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 - Air Star Nova 700
Manufacturer: Air Star
The Nova 700 was the first gun made by Air Star. The nova 700 and the supper nova both had no bolt, the barrel of the guns actuated back and forth. When the trigger was pulled the barrel would move backwards sealing off the feed port and then the gun would fire. To take off the barrel you would have to degas the gun and then give the barrel a 1/4 turn and pull forward to remove it. The story goes, an engineer that invented a T-Shirt shooter for stadiums to shoot shirts to the fans had a son that played paintball and he said he could modify his T-Shirt shooter to shoot a paintball.
