Gotta describe it better. How long is it? Does it have a back site? Metal pump or plastic pump? Wood grips or plastic grips? Brass colored, black, silver? Glow in the dark sights? Heck maybe a picture if you have the capabilities. There were lots of different models some even took a hopper and elbow and it all matters on what it's worth.

Unless its a 2001 pgp, which it apparently isnt, its worth something. Take it from the sheridan master Now if it had a wood stock on it, you stumbled on a gold mine. If the grip frame to the barrel runs the legth of your forearm, its usuallya p68, pmi-1, or p68at. Maybe a pmi-2 but i doubt a pursuit pistol, id give my left nut for one.

dont sell it. Keep it and play with it. Nothing beats an old sheridan. By the looks around $100 is good price. As long as it holds air. If the inside of the barrel still has overspray get some brasso and run a cloth with some brasso on it to get rid of it.

Nice gun, keep it. I'm in the process of buying a P68SC (almost the same thing). Should be lots of fun to run around and shoot people with. It uses 12 grams and there is no hopper, how low can maintenance be??

Get a $4 shotgun belt from Wally world and some 10 round tubes and you are set.

Ok, then you probably know by now that the first shot will be weak, right? LOL The first shot is the one that the pierce pin goes through the 12 gram on.

Make sure you run a cord through the ball tube cap and tie it off to the pumprod before you lose it too. : )

Well i scaned all the posted and no one seemed to mention that it was a PMI-1 in the picture. All i can say is nice find, it looks to be in nice condition from the picture and i bet you could get around $100 USD for it, but if i were you i wouldnt sell it. There are only a certian number of good condition markers like that left around still and to sell it to someone that might mod it or treat it badly is.... well it would be a shame to waste it. BUT if you really really wanted to sell it go to www.mcarterbrown.com and sell it there. Its the biggest bunch of gun whores you'll ever find and they will treat it well.

since there are only a certain number of "pmi-1" left in good condition would u say that theyd be worth a lot more when they get older?

I guess the price youd get for it would increase over time, if you treat it well. But you should go out and play with it, enjoy the marker. Stock class is a lot of fun and you could learn and get a lot better from it. Just take good care of it and if you can get some better pictures up for us to see.

$100 for a good condition one at most since those were like the 98 customs of their time.
