Yesterday Tim at Paintball Tek posted pictures of Lori Wilcox’s (of Palmers Pursuit Shop ) Tornado.
A Tornado is Palmer’s semi auto conversion for nelson based pumps.
The 4-5 Tornados I have seen in person and in pictures were all built on wintec sliding triggers. I would guess these were all done around 1989-1993?
Here is a Tornado that I purchased from Patrick Lee in Calgary Canada.
Lee was the airsmith at Edmonton Survival Games (ESG) and one of the team captains of the Splat Aces (of Edmonton). Their home field was Survival Games Edmonton.
This Tornado is built on a Lapco Grey Ghost and Patrick would change the ghost from pump to semi by adding a different frame and pump handle.
