What is the difference between the KP and the PGP?

What is the difference between the KP series and the PGP? Obviously the KP is in a wood stock but besides that what is the difference?

The lower tube where the hammer rides is longer on a k-series. The hammer is longer and some prefer the slightly softer stroke of a k-series and some prefer it for tuning. I have not noticed much difference except that the longer lower tube of the k-series is better for a rifle build.

Are you asking about internal differences? Because from that standpoint, they're the same. Like mentioned the hammer travels farther on a KP and so has a longer main spring.

K series have longer lower tubes and barrels too obviously than a PGP.

Also there is no nutsert on a K -series....it's a Pringle screw. So it seats differently. You can't just drop a PGP in a K series stock and have it seat right. There are several posts about taking a P series and wood stocking it to a KPGP or so forth....if that's what you're looking for.

So KPs are rimfire, like the PGP?
I thought they were centerfire like the other larger Sheridans.

They are centerfire. But in regards to the valve, only the hammer is different.

The trigger group is different, too, right? I've only owned pistols myself, but the KP images I've seen on here are very different. If nothing else, the trigger itself is longer for the additional space to pass through the wooden stock.

Also, some (all?) have those rocker safety mechanisms.

Along with the lower tube, the upper tube is longer as well, with a longer bolt (even longer than standard/PMI bolts, I'm pretty sure).

Ok I guess there are a few points that are different. I've been dealing with them for so long I don't give them a second thought.

-longer bottom tube for bigger hammer/longer pump stroke
-trigger group(two types of safeties, rocker and less common push safety most common on late model kp3's)
-longer centerfire bolt
-longer barrel

But the valve is still a standard sheridan non-cartridge valve.
