Pursuit Supplies International Scorpion from New Zealand

Here is a Scorpion that I imported from New Zealand with the help of Grant Fraser several years back.

This earlier version of the PSI Scorpion was cast in New Zealand by Steve Constable of PSI and I don’t think many made it to the US. The later version, known as the Scorpion Elite was distributed in the US and Canada by Lyle Kuchmak (of Quest for Adventure) and featured a top carry handle.

I’ve heard from several sources that Constable was the first to incorporate the powertube into the Tippmann SMG 60 and his modified SMG 60 became the Scorpion.

And I’ve also heard that Steve Constable worked with Dennis Tippmann Sr on the powertube in the 68 Special. I’ve heard the opposite as well so I really cant say one way or another but it is an interesting rumor. 
I do know for a fact that Constable visited Tippmann’s factory during a trip to Chicago where he stayed with David Freeman.
