Does anyone have a early Tippmann SMG-60 external line with a pre 100 serial number? If so can you post the serial number with the prefix?
Attached is a photo of “HT 7.”
I was told by David Freeman that the prefix letters were the initials for the employee’s name that assembled the specific smg-60. I have also hear that Dennis Tippmann assembled the first batch of SMG-60s and have seen a couple with his initials as the prefix stamp. I have also read about HR as another prefix.
Freeman wrote me:
“I think assemblers all had the last name of Thong. Denny built the first guns.”
Freeman, who was originally Dennis Tippmann’s partner in Tippmann Pneumatics Incorporated owns SMG 60 #1 which doesn’t have the prefix stamp.
“HT 7” was returned to Tippmann where it had the two “vent holes (?)” drilled in below the breech. Early smgs did not have these holes stock.
