Sanchez Machine has been creating and designing paintball products since the early 1990's. Luis Sanchez has manufactured products for companies such as WGP, System X, Angel Group, Taso and many other paintball companies. Our specialty is designing and manufacturing paintball barrels. In 1998 we designed and released the Stone Cold II barrel, Followed in 1999-2000 by the G3 & SM G3 Series. In 2002-2003 we designed the SM-1 Series barrel which includes the SM-1 three piece, the SM-1 single piece and the SM-III. The SM series is still one of our most popular barrels to date and has been defined by the pro paintball industry as one of the most accurate barrels on the market.
In 2006 Luis Sanchez has taken the Paintball barrel to the next level with the SM-1 Orbium Series barrels. Luis Sanchez has put all his years of experience into the design of the Orbium, and created a unique muzzle and porting design that not only increases the velocity but it also lowers the sound of your paintball marker. Because of the unique hole pattern and diameter of each port, this combination reduces pressure very evenly from behind the paintball as it exits the muzzle. The result is a straight flight pattern due to no turbulence and no spin on the paintball. The Orbium barrel will definitely increase the performance of your paintball marker.
Now in 2012 Luis is kicking it up to the next level - with the planned release of the Brotherhood Marker later this year - SM-1 is moving forward with a project that was years in the making. Thanks to the vision of Luis Sanchez and Peter Jung, the latest evolution of the SM-1 marker is now being tested and will be available soon. 2012 also welcomes the return of the SM-1-Orbium 3 with the new .677 and .679 backs for a full range of sizing options. Recognizing the changes to available high end paints, Luis has created new smaller bore sizes to meet the changing needs of our customers. Now available in both right-hand and left-hand threading for Autocockers, these new backs will fit today's smaller paint and even allow the use of Reballs through the Orbium system. Look out for exciting new paintball products soon to be released by SM-1 paintball products.
