With the upswing in paintball these days, and the revival of Mech play. Paintball is in the best place it’s been in years, and I really think they could start over with a small run decent marker.

They were so close with the A1, make it hoseless, get rid of the eye cover thing, and cocker or luxe threads, serviceable ram.

I was curious why no one is doing anything with this name yet.

Counterpoint - the A1 is an awful marker almost all around. The trigger is pretty good though. I say that as someone so has been struggling to get an A1 working for months.

But the SB (the A1 platform optimized) isn't.

That's where they could start.

I agree, every SB I've owned and sold, I regret.

Production was moved back to the UK from China, so tolerances and variance improved considerably, especially where the ram and valve were concerned. Doing away with the rotobreech eliminated the bolt stick issues (although it's an odd system). It came with a user-upgradeable board.

By the time it shut down, the only IP held within the WDP, Ltd structure was one patent related to the Magno valve. The registered trademarks and the rest of the patents and intellectual property were all transferred to the Green bros individually before WDP was wound down. If you wanted to inquire about licensing, Ged Green would probably be the man to speak to.

I believe you can find him on LinkedIn, or if you contact NPF Bassetts Pole they can probably put you in touch.

Good luck with this.
There have been a number of tries to revive APS by individuals who could make it happen and it hasn't.
From what I understand, they do not want to let go of it and prefer it to be left as it.
Of course, that was all BC (Before Corona) and situations can change.
I am sure that if you were to pile money high enough, that it would change someone's mind, but then it would come down to just how much profit could be made from it.
Eventually the pride and nostalgia and all the good feelings has to come to grips with keeping the lights on and food on the table.

I couldn't imagine they would ever bring the company back to be honest. They would essentially need to develop an entirely new marker platform. There is no way 3tube would be a popular platform style again and I can't imagine Ged is staring at the costs of developing a new marker with much enthusiasm. I look at them like a band with a lead singer who died, and the rest of the band prefers to let the name rest.

To be entirely honest, they were rapidly losing market share as early as 2002/3 when they nearly refused to just put breakbeam eyes in their marker, and by their end almost no one was shooting their markers outside of nostalgia guys. They had a good run, nothing wrong with that, but their own demise will still be forever connected to the wild ambitions they had with the NPPL and the pile of money they burned in that series over the years.
