Difference between VM68 and PMI-III

Just wondering at the difference between the VM and the PMI-III (if any), and more to the point, the availability of replacement seals/parts and upgrades...

visions of somthing similar to Listessa's Long Barrel VM are dancing in my head...

There was no change when going from the PMI-3 to VM-68.

The name change was due to Sheridan getting sued during its battle with PMI.

So, late PMI3s are identical to early VM68s.

But, there were many changes during the PMI3 run simply do to tweaking of the design.

Most are left cocking only. The earlier ones have longer cocking slots, and seperate safeties. Plus aluminium side panels, and "purple" anno.

In general, I'd imagine that everythng is mostly compatable. Somewhere at www.vm68.com there is a good rundown of the smaller differences.
