It's an Piranha LB. Upgrades:
AT kit
Battle Grips
Trigger shoe
Site rail

I'm not sure what that bolt(?) on the front end is for or what those extra notches in the pump are for.

Ditto, I was watching that, and I'm glad to see it go to a good home.

It won't be a factory 68 Magnum unless it was a transitional piece (there were plenty of those). THe Factory Magnum's had a slip on feed/sight rail... yours has a factory fixed Direct Feed that was found on the Piranha LB.

As to the grip frame.. those are just the grip panels themselves that are non standard. The Piranha's came with wood grips, rather that the smooth plastic grips found on pgp's and other Sheridans. The grips on yours are rubber and were produced by Hogue under a contract (and I can't remember who the contract was with.. maybe it was PMI).

I do like the way that squeegee is setup so it won't just fall out the front of the lower tube!
