Selling price is 615.00 with 20 shipping.

A factory Side Tube PG, I haven’t seen one of these for sale since I purchased mine back in 2006,

Sure it have a few non stock additions such as the fast changer and the RVA but those pieces can easily be replaced with parts from another stock top tube PG. The body is the most important piece on this pistol and in this case it does look very clean.

I’ve heard different numbers on the production of these pistols, but the similar factor is most quotes are under 100. I think David Freeman told me only 20 but I think that number is too small since this is overall the 7th I think I’ve seen.
I would guess the actual number is around 50-100?

I’m not sure whether these pistols were commissioned by PMI or if Sheridan built them for tree marking. I’m also not sure on the date for these but it was before the top tube ramp sight PG which can be dated in its manual to November 1984 (so likely 1984 sometime).

The seller was Justin “Jincay” Temple on mcb and I’m not sure who ended up pruchasing it.

A few years back Justin sold me this .62 cal Splatoon/Daystate pump pistol in this article:

I meant to post this while the auction was still running but got side tracked as usual but anyways, cool to see another sold.
I paid $100-200 more for mine when I bought it but I still feel I got a good deal and the buyer of this Side Tube PG got a great deal if, once it’s restored, the body does end up looking as great as the photos.
