It came from Drum's VAULT - Vintage PPS K2 FS
Yes; floating this rare and unique sweety upon the docks of sale.
This is a fine vintage Palmerized K2, brought "up-to-date" in the late 1980's by none other than Mr. Glenn Palmer himself.
It was an Winter Solstice present from my old pal, Al a few years back and it is among my treasured possessions.
Why am I selling? Well, I am not exactly sure myself. It does not and will not get much use from me because of my undying fondness for the products of one, BretG. I don't see that changing any time soon, much to my abject joy. I would give this one back to Alphonso if he had not turned his back on paintball. So his loss might well be your gain.
Here are the specs;
This one was born a K2 (B06873) and upgraded by Palmerizing with a pump, custom pump arm, QuickSilver 12g changer w/cut out, muzzle brake, PPS sight rail and shortened stock. The finish is a black/grey muffler paint that Glenn used before he settled on nickel plating as his favorite paintgun finish. The paint has flaked in a few places but I would rate it at least 90% complete. The stock has scratches and dings appropriate to a paintgun that has seen field service. It still retains most of the original factory finish and it would clean up beautifully with a strip, sand and refinish. I never did b/c I like the way it looks in original form.
The QuickSilver is working perfectly as it very recently tuned up by the Man himself, in my very own attic! You don't believe me?
Well, here's a pic!
So now... if you've read this far, I know you must be purely salivating for that one bit of info about this gun that you lack... THE PRICE!
Well, I want $555 US (shipped) or she goes back into the vault. Still interested?
I can take more (better) pics if need be, but I will also guarantee "money-back" satisfaction.
PM me with any questions or offers. I am always open to some dickering and unique (non-WGP) trades may get my attention. I am not desperately in need of cash, I just want this little honey to see a little light and air and the vault is so dry....
Thanks for looking.

Of course those pictures were "doctored".... by your very own "Dr.um"!
As for Al, not sure he's gone as I haven't spoken to him for about a month or so, but he's out of the sport. Last I heard, he was contemplating an Alaskan retreat.
I will leave this up for another couple of days, as my dear girl does not like the cold and damp of the world outside the vault.
She's getting lonely for her friends...

Ok, I give. I'll throw out a "most likely to be shot down " offer.
I know you said no WGP....
1) WGP AutoTrracer with the ACI ss bolt
2) Your old Lapco Grey Spirit (just cleaned and lubed with only 15 balls through it since I traded for it from you)
3) $75 money order (that's all I'll have left to spend after shipping costs)
If that doesn't work...well I'll first have to find out if you want another pellet rifle from me. Interested in Benjamin Franklin pellet rifles?

Thanks for the kind offers, here and via PM, guys, but this one is sold to one of our own.
I will bet that most of you will be able to guess whom it was, but that is all the hint you will get from me.
Thanks to all who looked.
(Now--- where is that DAM UPS driver with my new M1A1 Thompson?!? Grrrrrrrr!)
