Those guns were known as an air hog. They challenged the 68special for supreme air hog status, and won.

I had a friend who built his three tank VM68 with two 3.5ozers up front. The look was milsim-ish and he built a bracket off the front ASA so that the two 3.5s formed a bipod in the front. They could fold up when not deployed.

Sorry, no pics

I think bored383 has an outrageous VM set up.

Did VMs ever come in any caliber other than .68, or was the industry on the standard by then?

Yes.

It was quite common to have dual air tanks. note that her example has on/off valves. My VM back in 1993ish had not only an expansion chamber under the barrel but a vertical and rear bottle, 12oz and 20oz respectfully. Yes, it was an unbelievable air hog.

I caught a few people with the on/off set up though...it would "machine gun" when the 20 ran out, people would assume I was out of air and advance, meanwhile I was shutting off one tank and turning on the other...

While many guns in the early 90s had dual tank setups, the reason was more so that you could run a single tank in the position of your choice. (ie vert, back bottle, bottomline, hawaiian, etc)

But the Magnum was a little odd that they sold it with that 3oz forward tank. Honestly, what good is a 3oz tank going to do on a VM?

Expansion chamber!
I have a VM that I use a single 3.5 with a vertical mount. It works great, but I swap tanks like magazines too.

Hey, I have a BB gun just like #57 in the photo, but in really trashy condition! Still works though.
