Best Answer

The first paintball gun to ever exist on this planet was the Nelspot 007. The funny thing was this marker wasn't made for the initial use of paintball, it was made for agricultural use. It wasn't until twelve players with Nelspot 007's discovered the wonder of "Paintball" and changed the world as we know it. At the time "Paintball" was known as "Survival," a game that was first written about in 1980 in get this... Sports Illustrated. But the first paintball gun to be used intended for the game of paintball was the NSG Splatmaster.
