Another Wolfpack photo and article (by Jessica Sparks), scanned from the “19” article that appeared in the March 1990 issue of Paintcheck.
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.”
And linked above and below are the scan of page one and two of Jessica Spark’s “Used, But Not Abused” article, which lends the reader tips on how to recycle your classic pump before the earlier internet groups (rec.sport.paintball).
