Have any of you heard of it, It is a very old pump gun that I acquired recently, but I am not sure how old it really is. :p Anyone know?

I've never actually heard of that marker before. Might be something from like the middle/late eighties. Was it in good condition for that matter?

it is in excellent condition, I plan on playing around with it when I have some C02. (would run air, but I think I will just use the 7oz bottle of C02 it came with)

I was just wondering how much of an antique this thing is. :p

It was a nelson-style pump made by TASO from around 1988 to 1995. It was considered "high quality", and popular as rentals in the early 90s.

You can find pictures and info on them at mcarterbrown.com and vintagerex.com

Taso Spartan

I bought one new in 1989. Filed the firing pin so I could hold the trigger down and just keep pumping.
I also polished the air valve with fine emery cloth and went from 25 shots per co2 cartridge to over 50. The feature I liked was being able to change the springs to change firing speeds along with the allen screw down the barrel that was "dial a speed". The springs I had in it backed all the way off fired at 226 feet per second. After about 20 minutes of play, it changed to 400 fps (owe)! It also shot very straight. You had to allow for about a 6" drop at about 80 feet. I sold it a few years ago.
