PSI M-16 Stinger Silencer / Raincover

Early this year I found a seller in Canada offering a small selection of old pump parts for the Pursuit Supplies International M-16 Stinger pump paintball marker.

Two pump handles from the PSI M-16 Stinger and a front sight.

Pictured above are the included pumps handles and a front sight that were obviously from the PSI M-16 Stinger. I believe the sight is cast and the handles are plastic or milled pvc, but I haven’t handled them in a few months so I’m not totally sure.

But one items that wasn’t as obvious was a black and grey PVC and Delrin piece. It looked like a raincover but I wasn’t sure if it was home made?
After receiving it and examining it, it’s now clear that it was a piece offered with the M-16 Stinger, that fit the .62 caliber brass barrel.

Looking though advertisement scans for another Pursuit Supplies International article, I found this ad which appeared in the March of 1990 issue of Paintball Sports International magazine.

The M-16 Stinger ad lists contact details for Lyle Kuchmak, who distributed PSI out of Canada, and the Silencers featured directly above must have come with some M-16 Stingers. These could have been made locally to Kuchmak or made by Steve Constable and his associates at Pursuit Supplies International in New Zealand and imported.

The above M-16 Stinger was purchased from Grant Fraser in New Zealand and imported several years back.  The Silencer / Raincover fits on it perfectly and the combo shoots decently with .62 cal.
I recorded a shooting video back in July/August 2015 and will be posting a video in a couple months when I get around to editing it. Unfortunately the .62 caliber I have is extremely hard.
