In September of 2019 I met with Dennis Igarashi, captain of Dennis’ Menaces and received this absolutely perfect condition PMI 1 converted to a direct feed rail gun by Southern California Airsmith Dennis Martinez.

This custom Dennis Martinez pistol was one of Igarashi’s last piece of paintball equipment and looks relatively unused. I would guess Dennis Martinez made very few rail guns in this style and even fewer with his custom 12 gram lever changer. This was built on a PMI 1 and Martinez removed the top tube and replaced it with a custom brass rail and feedneck.

This custom Sheridan likely dates to about 1987/88. I need to finish the article on Martinez’ history with Dennis’ Menaces, ‘Who are those Guys and that Gal mercenary service”, Working for Steve Gunner Tetz, inspiring Earon Carter with the Comp gun design, working at Quest in Malibu and working with Bud Orr at Sat Cong Village.

Martinez is a little known airsmith whose modifications definitely saw wide spread use even after he wasn’t as involved with paintball.

Giant thanks for Dennis Igarashi for meeting with me and for this amazing example of Dennis Martinez’ work which will be part of the  paintball display for years to come.
