Awesome gun. I've not seen that one before. Sure would make a sweet shotgun project...

Now I'm puzzled. Mine's EXACTLY like that, and it's a Wildcat.

Whoa. Yep that's rare. What's the difference between this one and the wildcat?

Here's what the last Wildcat went for on eBay, but your value may vary depending on who's looking to buy, what time of year it is, and the price of tea in china.

Sorry for the late reply...

the AP-5 "is" the Wildcat. Mine has the exact same markings on it. It was only dubbed the "wildcat" as that is what it was called in the Action Pursuit Games magazine advertisement.

PUMA AP-5 Vs ?

Curious but not the same. Without actually looking at a side by side but from your pictures. The gun you have has grip assembly screws protruding mine are inset. There is a screw in the body over the designation number? The pump is longer and looks like it was added to from the original. Don't see the safety? C02 Plunger is missing.The rail that goes down the length of the upper loading barrel looks less pronounced. The guns stock is the Nightmare model no question. Which in no way is original and the actual factory grip panels are fiberglass and imprinted as PUMA. Not crazy about the cut out work on the loading barrel.

Here is what I think, when Puma Ent bellied up Aldo in Canada bought them out ended up with a few of these original guns and bastardized them into a semi Nightmare model with no name prior to actually coming out with the Nightmare. The gun you have in my opinion is not a stock PUMA AP-5 long barrel and definitely not altered at the actual PUMA Factory works. From a purist standpoint as a collector it should not be considered original in anyway. Its like a original Porsche with another engine, ruins the whole car no matter how pristine. Not to say your gun is not important to the history of the gun its just not what it looks like. In my opinion not a factory PUMA.
