My feelings on the subject.

Sheridans are kinds like kinda like pinup girls. They look great anywhere, and with enough money they really do perform, they are great for a little fun, but most of them are just aren't keepers.

Hmm, I'm trying to decide whether or not to Sig that.^^^

Well, truth be told fellas, I do beleave I've already had a "Nelson like" experience. I've owned 2 SL-68's (# 1 & 2) and actuly liked them very much. Very smooth, quick and stupid simple to clean/take apart. BUt, being Tippmanns, I was never able to "really" tinker with them. And thats one of the reasons I'm taking intrest in Nelsons, so I can tinker, so I can tune and make better. Heck, I'd actuly like to take a whack at making one.

So what do you think I should pick up? A stright up Nel-spot? What would be cheaper that's just as good to copy?

Thanks all.

Ti

There are a few Rangers in nice shape floating around the BST right now, I think Splatttttt has one up. The nice thing about them is that they are cocker threaded, IIRC a downside for tinkering is that they use a different thread on the valve nut than most Nelsons, not that that is something you are likely to change out anyway, but it's worth noteing.

There are several very informative threads in the Armory about specs on different Nelsons that you should check out before buying.

I love Nelsons.

If you are a die-hard Sheridan guy getting something like a Phantom will probably leave you less than impressed (despite my own love for them). I would recommend a newer (or older) Ghost, Ranger, or a Bushmaster. Failing that, there is a multitude of Lapco/TASO/Line SI and their clones that can be had for a song.

I think a Bushmaster with some form of roll-out system would be among the finest Nelson guns out there. They have fantastic pump strokes and shoot great.

I have found very few Nelson based markers satisfying at all. They just seem to be "lacking". I like the RACK of a Sheridan. I like the weight of it. I pick up a Phantom and it seems too much like a kids toy. I have some old SL68's that I love. I don't mind the Ranger. I just can't get myself to really enjoy Nelson markers.

Bret G's take on it says a lot

I personally find it depends on what style you are playing.

IMO, nelson are fantastic for stock class and sheridans are great for open class/other applications.

nothing wrong with haveing both.

The last game I played with my Kp and wore the nelspot on my hip. But As in every game I made it a point to shot my side arm.

sheridans make nice stock class too (my PGP for example, currently my fav SC). I'm pretty sure my PGP is going to be very displaced by my new R7 though... the PGP sometimes blows up paint in the barrel, and I would like to get 3 tubes of paint out of a 12 gram. nelsons are just a little bit better at 12 gram efficiency (they were born for it).

as for open class... I use my OC phantom all the time (its my favorite backup gun, besides my Illusion which is always in use by Erin). the custom heavy pump handle is really what makes it work though, it would feel too light without it to use a hopper. most of the time, a sheridan type is going to feel better for open class for sure.

Thanks guys.
