Products Used:
Sheridan PGP (original)

Pros
[list]
[*]Lighter
[*]Smaller
[*]Easier to take aim
[/list]

Cons
[list]
[*]5 balls less capacity
[/list]

I felt the accuracy between a PGP and my P68 was nearly identical. I favored the PGP more due to the reasons provided.

CCI Phantom SC

Pros
[list]
[*]Lighter
[*]Lighter pump action
[*]c02 is MUCH quicker to change
[/list]

Cons
[list]
[*]More expensive
[/list]

Between, the Phantom and the P68 I preffered the Phantom more. I had owned a Phantom in the past but became disillusioned with stock class play and decided to sell it. A choice I always came to regret.
Marker Setup: AutoMag
[list]
[*]AGD ReTro Valve
[*]AGD Flatline 68ci/3000 tank
[*]black AGD powerfeed right body

Recommended
Upgrades:
Rear velocity adjuster
Strengths: [list]
[*]Durability, the body is constructed from brass and offers solid protection against harsh conditions.
[*]Internal magazine incased in brass cylinder, provides added protection against magazine hits that would otherwise break the balls inside.
[*]Integral barrel provides a satisfactory level of accuracy.
[*]Ease in dissasembly.
[/list]
Weaknesses: [list]
[*]Heavy, this gun is what I consider heavy for a stock gun.
[*]Pump action could be smoother.
[*]Grips could have been better.
[*]Magazine tube plug could have been designed to prevent loss.
[*]Velocity adjustment definitely needs to be modified.
[/list]
Conclusion: The pro's and con's on my review of the Sheridan P68 is based on the original unmodified version of the Sheridan P68.

The weight of the gun doesn't ruin the experience for me, however, weight is a critical issue to some people, so I just wanted to lay it out for prospective buyers to see.

The pump action isn't neccessarily bad, but after trying a CCI Phantom your opinion may change.

The grips are not terrible for a marker that is built to be within this budget range. I have no qualms about the comfort but I won't deny that they aren't cheap grips. I am satisfied with the feel of the grips so that is the bottom line.

The plug at the end of the magazine is very small and could be lost very easily. Some sort of method to keep the tube plug attached between reloads would result in having one less object in your hand during a reload.

Velocity adjustment should have came factory equipped with the rear velocity adjuster setup.

Although this gun is obsolete as far as stock guns go, this gun still appeals to my tastes and I will continue to use it.
