Welcome to the Online Paintball Museum! is dedicated to the collection and preservation of Paintball's History. By archiving photos, ad scans, manuals, and more, we hope to keep the knowledge of Paintball's Past alive.

This site is fully searchable. The Marker Exhibit can be viewed by Manufacturer, Marker, and Type of Marker just in case you don't know the name.

As you can see, this is a work in progress, so not all the information is currently available. We hope to steadily add to the site and fill out the data.

Please view the Donate section to see how you can help out by submitting Ad Scans, Articles, and Information.

Of course, we have an online forum, so that collectors may gather together and network. Chit chat about paintball, collecting, or post your wares in the classifieds.

Do you have a love for the history and collecting the sport as much as we do? We are currently taking applications for curators. The pay is lousy, and the bosses jerks, but we need dedicated people to help enter data. If you think you have what it takes, contact us and tell us why we should appoint you as a curator.

Paintball Museum Spotlight - Montneel Designs Victory-Z



Manufacturer: Montneel Designs
Year: 1996

Nitro version. Slip Fit Barrel. This was made for 1 year only.

The Victory-Z was a Mega-Z completely modified to run nitro instead of liquid Co2 (The stock MegaZ can not run HPA/N2). This consisted of a special valve, hammer, spring, and external volumizer. Montneel initially resisted making this version since HPA offers no real advantage over running liquid CO2. But by 1995, CO2 had a bad reputation from cocker and mag owners, and developed a stigma of being for recreational players, and not for pros. Also available as an upgrade for the standard MegaZ and Z-line. Retail price was $650 for black anno, and $850 for custom anno. Other options could bring the price above $1000! Commonly called the "Nitro-Z", though Montneel discouraged the use of the name to avoid any connection to the cheater-z mentioned above.
