Let's not forget any 'cocker or Sniper clone is also a Sheridan at the core, so anything is possible.

Brass Doesn't pit like aluminum or Rust like steel. It's the ideal Paintball Gun material!

What are the benefits of using old cars instead of new ones? What's the Benefit of typing on a typewriter/writing by hand instead of using a computer? What's the benefit from using film cameras instead of digital?

It's just what you enjoy I suppose. I played with a kP2 some time ago and it was a really nice, fun marker. Would I buy one over say, a CCM or Carter? Probably not. But it's what makes some people happy.

You saw my stocked Piranha LB at our last game. Personally, I love the ergonomics of that thing enough to look past the fact that its pump stroke is heavier than a CCM (pretty damn slick for a Sheridan though) and it's oldschool AT can't even begin to compete. On the flipside, it's damned sure to deliver a ball when I pull the trigger... sometimes two or more if I forget and pump it again.

My grimy 2 pence.

I haven't found one yet, if anyone have one, I would really love to try the pump stroke, because if there is a sheridan with a pump stroke that is as smooth as my T6.5, I would like to know how it is done (so i can get it done on the micartar)

in the end it is simply what we feel most comfortable with.

if the by the book stats of the guns were all we were interested in, we'd all be shooting dm's, g6r's, luxes, and ego's. as those are seen to be the summit of modern paintball development.

Ive got one or two of those, and I can tell you that I like shooting my old beater pump 1000 times more. If all i was allowed to play with was the newest and greatest thing, i would be off shooting trap alot more, cause i get into my little happy place, when im a pumping.

Every shot from my ancient BE Golden Eagle feels like an event, and due to its size, weight, long sighting plane and consistancy, will probably hit its intended target/victim if I do my part. None of my more modern guns, pump or semi, has a better kill ratio. It's huge, heavy, loud, and incredibly inefficient, but is SO satisfying and fun to use.

I think that some of the Old School technology is still popular because of its ruggedness & simplicity. Fact is - brass is tough to break. These old markers are still around because no one can kill them. They have simple, easy to understand parts made from solid materials. Solid welding, thick metal, large fasteners, these markers are built to last...

I have owned several old Sheridan brass markers - PMI 2 & KP2 - & nothing else out there is quite like them...
They are cool for the same reason that P-51 Mustangs are still cool - they represent technology of their era.
