Well I did something on a lark and now realize I need help! (building a p68)

So I recently bought a factory new p68 body on ebay.

I was excited as heck about it. Now I realise that I have no idea where to start with building this into a functioning marker.

I really shouldn't ebay on late nights at work.

Help please.

What kind of p68 is it? Is it a P68sc or a 68 magnum? Do you know what type of valve it is? Pics would help.

If it truly is "factory new," you may not need to do anything, but usual brass Sheridan fixes/upgrades include:

1. Seals replaced
2. Rear velocity adjuster (12 gram guns)
3. Fasst changer (12 gram guns)
4. Valve tune
5. Wedgits (controlled dents in the barrel to stop rollouts)
6. Universal mounting bracket for stock and/or ASA
7. Full WALZ overhaul (not recommended for guns with pristine finishes)

It is the sc and it is just a body. Nothing in it at all.

Check out bacci's site for hard parts (Sheridan - Pump Parts - Parts), you can try palmers too but they are quite a bit more expensive. For seals contact mad on this site.

Instead of trying to find the individual parts, look for a beater / cheap gun with the parts you need. A PGP would have most parts except you'd need a different bolt and longer pump arm and a rod to extend the 12g plug. That's assuming it's a SC. If it's a direct feed / back bottle gun the parts are slightly different.

Thanks. I already have a stock pmi 1 that is in good used/usable condition. What I was hoping for with this was to build something that would be a bit more special. I want to end up with a nice functional bit of brass that is spring fed and runs on a 13/3000 or 22/3000.

But I know 0 about teching sheridens. I have owned several and have never had to do more than a simple lube and clean on one. I got them used often after years of storage and they have all worked flawlessly until I sold, traded, or gave them away.

I guess what I should really do is build the p68sc as original with my pmi1 parts and tinker with the worn body, but I really enjoy the pmi1 as it is.

Walz I sorta want to do it on the cheap and on my own. Though looking at some things on here you are credited with and the maresleg thread above. I am tempted.
