Is this thing worth rebuilding or just hang it on the wall for memories? I used it back in the early 90s when I started paintballing.

You can get what you need at Palmers Pursuit. Sheridan's are pretty particular with HPA. They love the CO2.
Also FYI....this is a P68-AT. That little box between the trigger frame and the body is an Auto Trigger unit. Be VERY CAREFUL if you're going to take it off. The pieces need to be just so when you put it back together.

Thanks Long Beard. I know it had the auto trigger but Ive never taken this thing apart. Like I said I used it back in high school and have moved a few times and recently stumbled across it. The trigger is frozen up so I guess I'll learn alot about when I start tearing it down.

O ring and Dyna stem kit from Palmers when you order a valve tool. Carefully disassemble it and take pictures as you go to help with reassembly. Painted parts like the asa and connector can be stripped and repainted. Look for signs of cracking in the pump handle where it attaches to the a/t. Can it be saved.... hell yea!

Before buying any parts I would put a drop of oil in the asa and gas it up, once the have seat get lubed it might not leack at all ...
The dyna valve will increase your efficiency, but you might not care too much if you have a tank.
Co2 works great on those ...

I wanted to throw in my two cents:
1) it looks to be in great shape.
2) I would blast the valve with a little WD40 before airing it up. I know this offends everyone, but a penetrating oil may be the way to go with seals that have sat for a long period of time, to avoid tearing. My buddy put away his Sniper 3 for 20 years or so, he only ever used WD40. Took it out, and it still chronoed perfectly. Afterwards though I recommend regular oil.
3) In my case I have removed the AT component completely.
4) The PMI rubber grips are worth $30 or so, just the grips. They are great, hold onto them.
Let us know if you picked up a valve tool, and where you are at!
