Medusa

Medusa

Manufacturer: T and L Europe
Year: 1994

A company called T&L Paintball was the european distributor for Montneel products in Europe. They handled all the sales, and service. Montneel sold well in Europe, especially colder climates in Scandinavia. However, T&L Paintball complained that they were not getting enough money, so they SECRETLY sent blueprints for the Montneel Z-1 to China to have an identical copy made.
This identical copy was called the "Medusa", and was only sold in Europe. T&L Paintball would tell there customers it was a real Montneel, and pocketed all the profit. Montneel would never have discovered, except T&L also started to refuse to do service and upgrades on genuine Montneel guns. So, customers started to complain directly back to Montneel, and eventually it was discovered, and Montneel switched to a different distributor.
T&L Paintball then took the "Medusa" clone, and offered it to American companies. Paintball Games of Dallas, owned by J.P. Hunter, agreed to be the primary American importer. They were then sold to two companies: NPS and PMI.
