Prototype Vector engraved, Mr. Bungle

Pre production, pre serial and supposedly prototype Vector.

Mr Bungle Prototype Vector

No serial plate on the ram tube.

The earliest Vectors had names of bands engraved on the side plate. 

The seller, Frank Palmisano told me he used this twice.  It does look pretty nice. I bought this in 2005.

When I purchased this Vector, Palmisano wrote me:
“It’s a proto-type [Vector] because it’s before they put the name or serial number on [the Vector], and they were being made one at a time. I bought it from Gino of National Paintball Supply fame when he was running national paintball from the back of his dad’ pizza shop.”

After trying trying to get more information out of Palmisano he wrote me back:
“I bought it new, but it didn’t come with paper work. I’ve had it out twice.”  He went on to write, “[This Vector]  is in new condition, no scratches. Mr Bungle is the name of a band, since it was a proto-type there was no name on the name plate.
