WTT my KP2 for KP3

SOLD here: Sheridan KP2 for sale

I picked up a KP2 a few weeks back and finally got around to playing with it this past weekend. I really like it's self-contained design and the pure historical coolness of owning one. I got a good deal on it and figured I give it a try; but, playing with a stock class gun is just not my style at all and I found it to be a little awkward. I like the feel of the KP2, but not the feed tube and 12 gram changing. So, now I'm looking for a KP3..


I'm looking for a KP3 in good mechanical working order. I'd be willing to trade my KP2 for it if the KP3 is relatively stock and in good shape.



I hand polished the internals and the marker shoots/pumps butter smooth. Here are some pictures of my KP2 (I did start a thread about it a couple weeks back):

The PO did drill a 1/4'ish hole through the front of the stock and into the lower gas tube. I'm assuming he did this to run a dummy 12 gram. The hole does act as a vent for changing out 12 grams, so it does serve a function and would be completely covered by a new stock.

I picked up a replacement Sheridan air rifle stock to replace the stock one that has the hole drilled through it. This replacement stock is completely new and unfinished (it has never been mounted). It is ready to be sanded, prepped, and stained/oiled. The stock will need to be notched in two places: 1) for the safety 2) the sear cut needs to be lengthened about 1/2" to accommodate for the KP2's longer sear. The bolt hole will also need to be counter sunk if the stock anchor bolt is used. All of this could easily be done with a steady hand and a Dremel. The stock is slightly longer than the stock Sheridan one. The longer length makes it feel more like a regular rifle (which, to me, feels a lot more natural). This stock has a beautiful grain and will look amazing when it's finished (I really wish I had the time to do it). The stock would be included in the trade.

I planned on making this KP2 my spring project (mainly refinished the new stock). But my unit is deploying again soon and I it looks like time for tinkering will be hard to find.. I'd like to pass this along to someone who has the time to refurbish and restore it.

You can post or PM me with any offers. The first KP3 I like gets the trade. If I can't work out a trade, then I'll end up selling this marker (I figured I would try a straight swap to cut out the Paypal middle man and save me some time). Thanks guys,

Wish my KP3 was in a little better shape or I'd offer it, but it needs a bit of loving to get back into shape. I'm the opposite of you, I think I'd prefer a stock class KP2 over my KP3.
