Aside from the team photo of the Wolfpack, this article also offers a clear date for the introduction of Stan Russell’s Marauder (Sheridan) and Frank Postle’s “Frank Gun” (nelson).
Both of which are credited as being the first long barrel tournament pumps and top pieces of paintball marker technoledgy for 1986-1987.

In “Used, But Not Abused,” Sparks writes:

“…Stanley Russell, built the first long barrel direct feed, constant air Sheridan “Marauder,” with sight rail. It premiered at Big Game I (Southern California’s War Zone) in August, 1986. The first modified long barrel Nelspots also arrived at about the same time and were designed by Frank Postle of Southern California’s Wolfpack.”
