    VLM? Merlin? Value?

    Can anyone tell me if this is a VLM or a Merlin 'cocker? What is it's value? Thanks!

    I'm going to guess that's a VLM ('99 spec) since Shocktech never made a Merlin low pressure chamber. I'll let others jump in as far as appraisals as I haven't bought or sold anything for a bit.

    Looks like a VLM as mentioned above. Aside from the frame and HPR looks rather stock from that time as far as the front components go.
    Value? 6-800? Not sure. Seeing that Rudy Dean sit unsold for a while may be telling of the market slowing down? Who knows.

    Definitely a VLM. Could probably ask for 5 with or without the frame. Goes to 8 with a good slider on it. The market is all brand-based now. Rudy was never popular enough AND that unsold one is before he started integrating the front block.

    Thanks guys. I figured it was a 99 VLM because of the back block + Clippard ram. Not the most scientific thing in the world, but they fit that year in my head

    Now that's stating the obvious and the lack of asking. But, it's not drilled is it??!? LOL

    Mercifully it has been spared the drill press treatment.
