Two old pumps.. which one?

I’m trading my Apex barrel for 1 or 2 pumps. One is an old Sheridan the other is an old Piranha
The Piranha has an auto trigger.

The other one I might get would be on this page, it’s the not the first one but the second one with a stock from the top. It has the stock and a CA adaptor from the front. This caption is right above it.
“MID 1980s Silencers start to appear, home made silencers from PVC tube really worked. Eventually companies started to build and sell silencers as well, but the home made worked just as well. The paintball sniper is truly born! (See Mid 1990s for ATF's word on silencers”

If both are in great shape and I only get to pick one, which one should I go for?

As far as pure useability I would say go with the Piranha.

The Sheridan has some nice features though that may be more collectable.

it's hard to say which one to get without seeing pics of the actual guns themselves.

as far as performance goes, there isn't much difference if any, in the two guns you pictured.

i'd say take the nicer of the two.

post pics of the actual guns if you can, and that will help us say which may be the better one to go with.

I would definately choose the piranha for usability..the parts on the second one may make it worth a bit more, but not a whole lot.
