Review: Ok, from the top, I bought this gun brand new about six months ago when i stumbled across one in a sporting goods store. Knowing that these were rare and special guns, i grabbed it quickly. I paid $100 for it, and can safely say i could sell it for a bit more then that due to its rarity.

How it works: On the field it shoots amazing. Its got a definately different feel to it then most guns. I love how it shoots, super straight and long, one of the longest ive seen. When i first got it, it had no velocity adjuster (Problem fixed w/ a screw in the back), so it was only shooting like 220ish, which is rediculously low. I still managed to get almost the same range as most people who's guns were turned up to the field legal 290fps. After fixing the velocity w/ my screw, It pumped it up to 310fps. Amazing gun to shoot!!!

Weakness: Heavy, but you learn to deal w/ it. The paint is a problem, b/c it comes off way to easily. I am solving this by sending it to get powdercoated.
Conclusion: If you thinking about going pump or trying out stock class, this gun, if you can find one, will help make it fun and exciting. This changed my mind about SC and since I have almost completely changed over to pump/SC markers. Its also fun to go to the field and have everyone look at you like "wtf is that gun" then start wispering "he uses a pump, watch out for him or he'll get ya." And I have many of times :). If you have the love for pump, then P68 is the way to go!

FYI, they stopped making these in the early 90's.
