A Few SL-68 II Questions

Just bought an older SL-68 II and before it comes in I have a few questions hopefully some one on here can help me with.

1) How many shots should I expect out of a 12g?
2) Anyway to do some custom plumbing on these? I'd like to change up the airline and integrated ASA if possible.
3) Any other barrels besides a J&J? More specifically, does Lapco make a barrel for one?
4) Can the older SL-68 II's run off HPA?

Any help, info, links, or pictures are appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

1) Being that it's, basically, a nelson, well tuned could reach high 40's.
2) Time and money. No idea WHAT could be done, but I am sure there is something.
3) Celani Hittmann barrel from Titus on here
4) Yes.

Review of the HITTMANN Barrel by esteemed member and reviewer, Blackrain: Celanis Paintball HITTMANN Barrel

Make sure if you manually navigate back to Tippmann Parts, you select GEN 1 SL-68 II, some GEN 2 parts DO NOT work in the GEN 1.

Final Note: As the SL-68 II doesn't have 'threads', you may be able to have an airsmith "turn down" a barrel (check with said airsmith on dimensions of specific barrel) if it fits through the pump handle. The fee for this is probably a little more than Titus' barrel. If you have any other questions, just post up. Myself and a few other members, including Titus, LOVE SL-68 IIs. I am sure Titus will be along soon.

Thank you for all the help!

I am completely new to SL's or any other nelson based pump for that matter. I'm now assuming there isn't a simple 1/8th NPT air input, correct?

If you really wanna get into modding one of these... I have seen a really well done flat line barrel mod.

I find my sl's new old and the original sl run muh better off 900 psi input so get a ninja shop reg. Otherwise you'll be looking for REALLY big paint.

There could be. Like I said, custom is possible but costly. Maybe if you post up what you are thinking exactly I might be able to tell you off hand if it's possible but the cost is something you need to speak with a machinist about.

Basically I wanted to mount a 12g changer elsewhere on the marker and cut the integrated ASA off the grip, and all this mind you, without having to send it off to a machinist.

I wouldn't say I'm talented with tools (dremel/hacksaw), but with a little elbow grease I could do as much as cut up the body and run a new airline as long as the air fittings are commonly available. I just do not know what the airline looks like on these pumps.

I am 99.99% certain there is no 'airline'. The grip itself IS the airline. I think a tube is just cut into the grip handle to feed air.

That was what I was hoping not to hear. I appreciate the help and info. I'll see what I might be able to do myself and look into a machinist if I need too. Thanks again.

Thread the back nut for 1/8 npt but not all the way as this is where the spring sits.
Then put a cross hole into this hole.
Then drill another hole off center to let air into the valve.
You could also cap the current asa and the tap a side hole into the chamber with a 1/8 npt.
All this has been done before and there are pictures here. Just go looking for them.
It'll give you some good ideas.
