The Ultimate Sheridan Base Setup?

Hey all,

Sitting at my PB work bench after a very good day of Paintball, with various Sheridan parts in front of me (most of which are to a work in progress), I start thinking about what would be the best setup for me rather then a "sentimental" setup.
A "best" setup being somthing that is truly practical or invitingly comfortable or a combination of the two, and sentimental being just that, sentimental

With that, I'd like to know what you guys think is the "best" setup/configuration for Sheridan based markers? Whether it's a singel shot PG or a full blown SxS, O/U Hurricane rifle. If its the one that you think is the overall choice for the "Best" Sheridan base marker then I'd like to know.

Anywho, thanks guys.

Bolt or lever action! Also a stainless steel barrel.

If you want to be as unpractical as humanly possible, sure.

To who? You, or the MCB folks?
To you then we couldn't know, to us then this thread is missing a poll but there are numerous of them already out there.

Otherwise, i'd second Mar.

How is that unpractical when it's been done before? There's SS KLs, SS KBAs, RTP Vipers in bolt and lever action as well. It all already exists.







You know what I think would be unpractical? A Titanium welded sheridan...but it sure as hell would be cool.

Impractical to use, not impossible to make. I'm well aware of their existance just as well as you are, we both browse the same forum dude.
The OP clearly stated he was going for as practical a possible as possible and bolt actions and stainless steel componants definitly do not count towards that.
However MAr pretty well nailed it.

Yes, I wouldn't say a Bolt action or Lever action "rifle" would be considered practical. I can see one of those being very fun to play with, but would you use one as your main marker for every type of game you play?

Maybe I myself am missing meaning of practical, I dont know. In my mind, a practical gun is one that is........

1. Naturally accurate. Meaning by design the marker is straight shoting, IE: Closed Bolt.

2. Quick to point. Meaning the ease of getting your target lined up quickly. I would say the weight, langth and ergonomics come into play.

3. Reliability. When you think of reliability, pump action may first come to mind. However, from what I've gathered, markers such as the Typhoon are very reliable do to less mechanical moving parts and more pneumatic parts.

Anywho, I just thought this would be an intresting topic.

Thanks.

Like the one in your avatar? Hmm, I can see that being very practical.
