Silver products restocked
Posted on September 7, 2017
We just received a shipment of many silver-anodized products that previously were available only in black finish. The following parts are now also available in silver and ready to ship: Autococker XL adapter, XL front adapter, Mini-GS VLP-X grip frame, AxePro VLP grip frame, AxePro single trigger kit, and T-rail drop forward.

Autococker XL barrel adapters
Posted on August 22, 2017
A new XL-insert barrel adapter is now available, this time allowing compatibility with any Autococker-threaded barrel. This adapter fits with any barrel made to utilize non-XL Freak-style inserts, including both one-piece and two-piece barrels.

New "VLP-X" Mini-GS grip frames (version 2 frame)
Posted on August 9, 2017
Our VLP-X upgrade grip frame for Mini-GS has officially back restocked after a long haitus. The frame has been redesigned to utilize a similar low pressure air chamber reservoir that we developed for the AxePro marker. The new upgrade package is ready to ship in dust black, with silver color option coming soon. We're also working on the installation video, but you can check the AxePro VLP frame installation video in the meantime (regulator install procedure is identical).

Custom feedneck adapter modification service
Posted on July 29, 2017
We're now officially offering a custom modification service to install an Empire-spec feedneck adapter onto marker bodies that require a press-fit feedneck. Send your marker body into us and we will properly install the new adapter and return it safe and sound. We've already created several press-fit adapters for certain marker bodies; if your marker needs a new feedneck to be created then we can easily fabricate it for you.

Luxe and Fastback feedneck adapters
Posted on July 20, 2017
Two new additions to our line of Empire-spec feedneck adapters: NXT-threaded adapter for Luxe markers, and Angel-threaded adatper for Fastback Autococker markers.

Freak XL adapters
Posted on July 1, 2017
We now offer a XL insert barrel adapter that allows new XL-length inserts to be utilized with older non-XL barrels. This new adapter will work with all your existing Freak-compatible barrel parts. They're currently available in black gloss or dust.

AKALMP feedneck adapters
Posted on June 30, 2017
We just refilled our stock of feedneck adapters, including a new version which is compatible with AKALMP Vikings and Excaliburs. Adapters can be purchased from the threaded feedneck adapter store page anytime. Please note that AKALMP's type-3 anodizing is best matched by our dust finish feednecks, so be sure to choose dust if you are purchasing a feedneck at the same time!

AxePro custom body kits
Posted on June 16, 2017
It's body time again! Our new AxePro 2015+ upgrade body kits are ready to ship out. This first batch of bodies were made into three unique styles, depending on your preference: Swift AxePro, Pro Fireaxe, and the new Edge AxePro. Each new body comes with custom eye covers and is ready to use! Contact us if you wish to purchase a raw body for custom anodizing.

AxePro single trigger kits
Posted on March 5, 2017
We're now offering a complete single trigger conversion kit for all AxePro 2015+ markers. The upgrade package consists of a new trigger and guard, which is a clean drop-in changeover and requires no marker modifications. If you're looking to outfit your new AxePro marker with a classic old-school single trigger, this upgrade will deliver it perfectly.

Shocker LP bolt guide system
Posted on March 5, 2017
Our new low pressure volumizing bolt guides are back from anodizing and ready to ship! We've created three versions in total, depending on your preferences: Airsmith style with pressure gauge; Lobe style endcap; Rim style endcap. Each bolt guide uses the same LP shaft and ships with all required hardware, including two types of custom-made bumpers!

Expanded feedneck adapters
Posted on March 3, 2017
Several new versions of threaded feedneck adapters are now available. The adapters are marker-specific for FEP Quest, DM3 or GenE Matrix, Shocktech Shocker NXT, and Smart Parts Ion. Our Unilock feednecks are now available in silver gloss or dust finish.

AxePro VLP upgrade grip frames
Posted on February 3, 2017
Our newest upgrade grip frame is now available for the Empire AxePro 2015+ series of markers. This new frame is called the VLP grip frame because it includes a large low pressure internal air chamber that can boost velocity all by itself. Dust black is available right now; dust silver will come in a few weeks.

New threaded feedneck adapters unveiled
Posted on January 25, 2017
We're finally stocked up with all versions of our threaded feedneck adapter rings, which can be used to convert older markers toward using one of our Unilock latching feednecks. Multiple heights are available for many different thread specifications. Additionally, all our feedneck adapters have been consolidated onto a single store page, allowing an easy comparison between each version.

Expanded Unilock feedneck options now available
Posted on November 22, 2016
Players have been delivering suggestions and other info related to our specialized line of feednecks over the last year, so we've made some enhancements to the product lineup. First, a new low-profile feedneck housing is now available (dubbed the No-Rise Unilock) which is drastically shorter compared to most OEM feednecks. It's so short, in fact, that hoppers must be shortened to take advantage of the height change. The other update relates to a custom-machined thumbscrew that allows tool-free clamp adjustment. The thumbscrew is now a standard component on all feednecks from this point onward. Feednecks will be available in silver dust and silver gloss within a few weeks. (update: silver is now available!)

Drop-forwards and drop-backs for MiniGS and Axe Pro
Posted on November 22, 2015
As promised earlier, our new drop-forward and drop-back adapters are both available. These parts will fit both MiniGS and Axe Pro 2015+ since they both use the same bottomline ASA/regulator. Currently these are available in black and silver finish.

Axe Pro trigger guard and foregrip extender
Posted on October 10, 2015
We've recently unveiled our first couple upgrades for the Axe Pro marker, consisting of a new Pro foregrip extender and a giant trigger guard (we call it the Deep Guard). But wait there's more - we're also working on a new drop forward for the Axe Pro and Mini-GS, and a cool drop back adapter too. Those parts will be available within the next couple weeks in black and silver anodizing.

Fireaxe body availability
Posted on August 15, 2015
Earlier in the year we unveiled a total-custom Axe body project called Fireaxe. The bodies were finished up several months ago but we only just recently finalized the production batch to be ready for sale. If you'd like one of these bodies then you should try to grab one fairly quick, as they are extremely limited and we may never make any replacements!

Crossover drop forward updates
Posted on January 15, 2015
Happy new year! We recently completed our newest batch of drop forwards for the Tippmann Crossover and XVR markers, and took the time to make some subtle changes to the part appearance. Notably they now come in a black blast/dust finish to better match Tippmann's factory anodizing. Same proven design, just a better look. Check them out here: Crossover drop forward

Mini/Axe Fatgrips
Posted on December 4, 2014
We've released a new upgrade for Minis and Axes, a completely new foregrip using a new set of ergonomics. Currently this is only compatible with LED boards (Shockwave, etc), but we're working on possibly making one for Redlines in the future.

VLX frame for Empire MiniGS markers
Posted on November 13, 2014
Our new upgraded VLX frame for MiniGS markers is finally available! This new frame combines an integrated foregrip extender with a great set of ergonomics, and the practicality of a redesigned mounting system. Check it out here: MiniGS VLX frame

GoPro low-profile knobs
Posted on October 31, 2014
Our smaller knurled knobs are now available for GoPro camera mounts. The low-profile knobs have been seen in our promotional pictures for a few weeks and are now finally available. The knobs are compatible with any GoPro mount, but are specially suited for mounts that allow access to the knob's grip without it sticking out from the base of the camera. They feature an internal allen key hex and include the spare allen key (metric 2.5mm).

Website photo update
Posted on July 18, 2014
The website just got a facelift! We decided to decorate the bare pages with some great paintball scenes from action photographer James Graves. In other news, several new products for Mini-GS markers are in development and should be available within a few weeks.

Silver dust Axe parts
Posted on December 13, 2013
After many requests, we've followed through and added the color silver dust/blast to our inventory of Mini/Axe foregrip extenders and Axe VL frames.

Crossover drop forwards now available

The newest addition to our ever-expanding line of integrated drop forwards is a version for Tippmann Crossovers. Just in time for the release of the Crossover XVR! Go here for more information: Crossover drop forward.

Axe frames now available
Posted on September 27, 2013
It's been no secret that we were preparing a modified Axe version of our Mini-platform VL upgrade frames. That time has now come and our first batch of frames is now shipping! Currently they're available only in black blast/dust, but we will have additional colors ready in the coming weeks. The Axe frames cost slightly more since they require more raw material, but otherwise they bring all the same features to the marker, plus a few special enhancements built for the Axe platform.

International shipping cost changes
Posted on June 30, 2013
Recently we underwent a broad increase in the shipping/handling fee for items bought directly from the Nummech website. The postal prices here in the US have been steadily increasing over the past few months, and we just now caught everything up to date. The biggest change is for international shipping rates, including those to Canada. International priority mail is still available though the cost went up like everything else. Nummech's retailers may increase their postage costs too, so be sure to shop around!

Mini VL upgrade frame unveiled
Posted on June 14, 2013
Our newest upgrade for the Mini line of markers is a fully redesigned grip frame. The frames have been in testing for months now and are finally ready for widespread use. Find out more information about all the enhancements here: Mini VL frame.

Mini/Axe olive parts
Posted on May 20, 2013
We're currently in the process of adding green color (blasted/dust finish) to our list of available colors for Mini/Axe parts, in order to offer a matching item for the factory olive dust color. The restock parts are away at anodizing so they will be available once they return.

Mini/Axe hardware redesign
Posted on April 22, 2013
Over the past few months we've been working on a new mounting system to help take the guesswork out of the Mini/Axe mounting method. The new design uses a spring-loaded air connection to automatically seal with your existing tank adapter. We've received terrific feedback on the redesign, so the spring-loaded air connection will now be used on all our existing Mini/Axe drop forwards along with any future products that can share the same benefit.

Tippmann upgrades
Posted on October 12, 2012
We've been working on some new items for X7 Phenom markers lately, the first of which is now available. The most highly-requested part from X7 players is an ASA adapter with shutoff and bleed ability, and we're happy to provide a solution! Check it out here.

T-rail drop forward
Posted on August 25, 2012
A variant of our common drop forward design is now available for use with the Eclipse T-rail ASA systems (OOPS, POPS, etc). It can be used on both Eclipse and non-Eclipse markers. Find out more information: T-rail drop forward.

Camera accessories
Posted on August 10, 2012
We're excited to announce the release of the oft-requested protective lens covers that have been in development for many months. Our lens shields are the perfect solution for protecting the damage-prone camera lens components for paintball and just about any other harsh condition. In addition to these, we'll soon be releasing screw-attachment variations of our popular barrel mount, which will allow players to use a GoPro™, Drift™, Optrix™, and many other types of cameras to capture your game.

Availability update
Posted on June 11, 2012
Several color options have been unavailable for the past few weeks - the reason for this is we are undergoing a fairly major machine shop expansion and have bene unable to resupply any parts. Once the new equipment is up and running, all backorders will be delivered and future color choices will no longer be delayed. Thank you for your patience!

We've also expanded our color selection, although current colors are limited until we can make more.

Foregrip extender update
Posted on November 1, 2011
