There isn’t much info around on the .63 caliber Macho Fire paintgun that shot football shaped paintballs from a magazine, but rumors point to Steven Buzick, from Confederate Arm Supply, Rebline and the Southern California field, Southern Comfort as the man behind the business.
I hadn’t come across any proof of this until I received this business card in the mail today, in a vintage paintball business card lot from Glenn Pensinger, at Hole in the Wall Paintball.
This card clearly solidifies that connection with Buzick’s name printed on it. I’m still curious about the link between USI’s eliminator and Jim Masse possibly producing the parts.
Safety Paintball created a .63 caliber paintball was shaped like a football and launched out of a paintgun nearly identical to the USI Eliminator. The only difference between the Macho Fire and the Eliminator was that the Macho Fire used magazines and came with a spiral rifled barrel. This Macho Fire was prototyped in the early 1990s and very few exist.
