my latest pawnshop run

check this out i got it at my local pawnshop, it has some rust but just around the screws and the Asa. I dry fired it at the pawnshop and it fires and i didn't hear any leaks and it has some scrathes from being used but overall i'm guessing its a pretty good find.

i forgot i got it for $17

It depends how much you payed. Vm68's are cool guns but not overly valuable.

I remember the first time I tried to play a game with one of those beasts. I was transitioning from my personal Nelspot and wanted my next gun to be semi-automatic.

Two kids had semis on this day, one was like yours and the other was a Tippmann .68 Special. I tried them both, with the PMI/Sheridan first.

My overall impression of the PMI/Sheridan was that, although a lovely shooter, I could not seem to make this 75lb paintball marker hit anything or even point in the correct direction half the time with my spindly teenaged arms.

Needless to say, the Tippmann 68 Special felt like walking around the woods with a pencil compared with the VM, and it shot about as well, so that is what I bought.

Pawn shops around here have Model 98's for $400

Congrats! Is that a homemade porting job on a stock barrel?

Nice find! I've been meaning to hit some pawn shops around my house too. There are some deals waiting for me, I know it...

Sketchy. If its within a 30 mile radius of bangor or sidney don't bother looking.

Though its been a two weeks since Bangor and one since Sidney.

Edit: To keep on topic.

Nice find! Always thought VM's were cool, and you stole that one just about!
