Never had a problem with receiving or shipping. It is just a bummer being the east coast and having to ship home.

I have had about 4 transactions with them and all have been smooth.

No, if you want a P68, you need to buy a P68 somewhere. PPS makes their own models, but can make one however you specify, so it can be close in configuration to a "P68". It will be quite a bit different than a stock Sheridan though, and cost a good deal more.

Check out the pump section of their catalog for the basic pump configurations they offer. Basically the breakdown is: the Houndstooth is direct feed and constant air, the Superstocker is of similiar dimensions but stock class configured, the Pug is stockclass but compact like a PGP. You can order variations on these. Nickel plate is standard but you can also get black zinc or any color powdercoat. Any of their markers come standard with other features a Sheridan does not like the quickstrip system and ball detents. Start reading the palmers section here or the POG forums and eventually you will understand.

Here is a Link to PPS brass guns.

Regarding your second question, PPS will also do customization on existing Sheridans, so you can actually get it back better than new if you go that route. Customized Sheridans are NOT the same as PPS scratch built guns, so don't start thinking that. I have seen a lot of people confused on that point, especially when trying to sell there customized Sheridans on ebay.

So they can nickel plate my Sheridan and make all the internals like new? If so, how much would this cost? Thanks in advance.

Yes. Best to call them for a price on service work. If you have a 12 gram powered Sheridan and will be having them take the guts out anyway, consider the performance tune (better efficiency, more shots per 12 gram). A ball detent and/or wedgits can come in handy with todays small paint as well. Its best to get all of the hot and cutting work you might want done at the same time or before you get the nickel plating done.
