317) in an archive of one of their old websites: http://web.archive.org/web/200602200...om/contact.htm
I haven't tried it yet since it is night time.

The old Powerlyte Scepter and the Empire Revolver are the same with the exception of different logos and more porting on the front.

Edit: I just called Empire and they said that they don't sell parts for the Empire Revolver Kit.
