PMI Recalls Rampage, Black Maxx and Trracer SA 

August 15th, 2001

Re:  IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE

PMI is investigating a potential condition, which may exist with some Rampage, Black Maxx and Trracer SA paintball markers manufactured by PMI.  PMI has received reports that the polymer body cracks if or when the gas source (CO2 tank) becomes over-pressurized from sustained exposure to direct sunlight, other heat sources, or from over filling of the gas source.  The over-pressurized condition of the gas source (exceeding the rated 3000PSI), may result in the polymer gas chamber within the marker cracking, which may cause pieces of the polymer body to forcibly dislodge from the marker.

PMI has received reports of such instances relating to Rampage paintball markers only!  The burst disk on the CO2 tank valve(s) did not activate at rated pressures in these circumstances.  No serious personal injuries have been reported.  Nevertheless, to be overly cautious, PMI would appreciate your cooperation in immediately removing all Rampage, Black Maxx and Trracer SA paintball markers from sale.  Also, please provide PMI with the identities and contact information for any purchasers to the extent known to you.  PMI is notifying the Consumer Product Safety Commission of this potential condition with regards to the Rampage paintball markers.

Please return at no cost Rampage, Black Maxx and Trracer SA paintball markers in your possession purchased prior to August 15, 2001to PMI, and PMI will upgrade, retrofit and return these paintball markers to eliminate this potential condition.  Likewise, feel free to contact PMI as follows:
