KP2 CA back to 12g's?

I just picked up a KP-2 last week and it was modded for CA. It was drilled and tapped into the body and then the brass tube inside was drilled.

I want to turn it back to use 12g and the only thing I could think of is just taking it apart and replacing the brass drilled tube with a stock one.

The other thing I'm stuck with is this CA setup. There's a fitting in the body that was wielded but broke off. This fitting is connected to another one but the stock is sandwiched in between. I broke the wield when trying to take it all apart.

From the location it looks to be drilled directly into the valve. Depending on how they did it, might be possible to just put a plug in there.

If that screw just spins around, best bet would be to just drill the head off.

Converting to 12 grams is the easy part. Getting more than 10 shots off a 12 gram is the real work. Your gun has a really nice playable setup...don't convert it unless you can deal with either doing a full valve job, or living with KP efficiency.

Anyone know what springs I can use? What's a full valve job? I tinker for fun. This is my first Sheridan and will probably collecting more too.

mighty nice k2, wouldn't be hard to go back to bolt action, and for a change no one cut the stock class feed off. i agree, shouldn't be hard to go back to 12vie's, need a valve tool, gut it, sweat out the c/a fitting, reassemble and plug the bottom tap... only other thing to worry about is what they used to plug the front...

I was thinking the same and cut the fitting. Also its just an old 12g in it. I'm getting bottom tube inners soon for replacement.
