Need Help Fast! Sheridan Brass Question!

I have a line on 2 of what look to be Sheridan K2's they don't have pumps on them but have the 14 round tubes on the side and the kurled bolt so they can be manually cocked.

The finish is off the wood but otherwise in good shape as is the brass. Bolts are stuck on both of them and they are "as is"

Now they look like KP2's to me since the wood on the stock doesn't go all the way to the end of the barrel and there is room to add a pump if someone wanted to but the owner swears that he bought them like that in the mid 80's brand new.

The other thing that I find odd is that they have what looks to be a rifle site on them and I even after removing the stock I cannot find any Sheridan markings on the brass whatsoever.

Need an answer as soon as I can before they disappear!

If they don't have any Sheridan markings, they probably aren't KP's. They could've been project guns that someone decided to make...? Are they polished? If they are, perhaps that was polished off?

Pics would really help in this case.

Here are some pics.

Someone tell me what these are, there is no real wear on bottom tubes leading me to believe that they never had pumps on them. But again no markings on either gun.

From what I'm seeing from your pictures, and I'm no expert, those look like very early model K1s. They may even be some form of prototypes or even part of the first run.

The barrels are much longer than a standard K1/K2. The stocks are standard F-series stocks and judging from that, the barrel/mag tubes appear to be around 6" longer than a standard K-series. From what I've read, this design was not very efficient and resulted in McMurray telling Sheridan that the barrels needed to be trimmed down in order for the marker to be practical, thus leading to the production length we are all familiar with.

Also, like you mentioned, the back of the bolts are knurled like the early PGs. K1/K2s had cocking knobs so that the bolts could be worked like a regular bolt action rifle.

Those are very early k-series. I have only ever seen one of those before. What is the guy asking for them? Those would definitely be worth snapping up, so long as he isn't asking some ridiculously high price.

I second this. You need to snatch these early K-series up as they are extremely rare - especially two of them in this type of condition. These guns are collectors items in every sense of the term. Impractical for play, and playing with them would likely bring down their value. You would have a hard time finding a collector on here that would not throw money at you for these two.

Picking them up today will give an update this afternoon. Not sure if they work or not I didn't have 12grams when I looked at them but I will be selling at least one of them.

That is a K. Check if it has room for two cartridges in the lower tube.

K manual

As for worth, more pictures would help. If you want to take more pictures, it would help us update vintage rex(thats how rare they are!)

Those are a find. As far as the markings, early guns didn't have any. If you look at the PGP evolution thread you'll see the similarities between these and the early PGs (ramped site, knurled bolt, no markings...etc)
