MacDev was established in 1969 in Sydney, Australia. Since that time, MacDev engineers have been working in the fields of pneumatics, hydraulics and engineering consultancy. In the mid 90's, MacDev engineers designed and manufactured the worlds first all aluminium bodied paintball air system, and continued on today by manufacturing markers, barrels, air systems, accessories and clothing for the paintball industry. In 2003, MacDev created the Cyborg electronic range of markers, releasing subsequent models in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. In 2007, MacDev created the Droid marker - revolutionising the expectations of spool valve driven paintball markers. This revolution continues with the release of the Clone marker in 2009.
