WALZ "Gentleman's Weapon" (Freaked Sheridan dueling pistol)

GONE... but kept within the family.


Sigh... well, like a lot of us have, I'm hitting one of those ebbs where I can't dedicate that much time to paintball. I'm not quitting, but I'm going to pull back to my main shooter/minimal gear and clear out everything else. I love the hell out of this gun (so much that I made all my others match it) but it's not as practical as my Super Stocker...

Pics:










Specs:
- Custom built by WALZ
- Bolt action with lockout
- 12 gram-powered
- ~12 round capacity
- Lower internals are from a PGP 2, matching RVA
- Breakaway Freak-bored barrel
- Captured rotating feedplug
- Handmade stock, modified Sheridan trigger group
- Powdercoated silver vein with polished brass accents

Condition:
Mechanical: Seals up and shoots perfectly. Makes velocity with zero problems, erring on shooting a little hot IIRC. Easy enough to trim the spring if that's the case.
Aesthetics: Two blemishes of note. One is a scratch on the side of the barrel (I did play with this a bunch of times) that you can see here. The other is where the thumb screw you can see above used to be - the overlapping "patch" broke off at one point. It's not needed to hold the barrel on at all (the pressure fit is very tight) but the bare brass looked bad so I trimmed down the patch and attached it with a dab of glue. This is under the barrel and feedtube so it's tough to see anyhow - here it is with the barrel off and here it is installed.

Really?!? How many WALZ custom brass pieces are going to go on the market?

Always loved this little pistol, good luck selling.

It's a WALZ-out! Hide yo' wallets!

Thanks, and me too. Hopefully it finds a home where it's as appreciated as it was here.

If you ever decide to let the SS go let me know. Both are beautiful pieces of Paintball art.

Thanks for the kind words. I don't see it happening, but I didn't see this happening either so "never say never" I s'pose.

I am speechless. It's like WALZ is Enron and everybody is dumping stock like it's 2001.

Woah, let's be clear, that weren't no insult, it's irony. I can't fathom ever selling a WALZ.

And with that I shall stop crapping on your thread... GLWYS
