Manufacturer: Tippmann
Year: 1989

 The SMG-68 was originaly a semi-auto only gun. It is pretty much identical in function to the SMG-60, but was built to accomodate the larger "Standard" .68 caliber paintball. The SMG-68 had a couple of different features than it's .62 cal counterpart, the biggest difference being the removable barrel. While the SMG-60's all had fixed barrels, the SMG-68 was the first Tippmann to allow the use of different barrels. As stated earlier, the SMG-68 is strictly semi-auto. However, since the SMG-60 and the SMG-68 are so close in design, many users would simply swap the trigger and sear from a SMG-60 and place them into their SMG-68's. Thus making them full-auto.

The red clips of the SMG-68 are highly coveted and sought after. The SMG-60's came in a variety of colors, black, brown, and most often found in orange.
Another featore of the SMG-68 is the removable barrel.  >>More
