Colin Thompson talks about the Grey Ghost and Grey Spirit paintguns

To: The Paintball Community
From: Colin Thompson, LAPCO

 I built Grey Ghosts from 1988 to 1993. About 2000 were produced. The Grey Ghost is a breech drop gun, with a spring under the pump to keep the breech closed. No new Ghosts are available anywhere, to my knowledge.

The Grey Spirit is a bore drop version of the Ghost. I made 500 of them from 1990 to 1995. The last 60 were custom guns, made to order, between 1993 and 1995.

Three other variants were produced in numbers. The Wrath was a black Ghost without the pump spring and barrel honing. 500 were built.

The Vamp was an english export version of the Wrath. 80 were built.

The Spectre was a black Spirit without the pump spring and barrel honing. This gun was sold as a field gun. 600 were made.

The breechdrop guns were 100% Nelson 007 compatible. The boredrop guns were produced to compete with the Bushmaster. The parts are interchangable.

110 AutoSpirits were produced between 1993 and 1994. These semis are no longer available.

 * Used LAPCO paintguns are available here.

 New Spirits are available from ABC Paintball.

Ugrade parts:

Barrel kits with removable barrels are available from ABC and Alternative Sports. These kits are Boredrop and take any AutoCocker barrel.

 New, 11" fixed barrel Grey Ghost barrels are now available.

 I recently bought out the remaining LAPCO inventory from Jon Sivers at Paintball Connection. I do not do retail business. You must be a dealer to buy LAPCO parts. Individuals may inquire about the availability of the parts, but must order them through a local dealer.

 LAPCO currently produces Battle Grips, AutoCocker Timing Rods, Bottom Lines, and many other upgrade products for the paintball industry. Dealers may obtain a wholesale price list by calling 619-695-6861, or by email.

 Thank you,
Colin Thompson
