Puma Tech inc made the Puma and the Wildcat.
Here is what I found on the Puma way back from Rec.sports.paintball:
Puma Enterprises Inc.
Daniel Bacci dug up the following info on the gun:
Here is what i know, from reading Rec Sports Paintball newsgroup:
"The Puma was the brain child of a guy that ran a field down here in the Cincinnati area years ago. Just about the time I started playing, this field owner sunk everything into making and marketing his own paintball marker (or guns as they were called back then). The gun was actually quite advanced for it's day, but it never took off and problems soon followed. The guy that made the Puma's quietly snuck out the back door and field, gun and everything else were never heard of again. I would guess that they are at least 8 to 9 years old, probably closer to 10+ years old. Talk about a collectors item though, there couldn't have been all that many of them ever made.
I played with one once and it had fantastic range and accuracey compared to the other markers available to us at the time. This was back when pumps for Nelspots were brand new and still owned only by the elite of paintball. I can't remember for sure, but I think the Puma sold for just about twice of what a Nelspot did back then, which is probably the reason that they vanished so quickly.
I can't remember the name used by the company, or even if it ever was a "real" company. I can remember their little manufacturing garage and that the marker was pretty much ahead of it's time.
I hadn't reallized that the marker had even been seen much outside of the Cincinnati area.
I've got some friends that actually played on the team with the guy that was making the marker. I'll check with them for more complete info, but last I heard, the guy was still in hiding from the dismal failure of this
