Lori Wilcox on Palmer’s Stroker – P27

Lori Wilcox, of Palmer’s Pursuit Shop, shows off P-27, an early Palmer’s Stroker that belongs to her brother Larry Sirus, and was in for repairs when Tim Firpo and I stopped by the Shop in early May of 2013.

Larry Sirus owned and operated Survival Sports out of Sacramento (Ione), California and played along with Lori and Rick Wilcox on The Dogs of War for many years.

I thought this Stoker (built off a P-series not scratch built) was particularly interesting because it was previously setup as a pump (Paladin style) which is evident from the drop out slot and J slotted quicksilver on the right hand side. The LPR can be seen in the side tube.
Also, it wasn’t plated, which for a particularly old Palmer’s paintgun gives it extra character.

Other details to mention about this Stroker are that the UMB bottomline bracket is attached to a stock that originally took a UMB mount. The grips are Elite Battle grips, since Forest Brown, of Elite Products was a player on the Dogs of War, with Larry and Lori.

The Quicksilver changer has the J slot cut into it, which means it was one of Glenn’s first Quicksilver conversion. Notice it does not have co2 threads.  It also has a drop slot cut in conjunction with the J slot.

I’m not sure how regulator adjustment would have been done on this Stroker since the Quicksilver is set up in front? We can see the 12 gram in the drop slot as been replaced with the aluminum tubing of the Stoker semi auto conversion.

The serial number is stamped on the back left top side of the barrel tube. Back upper and lower tubes are flush, because this is a Stroker conversion and not a scratch built Typhoon. Sheridan text stamping is just visible on the lower left side in between the ram housing and the back bottle adapter’s arms.

Overall a really neat gun.  I hope it stayed painted black after the rebuild (just for nostalgic reasons).
