These guns are really hard to kill and they have very few internal components which are easily replaceable. Also didn't mention that in the rare case of a paint break they can be swabbed very easily with a rubber swab without having to strip anything from the gun, can't do that with a trracer/phantom.
Auch, as a manufacturing professional I wish they had just called it the "SL-68III" to begin with. Freakin' "new A-5," or the "new SL-68II," just add a Roman numeral so I can track it with a syllable or two.

Yeah I hear ya, but to be fair the re-release didn't really stand apart from the original....SL68 2.5?

The receiver and pump handle were the only changes to the design and hardly affected performance or style points. Oh, but I did forget that the feedneck was updated to accept modern hoppers, so it does have that going for it.

Sorry OP for the thread-jack. Back to Nelson guns, the Lapco Grey Ghost is an oft overlooked, but solid performer if you are OK with center feed. The vintage GG's had right side feeds however.
