Ever had that itchin to play some paintball or
practice tactics but the weather wasn't up to snuff? Check out
this new tactical shooter, Tom
Clancy's Ghost Recon. The demo is 76 MB in size so if you have
a high speed connection give this one a try. The key thing that
this game offers are larger maps and outdoor action when compared to the
Rainbow Six and Rogue Spear titles.
** Update ** The loaders
have been sold already.
Paul Sedler, who worked with R&D at Tagline, has 2
Big Loader systems to sell.
"I would take $200 (for) each
system. This includes the approx 500 round forward mag. with flip top
lid and the jumbo shaker clip. They really work great".
Another used TS1 has shown up on Ebay.
1031436296. The auction ends in less than 3 days.
Currently it is at $255.
A used TS-1 has been placed on Ebay. Item # 1187344435.
Starting bid is $75.
Do you have a gun without the video? Michael
a.k.a. "Have Blue" has converted the ATS video into Quicktime
here> There are two parts which are 80 mb and 71 mb in
size. So if you have broadband or a lot of time on your hand, you
can check them out.
Of general paintball interest, you may be
interested that Maxim Magazine has written quite a bit regarding some of
the hottest guns at their site.
My email got wiped. If you had sent in
information to get added to the Member's Group, and it didn't get
posted, then send the info
again. Damn that Microsoft. Can't wait till the "more
stable" XP comes out.
Things are pretty busy on the homefront so if I do
not email you back in a timely manner, don't take it personally. ;P
Jason Lee sent me this link to
his team, Crimson Halo. He has a modified AT that looks like a killer sniper rifle.

Tussing of Tussing Enterprises
has developed and is currently marketing their new HiCap loader which can hold 180
rounds. Yeah there has been many versions of high capacity loaders which resulted in
"vaporware", but looks like Tussing Enterprises has beat the competition in
getting their product to market.

I have already talked about this company before, but they now

powder, the same irritant found in pepper sprays. Here is direct link to their video

Hey, doesn't the HK-51
look like the TS-1/AT85? The link shows a replica of the real Heckler & Koch
weapon, but since it is an airsoft gun, it only shoots 6mm BBs. Airsoft is similar
to paintball, but they use replica firearms instead of markers. Considering that ads
are showing up in APG for U.S. distributors of airsoft equipment, it is beginning to gain
in popularity here in the States. I&I
Sports and A.N.S Extreme (makers of the Gen X suped up 'cockers) also carry airsoft
guns in Southern California.

Jaycor, a San Diego
based think tank is utilizing the AT guns on their web page, www.pepperball.com. Their pepperballs are for
use by law enforcement for safely subduing criminals without using lethal force.
Here is the link to the
demostration that CBS did in Los Angeles.
Looks like ATS is offering the AT85 and other
military looking equipment on their site <click here>. The AT16 base
unit, resembling the M16, costs $1089.00 and runs on HPA only.

It appears that AKALMP will not be manufacturing any AT or
TS1 aftermarket products for any time soon considering that they have are being sued by
Worr Game Products (WGP) for manufacturing their own line of guns that closely resemble
the world famous Autocockers. Here is a snip of the lawsuit that is posted on http://www.allthingspaintball.com/
"Defendants are now manufacturing, distributing and
selling in interstate commerce, including the state of California and this judicial
district, the "Revenge" models of paint ball guns which including a paint ball
gun bodies which imitate the distinctive designs and trade dress of Plaintiff's paint ball
guns and paint ball gun bodies in the following respects:
(A) the overall appearance and shape of Defendants' gun
(B) the incorporation of a cocking block at the rear of the gun
which is identical of Plaintiff's cocking block feature; each which distinguish
plaintiff's guns from other guns.
Defendants' aforesaid use of Plaintiff's paint ball guns and
paint ball gun bodies designs and appearance and trade dress has caused and is likely to
cause confusion between Defendants and their product and Plaintiff and its product, and
such use by defendant infringes the valuable common law rights of Plaintiff in its product
design and appearance and its trade dress. "
Personally, I don't know how this will affect the overall
paintball market, but it is already starting to create waves as to product trademark
infringements and patent law. It has been the norm that aftermarket high end
'cockers were built from bodies and blocks that were purchased from WGP, these include
those manufactured by ANS, Bad Boyz Toyz, and Belsales. The situation with AKALMP is
that they manufactured the gun bodies and blocks themselves, which in effect allowed them
to circumnavigate the standard channels and deny WGP any due profit of their designed

informed me of the following. Here is a snipit:
"Hey, I thought I might pass along this
bit of information, if you wanted to
add it to the news page in your spare time. I was talking to
Colin Thompson (owner of LAPCO) and he said
that the other day, he had ordered 50 AutoSpirit barrels for the AT85 and TS1.
He isn't sure if he is going to make them
"full time" or not. We got to
discussing the way BOA makes them, and the apparent "lack of
demand" that that implies. If you would pass this along, Colin would like to
see what everyone thinks, and how many people would be buying one."
Okay guys, if you really want to get a cool
barrel on your gun and further customize it, please email Colin Thompson at email@example.com and tell him that you interested.

Johansson put together a cool page called the, "The TS1/AT85 BIG LOADER PROJECT".
There seems to be more of a buzz around people building the larger loaders. Progress
looks good, hopefully the buzz will carry through to ATS
and revitalilze the magnum loader
project that got shelved.

Well people what are you waiting for, tax time is just 5
days from now. If you expect a refund then check Sam Tussing mods out.
"Wanted to let you know that I am
honoring the TSOOG discount, even for
players that are waiting to get on the
list. I can't honor it on ATS
parts, but I do charge those out at my
invoice price. The 10% is good
on the mods and the RG-1 regs for those that
I've had time to test and the RG-1 seems
to be a great choice for the
ATS guns whether at standard pressure or
LP. $45.00 TSOOG price doesn't hurt either." Sam

Bridger made a cool pack harness and air assisted feed
system for his gun. Check it out on the Customization Page.

It's been a long hard fight but the
release for the AKA Tornado valve for the TS-1/AT85 is set for December. I will be
updating the web page late
monday with all new info on the tornado
valve. We also have a few other parts for the TS-1/AT85 in the works, so watch for
The break down on the valve is
With just the tornado valve and a
regulator the gun will operate at 300 fps in the 400-425 psi range.
Then with an air passage modification
on the ts-1 /AT85 the gun will operate at 300 fps in the 180-225 psi range depending on
There is no alteration to the exterior
of the paintball gun, just the addition of the reg externally.
It works with CO2 or nitrogen, the ts-1
on nitrogen still needs to have the cycle rate slowed down a little.
As for the barrels they are on the way,
we have been so swamped by autococker, and spyder parts production and introducing the new
angel parts hasn't help. That we had to shelf some of the smaller projects for a while
like the barrels but we have dusted them off and they are being run again. We have also
just added a 4-axis cnc mill to help reduce the work load.
It's been a long wait since the
development of the valve back in July, 97 and now I can finally release it.

I spoke with Dave Freeman, co-owner of
Pursuit Marketing Inc. (PMI), today and was given authority to announce their involvement
in the distributing and marketing of the AT85R and AT10R. For those of you who do
not know of PMI, they were the company that brought you the PMI-3 also known as the
VM-68. They also distributed the Tagline Tracer pump gun. Here is what he had
I was very "impressed with its
accuracy, fit and finish." This gun offers real "value" to the paintball
PMI has always represented high quality
guns and their position in supporting and distributing the AT85R will only help to bolster
sales which should inevitably create an owner base great enough to justify spending the
$$$ in producing the Magnum Loader.

The patches that have not been claimed in
the past and have been collecting dust on my table for months are now up for grabs on a
first come first served basis. I will respond and confirm whether your reservation
of a patch is determined based on the date and time that I receive your email.
There are only 14 patches left. They
cost $5 (which includes the postage). Due to the limited supply of patches, there
will be a limit of one patch per person.
March 22, 1998
Several of the members of the Owner's
Group have not picked up their patches that they have reserved. They have been
collecting dust for over 3 months. If you have reserved a patch and have not sent in
the money yet, you have 1 week to notify me of your current interest in purchasing one of
these fine patches.
Unclaimed patches will go to those who
send in their money the fastest.

Happy New Year guys! I hope all is
well. The first item on my mind is that I have been extremely busy with stuff and
have not updated the pages if you have noticed lately. But do not feel like you are
being neglected. I do have your pics and will try to post them as soon as I can.
The patches have all sold out! If you have
already reserved a patch and have not sent in the money, please do. These are scarce
items considering that I may not make another run of patches.

Okay, this isn't the most current piece of
news, but it is not more than a week old 'kay. I got word from Paul Hedrington of ATS
"The AT10R conversion kit is
available so a player can alternate between the 2 guns. The cost is $249 for the kit
that includes the receiver, barrel, and VLA cover."
So just remember that Christmas is coming
up and I know that you all have been good boys and girls...right?
