Introduction of the PTP / Gun F/X Micromag?

Here’s a Team Sasquatch Micromag I purchased last year off ebay. I’m trying to figure out which year these were first used at the Splat 1 National Indoor Championships by Team Sasquatch.

Team Sasquatch Micromag
Team Sasquatch Micromag owned by Sasquatch captain, John Law.

Based on these two posts on rec.sport.paintball I’ve been able to dig up, it looks like either 1994 or ’95.
“Spook” from Team Strange posted on rec.sport.paintball on 2/11/95 that, “There will be several people playing the removable barrel model at the Indoor tournament in Knoxville next week. Check withTeam Sasquatch or me to see one if you’re going.”

And another user, PeeFeeKayto writes on rec.sport.paintball:
“I use to play for Team Sasquatch of Orlando, Gun F/X sponsored Sasquatch at the 1995 Indoor National Championships in Tennessee. I shoot a 4 inch nonremovable barrel micromag.”

Keith Roll of Team Xtreme commented to this post on facebook that he remembers Sasquatch shooting their matching Micromags in 1995 and even mentions a modification that Russell Breeden, of the Doom Trooper made to his mag:

“95 sounds right. I remember when they all had them and I’m near positive I didn’t play the event in 94. I remember harassing Russell Bredden for shooting a mag. He shows me his mods. A “magic” box with twice the volume of smart parts and a huge half moon shaped cut inside the valve”

If you know more information about the introduction of the Micromag please comment below or post on facebook.
