Old Pump ID?

OK, Just got this from a guy at work. Says "Paintball Sports" and ".68 Cal" on the side. Kind of reminds me of a Maverick.

Threaded barrel, funky "silencer", thumb screws holding the grip frame. Nelson valve. Couldn't find anything on Google. Haven't bugged the guys on Mcarterbrown yet.

I'm trying to attach a picture.

Yeah, I can't give a 100% ID but it does look to be in the Maverick/Hammer family...

Check on Vintagerex.com

Hammer A according to Vintagerex.com

I'm almost positive its a Hammer. If the barrel is Spyder threaded, then it is without a doubt. I have a P-model hammer. I bought it so I could use my Freak kit. They are stunningly good pumps.

Sure looks like a hammer (the "barrel cover" is a later aftermarket or home made addition or course). Though a few issues. All Hammer A's I've seen have been silver. Also, all had "Hammer paintball cal 68" on the grip frame, not "Paintball Sports".

There was at least one clone of the Hammer made in China (called the S-1)...

... and I seem to remember there being at least one other clone out there. I'll dig a bit more tomorrow.

Thanks for all the help. The pump handle is a dead ringer for the hammer item.
The barrel threading is almost Spyder, but there is no o-ring and it won't quite screw into the body all the way. Without the machining for the o-ring, they would be the same.
If the "barrel cover" is homemade, they did a nice job on it. Parts of it remind me of sprinkler PVC, and it seems to be pressed or glued onto the barrel.
The hammer and bolt are brass.

As popular as paintball was in the '90s, I can see some knockoff copy being sold through ACE hardware stores or something.

On true Hammers the barrel threads were also cut not quite far enough in for spyder barrels. Didn't hurt anything, the bolt pushed the ball far enough into the barrel that it didn't matter. I found taking a file to the first thread on a spyder barrel (in my case a Freak back) allowed it to screw all the way in.

One thing to check with the pump handle. See if there's a screw on the front of the bottom of the handle. If so you can remove the screw and pull out an insert inside of the pump handle. This allows the use of larger outer diameter barrels on the gun (like the previously mentioned Freak). Not sure if this feature showed up on the clones.

It does have the small screw under the front of the handle. I wasn't sure if it was worth mentioning, but its nice to know why it's there.
The pump action is HORRIBLE, but I haven't cleaned or lubed anything yet.
I'd kind of like to set it up like a Phantom, but I have other little projects first.

The barrel screws all the way in to the breech and buts against the step, it just leaves the o-ring hanging out. The only Spyder barrels I have are TL's and similar vintage.
