Humungous grip! This must be some kind oŽrecord..
 
I stumbled upon a nice snag a while ago, a box oŽold stuff on a flea market in Gothenburg.

* Sterling, including stock barrel and a Armson barrel. Awful colorscheme,but whataheck...
* Two old hoppers and elbows, barrelswab and pod.
* A Vents Predator, with two sets of foam and a nice smoke lens.

Pricetag: 50 swedish crowns, appr. $8! SCORE! :clapping:

When i got it home, i aired up the Sterling. Constant leak through the barrel.
Teared it down, changed some o-rings and lubed it up.
Now it works like a charm!

To the funny part of the story;
Take a look at the grips on this puppy! :ROTFL:

It looks like it's carved from a giant potato.

*edit:
After looking at the logo on the hopper, it's clear they've killed an ent and carved grips from its corpse.

I have those same exact Vents Goggles hanging on my wall in my garage, they're from the early to mid 90's.
Good score though, ugly grips, but still a good score

I can only guess that this weapon belongs to an Astartes Warrior...

I'm having trouble remembering, but was the Sterling frame similar to the Benjamin Sheridan frame? If so, there have been aftermarket target grips made for pellet gun shooting... they may have been one of those sets or hand carved to be similar. Or maybe the owner wanted a pair of the Smart Grips but couldn't get them imported.

Very nice looking gun though!

I think more similar to the old cocker/mag type frames.

But I have to say that's an awesome deal for 8$. What sort of giants play paintball in your country, those grips are massive.

You found new item:"troll sniper grips" +50 to sniper skillz, + 5 to intimidation, -1 to endurance :gunsfiring:

You know what they say about guns with big grips...
