Over the years, various companies have produced paintball marker stands built for any purpose from store display to home display, or to simply store a paintgun while in the staging area at an event.  For the latter category, few stands have managed to combine the ability to fold to a compact size, be lightweight and easy to transport, and still securely hold a paintball marker.

International Paintball Systems has set out to address these design criteria with their new stand, The Wrak, also known as the PMS-15.

The Wrak is built from five major parts, all of which are made of rugged injection molded plastic, of a similar type to that which is used in the construction of shopping carts.  Stainless steel rods link The Wrak’s folding hinge points together.

When folded, The Wrak provides padded support under a marker’s tank and barrel.  In order to compensate for different dimensions on different paintguns, an adjustable barrel support can be raised or lowered and then locked in place with a large knob.  For durability the knob is mounted on a steel screw, and threads into a brass threaded insert.  A pair of inserts allow for even greater range in barrel yoke height.

In addition to padding in the points that contact the marker, The Wrak is padded underneath, to keep it firmly on a table top, car hood, or wherever it is placed. 

For travel, the barrel yoke must be moved to its lowest position.  The tank support folds in on the base, and the front support wall folds down over the tank support.  A pair of latches lock the folded Wrak into transport mode, and a flexible carry handle is accessible inside the tank support.

When folded, The Wrak measures 8-1/4”x5”x12” and remains in its folded state due to the two travel latches.  Unfolding The Wrak is simply a matter of pushing the tank support in to unlatch it from the barrel support wall, unfolding the two supports, and adjusting the barrel support yoke as desired.
