An ACI Griffin with the electronic Sonic Conversion kit. I don’t know a lot about these kits but I’m guessing they were made by Leon Styles and PGI for ACI.
They share the same ACI bottomline reg and I “think” they use the same solenoid as the early electronic Super Novas.
Does anyone know more about them they’d like to share? They were advertised in APG around 2000 or 2001 I think?
The pictured model has a serial ending in 7 so it’s possible it’s the 7th model made?
The ACI Sonic conversion kit is mentioned on Warpig.com in the August 2001 IAO article:
Bill Mills writes, “ACI’s Jerry Sullivan introduced the Griffin XP – the low priced Griffon with the additional flash of ACI’s exclusive patterened anodizing. The Sonic electropneumatic conversion transforms Griffons, Spyders, or Pirranhas, coverting them into electropneumatic paintguns.”
I believe Jerry Sullivan is related to Brian Sullivan (creator of the Equalizer double action).
