Welcome to the VintageRex.com Online Paintball Museum!
VintageRex.com 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.
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 - Dye - Dave Youngblood Enterprises DYE Matrix
Manufacturer: Dye - Dave Youngblood Enterprises
What ultimately ended up as the Dye Matrix started in 1994 as a conversation between machinist Lee Kirwan and paintball shop owner Mike Lukas. By the time the valve was patented in 1997 there was nothing else out there like it. They approached differed companies to make their guns, eventually settling on ProCaps. The gun was converted to electropneumatic and unveiled at Skyball 2000. It went through several revisions, namely to fix the terrible 1st generation bolt kits, and add low pressure regulators. Procaps sold them under the Diablo brand.
