We recorded this video shooting a G&H Customs’ KL Lever action Sheridan rifle back in the summer of 2014 along with a series of other videos.
I had originally planned on not releasing this video since I don’t show my target, and my continuity is a little screwed up between takes, but the cycling of the lever is almost hypnotic so I figured it might as well go live.
As I mention above, this brass rifle is a KL lever action paintball rifle. Similar to a pump action KP, which was originally built by Sheridan for PMI.
But this particular rifle was built off the lower tube of a Sheridan pellet rifle using a cartridge valve and the stock features an enclosed lever action cocking mechanism.
Jake “Spydrmn” Helfer and Bret “BretG” Golihew built these rifles, under the name of G&H Customs.
When I traveled to Living Legends in 2012 I met Jake Helfer and he asked if I was interested in a lever action rifle. Typically Jake and Bret built these rifles for customers, but in this case, Jake already had the rifle built for himself. I mailed him a money order a few weeks later and he sent me KL20.
Jake and Bret are no longer taking custom work (as far as I know) but while they were building rifles they constructed them out of brass and stainless and each was pretty much totally custom.
They featured unique features such as flip up sights, front sights, thadapters, custom “Jake” bolts, and a few even featured Brassballs custom wood stocks.
This rifle, KL-20, features a left side feedtube, a brass block sight, one of Jake’s bolts, a front wedge sight and is built around a Sheridan Cartridge valve.
Special thanks to Videographer Nicki Bacci, and eventually you can look forward to another, more detailed 4K video with the target showing.
