NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
December 5, 2013 - An update coming soon? You better believe it!
July 31, 2013 - Happy birthday to me! To celebrate I'm in the process of switching hosting companies so give me some time to straighten up the e-mail accounts. Additionally, there's a long-awaited website update in the works (once I get around to finishing the revamp).
I often receive questions on the status and future of this website. In brief answer, yes I still operate the site and yes I still update it when needed. However, the main goal of the website is no longer on Smart Parts markers in particular, rather I'm trying to broaden the scope to include general paintball tech too. These days the attention is shifted toward making older markers into "legacy" products that can still be used years after buying them. Many parts are no longer available so the attitude of certain articles is meant to reflect that.
For information on the theft of 2007, please be redirected to this page.

Personal note from me:
Many of the visitors to the site contact me asking if I'm able to perform any mail-in marker repairs, perhaps after an older marker has been dragged out of the box and returned to the game. Unfortunately the times have changed since I begun this website, and I'm no longer able to perform repairs. The website was obstensively founded on my marker repair and modification business so it's disappointing to me that I no longer have the time or logistics to do it. I would like to try again in the future when I have more free time, however I can't guess when/if that will ever happen.
The bad news gets worse. Some of you may remember the thriving online communities and forums that were once available in the past. My sites shockerowners.com, nerveowners.com, and smartpartsowners.com are all three no longer operational, so the closeness and friendliness that we built all these years has also gone by the wayside. These sites were built by we paintballers and our goal was to create a common space to discuss things that interested us, in addition to providing a huge resource for everyone's troubleshooting and repairs of their own. PBnation and TechPB are the heavy hitter websites at the moment, but unfortunately nothing can totally replace the old owners-group sites.
I'm sorry things ended up this way, but at least there are still forums out there for those that need them. I only wish I could be more directly helpful with people's repairs and mods as I was in the past, but the years have piled onto us. Savor the good times!
Thanks for reading. -Andrew "Ydna"
