At first I thought it was a C3, then realized that it was a CO2 tank and not a pump handle.

I have no idea what it is.

That's a PMI-3

Basically, it's a huge version of the Spyder, that came out before the Spyder came out. I used one from about 1991 till about 1994. They retailed for about $400, and are incredibly heavy

I don't think that's a VM-68, the VM-68 had a hose that went into the body and into the back. You used to be able to run both a back bottle, and a front bottle

I think that's a PMI-3 without the silver splash anno that went down the side.

I had to explain this differently lol.
PMI distrubited all the Sheridan projects before '92. The product at the time was called PMI. The name changed happened do the issues between both companies and Sheridan developing a slightly upgraded PMI, calling it the VM-68. It shared the same base model all the way and most of the changes were internal.


The first picture you posted mike is not a PMI-3, it is a VM68-Magnum.

The second picture is a Early pmi3 model, do to the separate safety knob and locking cocking slot.

The ops picture is an later model VM68, due to its complete black anodizing and shorter Cocking slot.

My friend used his as a hammer when he first moved out. Worked great for it to.

Yup VM68. Great guns. Almost nothing goes wrong with them. The worst thing is getting new orings for them...the only place that I know of that makes them is Palmers. $30 for a rebuild kit....but it will last you another 5+ years easy.

If you haven't ever fired one, do it. The sound, the feel....the bolt alone weighs almost a lbs. There is a reason why they were able to hook it up to an industrial tank of C02 and shot it until it was basically encased in ice....and it kept firing.

Better yet. Buy one! They aren't expensive. Around $40-100 depending on the deal you score and the condition it is in. It is the marker that you can always trust as a back up, no matter what.

Vm's are the only marker I have ever used that have noticeable recoil. Here's a picture of mine, when ever I use it it belches smoke and frost and fills the air with its cannon like retort. There is a sub forum on MCB if you are actually looking at getting one, Some of them are really cool!

They kinda are, the Vm 68 only became to be VM 68 when Sheridan had a falling out with PMI and had to rename it. In the process he also made a few minor internal upgrades over the old PMI models.

The herpes bulb could also double as a hopper that blends your paint as it enters the feedneck... And it would be more useful.

Yeah, they are a ton of fun and will work EVERY TIME. They are heavy and loud though, mine is almost as loud as my KP3!

I stuck a q loader on mine to make it a little smaller, I want to get a new barrel and a loudner on it too.

Atrocity? I think not! Why are new makers today worth $1000+?, New technology that's why.

And that was $400 back in the early 90's. And it was hardly an atrocity. It was the muscle car of the early 90's. A lot of people were still playing with only pumps....this gun changed a lot of things in terms of firepower. The first time people heard how loud this thing was and how much paint it could put out vs a pump, they would hide. It was an intimidation factor. These guns still work flawlessly after all these years as well. Kids now a days not knowing these things.....geez.

from my understanding, the difference between a "PMI-3" and the "VM-68" was the VM-68 had a sight rail, and had the body drilled on the left side for the back bottle attachment (with the hose)

The VM-68 always came in solid black, the PMI-3 came in that black and silver drip anno

The PMI-3 was what the fields used for rentals, the VM-68 was the "cooler" version that was used by regular players

Personally, I would look at a magnum, if you aren't in too big of a hurry. Or at least get the adapter to make it one. Having a tank at the front of it makes for a VERY front heavy gun.

And don't think adjusting the velocity on them is an easy job. You have to basically insert a special screwdriver down into it and turn the valve from the 12 oclock, to the 3 oclock, to the 6 oclock or the 9 oclock, depending on how fast or slow you need to go. Hitting 280 ft/sec exactly normally doesn't happen. Most of the time it seems like it is at 260 or 300 depending on how you have the valve set. Once it is there though, 90% of the time, you won't need to adjust it again. And run c02...not compressed air. They don't like air.

You are still forgetting the removal of the safety knob, the shorter cocking slot etc that made the PMI-3 into the VM-68, the early VM-68's also had the silver/black dripping/splash anno or however you call that.
