Goodwill find - which Sheridan is this?

In a wild stroke of luck, I popped into a local Goodwill just now on half-off day and found this sitting on the top shelf in the back. I know it's a Sheridan, but I'm not sure which model. It came with this bottomline that looks hand-made, and the previous owner put a plug in the top tube and brazed on a 45 degree adapter for a hopper elbow. I dropped in a fresh 12 gram just to see what it does and it airs up without leaks and gets about 40 shots before dropping off. After that I put on the bottomline with my 13/3000 and Sportshot hopper and put a few drops of oil on the sticky parts and it feels amazing. It's ultra smooth and the trigger is extremely tactile. I'm planning on getting back into paintball this winter and just playing some recball for fun and this seems like it'll be a fun gun to bring out since it works. I played with a PGP way back in the day and always wanted one and this seems like a more practical model.

Couple questions:

Which Shieridan is this?
How is the velocity adjusted?
Is there a teardown guide anywhere? I don't want to mess it up.

Thanks!

It looks like a P68SC with a modified feed and set up for constant air. Velocity is adjusted via the knob on the back of the bolt.

It looks like a 68SC ... with a modified feed, constant air adapter and bottom line ASA adapter.

To my eye it looks like a PMI68 sc that has been modified with a constant air adapter and asa mount to support the asa. The 45 degree adapter is common when c/a is used. Velocity adjustment is the Allen key set screw in the lower tube (if it has one). You will need a Sheridan valve tool to remove the valve and you can get a rebuild kit from Palmers. A guide for rebuilding is in the Sheridan section of the armory.

Scottie the knob on the back of the bolt is for the release of the pump arm. The lower tube holds the hammer,spring, and valve.

Thanks so much guys! I wish the feed tube on top was still a stock class feed, but it seems like it'll be a fun rec ball machine!

The Speed Demon bolt is velocity adjustable so you don't have to go into the lower tube

Zidane that could easily be returned to stock class. Find an original lower tube CO2 plugand rod set, remove the bolt (and the internals when you are rebuilding it) and pack all the tubes with a heat sink paste. A little heat and the 45 would come off without damaging the marker. Then find a Palmers speed feed and you're in business.
