The Macho Fire vs the USI Eliminator

Macho Fire compared to a USI Eliminator. Unfortunately, I don’t have any magazines for the safety paintballs and even if I did, the plastic feed block on the Macho Fire is chipped so I’m not sure it will still hold the clips.

Macho Fire on the top and USI Eliminator on the bottom. Identical externally and internally aside from the Macho Fire’s .62 cal barrel and ability to take magazines of football shaped projectiles.

Here are the two things i’ve heard about the Macho Fire (none are proven facts).

1. Steve Buzick of Rebline/Confederate Arm Supply was involved. Supposedly Buzick had his own shop or Worked with a local shop to make his Rebline pumps. Likely some parts such as wintec grip frames were out sourced for his pump. If Buzick was involved with the Macho Fire why did he not produce it locally? How was Buzick involved?

2. The shop that made the Eliminator made the Macho Fire. They are close to identical aside from the Macho Fire’s unique features and I believe the Macho Fires were produced in Massachusetts.
Was Jim Masse’s machine shop involved?

What was the connection between Buzick, Safety Paintball and the shop that made the Macho Fire? Was Buzick not actually involved? Had he been involved wouldn’t his shop have produced the Macho Fires in California.

I haven’t compared the tolerances between two but the eliminator is considered one of the worst paintguns.
