Quick Stand
by Bill Mills

Custom Cylinders background in machining super smooth cylinders for pneumatic and hydraulic applications got them into paintball with their line of Slayer barrels.  Looking for a way to professionally display their products at trade shows, they developed the Quick Stand.

The quick stand is a super-sturdy steel paintgun stand.  It is designed to be used in the home, paintball store or field.  For stores, it presents a very professional looking way to display a paintgun on a counter.  It does the same for a home.  Because it folds nearly flat, it can also be used in a staging area as a place to set guns while doing tech work or between games, rather than just tossing them in a gear bag.

The base of the stand is a pair of rails designed to cradle a CO2 or HPA tank.  Folding up from one end is an adjustable barrel brace.  This brace has a simple locking lever so that it can extend or contract, and a machined cradle lined with soft felt gently centers and holds the paintgunís barrel.  A hook and loop cloth strap can also be used to hold the paintgunís CO2 or compressed air tank down to the standís rails.  This is a plus for stores to discourage customers from picking up the paintgun from the display without assistance from a sales person.  

The swing up arm, which braces the paintgunís barrel is multifunctional.  Different accessory tips are available to mount objects, and additional swing up arms are available as well.  A barrel plug tip means that barrels can be stored mounted on accessory arms.  Another tip, with male ASA threads means that the single gun rack can hold a display of four, or even eight paintguns mounted by their bottom line adapters.  This too, is another store display oriented feature.

The Quick Stand is solidly and professionally built.  The materials finish, and plastic leg pads give the Quick Stand a clean, elegant look.  It sells for about $60, with accessory adapters like the ASA and barrel adapters coming in at $6 and $12 respectively.
