Annihilator?





Can anyone confirm who made this?

I'm getting it in a trade, looks like an Annihilator but doesn't have the Mac1/McMurray and Sons signature quick strip slot. Seller (Tx_Aggie) thinks it may be a PPS conversion?

Also what do you think this would sell for if I decide to part with it?

Here's a pic without the pump handle (it has a PGP bottom tube):

I'm guessing, but I'd say that's a MacMurray, based on the length and angle of the direct feed port, the fact that it was built on a PGP. I'd say it was a late version, and the use of the Speed Demon bolt would eliminate the need for a field-strip notch due to the fact that the cocking lug is spring-loaded on these bolts. The routing and location of the gas supply is another MacMurray style set up.
It's gorgeous.

Interesting also that it's left-feed.

Wasn't there also a fellow making copies of these on the side?

The Marauder was an Annihilator knock off. The couple things that keep me from saying Mac1 are the bolt and the site slot cut in the direct feed. The large direct feed, the sight rail, and built from a PGP make me think Mac1, but didn't they put custom barrels with custom bolts on their guns? Also, I don't recall mine have the slot cut in the DF for the bead sight.

Not much help, I know.

I know that the D/F nipples offered as an 'aftermarket' part by Sheridan had the slot, but this one isn't the same length, it's longer like the MacMurray, and the AGD frame throws another wrench in the mix, but MacMurray & Son was a 'custom' builder, so I'm sure you could get an AGD frame if you wanted it.

The AGD frame is one that I bought from Bacci and then added to this gun to clean up the constant air setup. The gun originally came with a standard sheridan frame.

I was wrong. I dug up a picture I had of my Annihilator. It does have the slot on the DF. I am going to go with nickle plated Mac1.

Without a stamp on the sight rail I'm thinking it is a McMurray custom built with intention of using a speed demon bolt just because of the way the feed looks and the direct air mod. Any guesses on market value?
