Talking Double checking on a few guns I just picked up

So, found an ad on CL for a "SPYDER" well also listed was a Bushmaster SI PointMan and a "paintball shot gun". I quickly looked online and realized they were a PointMan and a KP3 (I think). Now I play pump but never been into older markers (shoot a sniper). So if you guys could give me any tips it would be great, I'm going to go check our the respective sub forums, but I know there are a lot of knowledgeable members that love to help here .

Couple questions, did all the KP's come with natural colored stocks? This one does look like it was dyed/painted so I'm assuming at one time it was natural color. Also, when converting them to constant air, did you have to drill the holes in the stock for the mounting brackets? On the bushmaster, is this a standard anno color? All the other pictures I've seen (not to many yet) they look black. Also, I think this barrel is longer then the stock PointMan barrel, he said he had others for it, but lost them

Well, here's the hardware:









Finally, anyone want to throw them a price as is, if they shoot well etc.?

Thanks for the help,
Bill

Never seen a blue pointman like that, and the barrel does not look like the stock/shorter ones that one normally seems to encounter on them. In any case, this is a GREAT gun. Super easy to maintain and it'll go forever.

You actually have a number of options for your sheridan. Most of the kp rifles I've seen have natural colored stocks, but I'm by no means an experience on them. Very well looks like it could have been dyed by a previous owner. Anyhow, post the questions on the kp in the sheridan forum in the armory and you'll get a bunch of very useful suggests on setting it up and/or maintenance.

Nice find btw

I don't know much about bushmasters but the kp is a kp3 that looks like it's been converted to shoot off 12ies. So the holes in the stock are left over from when it was in its original setup. If there are no holes it is possibly a kp2 stock. Also it appears as if someone stained the stock. They weren't offered that way from the factory. If it holds air and shoots, you might be able to get $300 for it but it will sit for a while. The market for kp's hasn't been great lately.

Actually, it does appear to be a KP3, the 2's typically had the lower tube about the same length as the barrel. Is there a cap on the lower tube?

Sorry for not getting back to you guys sooner. On the KP, I was thinking KP-3 because the lower tube is shorter, but there are NO holes in the stock for the constant air. I haven't fired it yet, I need to break it down and lube it a little, but I'm assuming it will fire off of 12 grams. When I picked it up, the buyer asked me if knew how to use it and when I loosened the cap for the 12 gram he said okay, you do lol.

Also plan on cleaning up the Bushmaster and playing some games with it. It certainly is a nice solid gun and seems like it will be fun to play at. However I really want to shine up the KP and take it out. Usually I'm the only one at the field with a pump (sniper) and they ask if it's a shot gun. I can only imagine what they will say when I show up with that hahaha.

Thanks for the help guys, I'll keep digging for info and check out the armory.

The KP will probably be worth more with its patina.
Not a lot of guys like their brass shiny. Too much work to maintain, I guess.

How does one deal with roll outs on a Sheridan?
Nail polish?

Yeah, by polish up, I mean lube it up and get it shooting nice and take it out. I was going to try the nail polish method on the KP and tape on the bushmaster since the barrel is removable.

The other method that is supposed to work well with sheridans is the fishing line trick. Some people have used o-rings as well. I have never used this method as the tape detents work great for me.


"Tongue" detent for Sheridan style guns
