ffs1942 Sunday, July 10th, 2005
Period of
Product Use:
2 years
4 years
Products Used:
Tippmann A5
Marker Setup: Palmer bottom bracket and ASA
Palmer constant air 12g adapter
Palmer anti-double feed
12oz CO2 or 47CI HPA backbottle
200 rd hopper
Palmer autotrigger linkage
Field strip cut in receiver.
Smoothed out porting.
As above

Palmer "wedgits"(dimples that act as ball detents

Porting by Palmer.I like mine LOUD though.

TASO silencer. Out of production, maybe even illegal, but out there.

Electric hopper, but not for me.
Walnut grips. Hmmmm.
Strengths: ACCURACY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oldskool panache.
Dull brown Benjamin finish, which wears to shiny brass.
Weaknesses: Primitive design. Some modern pumpgun features impossible even as aftermkt add-ons.
Review: This is maybe the most accurate marker I've ever seen, perhaps due to its brass approx .687-.690 barrel. Extremely reliable. Gentle on paint in cold weather and replaces my A5 as my cold weather gun. Above upgrades make it competitive with any new gun. A true keeper.
I collect Benjamin pellet guns and this represents part of that collection. Sheridan was a subsidiary of Benjamin when it entered PB. My P12 has a Benjamin gripframe and a dull brown Benjamin finish.

Only disadvantages are lack of ball detents and no anti-doublecock. Undesirable to carry with rd chambered or it can roll out. You can also forget you are already cocked and chambered and chamber more rds. Palmer "wedgits" can act as detents, but I fear they could break balls. Unaware of aftermkt anti-doublecock. These disadvantages can be played around, so no big deal.

Unported barrel makes satisfying "BOOM". My team rallies around me and my paintenemies come looking for a paintfight, so it attracts action. I almost bought an old TASO silencer(for rear area sniping),but kid withdrew it from sale. He didn't even know what it was.
Conclusion: Perhaps my best all around gun.

Because of its mods, its kind of a one-off, but you can get something like it from Palmer.

Mine was set up by me and my good friend, master airgunsmith and oldskool impressario, Jason Jameson, of Action Jack's, Colfax IA.
