Not ptp vmx. But the link with custom vm68 has a couple that look close like the punisher customs milled body one. And kinda like the Dave youngblood custom carter job. Will have pics up today.

When Dan Debone worked at Palmers, he did all the VM68 work, and it does look like his work. He did one for me, and a few friends had theirs done as well.

Though its pretty much the "standard" mill job from the 90s. Shave the sides, chop the front, etc. Definitely not Carter. He always adds mills and grooves.

Note: It also does look like the VM68 Procomp. In that case, you would also see all custom internals.

Regardless, a good find. Still tons of VM68 parts floating around. They made gazillions of them in the 90s.

Found in a box at my dads in new bern, north carolina. So custom Palmer vm68 magnum? I didn't take it all apart but it does have a blue piston inside. So it might be built. Value ? Then? Now?

My dad played some back in the day. He's passed on now so I can't ask but his name was steven Carter . So I don't know if it's a custom or a favor or ???

Its not a VM-Magnum. Those had a side-tap for a rear ASA. This one was originally a VM-EXC. Both had ambi-feeds.

It does have the rare PTP powerfeed. Those were made before the ambi-feeds, so I don't know if its reversable, but if you're right-handed, you will want to (otherwise the hopper will always be in your face). Maybe flip the detent?

The bolt is an aftermarket venturi. A typical add-on.

Value on custom guns is subjective, but if it works you could probobly get $100 for it. If you can confirm if it was Dan Debone (Palmer), or whomever did the work, that may increase the value.

Note: Dan Debone no longer works at Palmers. He was fired way back in 1996 over a nasty dispute. But if its his work, it would date the gun from around 1994-96 (Early VM-EXC, Late Debone)

Who knows. Its lovely though. Its a stacked tube, but looks nothing like all the modern spyders, derivatives. I love how it looks. The side plates are custom too, though they don't seem to fit? thats probobly the only flaw. Otherwise its really nice.
