virus splash anno question

Hi guys,

I am pretty new to paintball. Ive been playing for about 4 months now. I recently acquired a virus splash geo 3.5. I noticed on some of the threads on here that some of the limited quantity anno geos have a production number in sharpie under the eye covers. I was told that there was only 24 virus splash guns made and only 14 of them are in the U.S. Which would make this a limited edition right? well, there is no number under my eye covers and I cant seem to find anything online stating the virus splash was indeed a limited run anno and there truly was only 24 made. Anyone have proof of this? Or know how to find out? I asked Jack Wood but he hasn't responded yet. Figured I'd ask everyone else.

Thanks in advance.

The numbers under the eye covers are to associate them with their marker after anno...they aren't the # of #.

interesting. thank you for sharing that. How do people find out that certain annos are limited runs and only have x number of them made? Im wondering if there is another route that I can go to get to the bottom of this. I did find a link when I googled about virus splash that stated the same "there were only 24 of these made" that I heard before. However, it was a very old listing from a retailer which was listing a virus splash for sale that is no longer available. I would love to see some info straight from PE itself. Maybe I can call there customer service number. Think they'll even want to waste their time trying to find that info for me? I don't want to really bother them I know they are busy turning out the amazing markers we all love. Hopefully Jack Wood will chime in here or respond to my PM.

Hi,

Sorry, I don't know how many Virus were made, but I can ask when I get back to the office on Monday.

I should be able to tell you how many have been made so far, but that does not mean we won't make another batch in the future. I don't think the virus was planned as a strictly number-limited edition. Pretty much the only cast-in-stone limited editions tend to be the likes of the SL's where we state only X number will get built before we start the run.

Jack
