Need some info

Scored this setup locally, need some info on value and other pertinent info. All I really know is it is a PMI Piranha and the tank is a 7oz. Thanks, now some gun pron.

Piranha SB-
Features: "Speed Demon bolt"-
"Delrin Pump"
"Rubber Grips"
Value?
Based on this condition I'd give it about $90.00.
The tank isn't too valuable, but the grips and bolt are. The barrel will be about .689" to .690", so it'll be difficult to use with today's paint. The direct feed port is 1", so most elbows won't fit either.

Personally, I love it.

Now, for a dumb question, how the hell do I adjust velocity? Oh and regarding the feedneck issue it came with a metal 45°elbow. An ammo box slides right into the elbow.

They are not velocity adjustable from the factory. To adjust velocity on a stock one you would have to mess with the springs, ie. uses stiffer one, softer one, cut one, shim one.
There are aftermarket items that make it adjustable with out changing springs, palmer's made a adjustable hammer, and there is a mod where you can put a adjustment screw on the asa, Walz used to offer this service.

Funny, I picked up a Piranha SB from SLC a few months ago. Mine didn't have the delrin pump handle or rubber grips though.

This was a local snag in Heber. The dude has a VM68 in pristine condition with original box as well. Wants $50 for it.

This isn't 100% accurate:

Look into the ASA. There may be two holes, one for the air passage, one for an allen key. Some of these were velocity adjustable from the factory.
If yours is a "two-holer", it's velocity adjustable.

Pretty good price for the VM.

If it is not adjustable Erasers tips off a pencil work great for shims it increase velocity. To decrease velocity [usually not the problem though] if there are no shims takes nipping off coils from the spring. You can also look for Cooper-T back bottle adapter they have velocity adjusting.
