Help Me Identify this marker
 
This is a Pump marker I got at a garage sale for $10. All I can tell you is it says LAPCO on the side. Here are some pictures.

Its very odd looking. The barrel is Really long compared to the marker. I think It may be an OLD Grey ghost or the predecessor to the Grey Ghost.
I need to know if the barrel is threaded or connected some other way. I tried turning it and it didn't turn, the guy also said it had been sitting for a long time so I think it may just need some more force.

Thank you

well certainly is interesting... how does it load paint... seems like it loads like a duckslide... whatever it is, $10 seems like a great deal for anything lapco...

Well I actually bought it for a friend. I'm going to send it out. Just very interesting and I want to learn about it.

ok well now i am questioning whether it actually is a lapco gun... doesn't look like anything that comes from them... only the lapco back end... the trigger frame looks like a WGP ranger frame... might be a mutt gun? Can we get more pictures of the feedneck (or lack thereof)

The Bear 05-22-2010 12:08 AM

This is a picture without the Pump Arm and "Feedneck"

weird... can we get one at the same angle but with the feedneck on (and not holding the pump back)

The Bear 05-22-2010 12:19 AM

That is with the bolt forward...Ill get a picture with the arm on.

ok well now i am even MORE confused... it is definately not a lapco (or it is a custom job) as it loads like a duck does, and i don't believe that any of lapco's guns did that... now can you just stick a hopper/10 round in that hole and it will stay? certainly is a puzzler... but AWESOME... i would so want to own it....

The Bear 05-22-2010 12:35 AM

I think I'm going to completely disassemble it before I put it back together to ship it out. Maybe some hints in there. No serial number though. That's what makes me feel like its a custom job or a mutt.
