This particular PMI Piranha Tournament Special Long Barrel features the rare, uncracked molded polymer rear sight block, my favorite PMI rubber grips and a standard finish frame.

Engraved with "Piranha Tournament Special" on the end of the barrel and "Airgun Designs Turbo Valve" on left side of paintball gun. Nickel staining around solder on feed. AGD factory engraving on the left side looks good. Tournament Special Barrel engraving does look clear.

Engraving on these and other PMI Piranha Tournament Specials is very light and delicate. Original polished nickel patina in overall excellent condition.

Please keep mind that this item has patina consistent with its age.

History of the PMI Piranha "Tournament Special" Long and Short Barrel Paintball Guns

The PMI Piranha Tournament Specials were a very limited run by the factory for PMI’s sponsored teams only.

In the 1989 Masters Tournament, The Lords of Discipline played Sudden Death in the final game. Both sponsored PMI teams, with the majority of their players shooting Piranha Long Barrels (with Youngblood likely being the exception).

Many other teams were shooting Piranhas at the time and around this time PMI capitalized on the Piranha Long and Short Barrel’s tournament success by creating the Nickel plated PMI Tournament Special Long and Short Barrels.

The Tournament Special model featured Airgun Designs’ turbo valve, slimmed down cup seal and lightened hammer setup, with the AGD engraving on the side of the paintball gun as well as "Piranha Tournament Special" engraving near the front of the barrel.

I've seen very few polished nickel PMI Piranha Tournament Specials pop up over the years and these rank as one of the rarest direct feed pump models that PMI produced, along with the factory engraved AGD turbo valved blackened brass Piranha Long and Short Barrels.

All of the PMI Piranha Tournament Special paintball guns being offered from Jeff’s collection were custom built by the factory for the top PMI sponsored professional teams like Lords of Discipline, captained by Bill Zoll and PMI Piranhas Captained by Caleb Strong (one of the first NSG franchisees, first indoor gamefield operator and subsequently a minority shareholder in PMI). Jeff estimates that less than 30 nickel plated PMI Piranha Tournament Specials were built total, including both Short and Long barrels.

The PMI Piranha Tournament Specials offered on have been retained by Jeff for his own use (a couple used and a couple never used) as he was a member of both the PMI Piranha's and Lords of Discipline at different times.

These guns were hand made in very limited quantities and were “state of the art” in their day, used by the best paintball teams in the world which was integral in how the Sport Of Paintball was built.
