    AKA VLM Information

    Well, I'm wondering what the value of this thing is. I had a thread going over on MCB, but I'm getting NO info! It's depressing...

    On another note, on a search for similar markers, I haven't been able to find (that I recall) another P-blocked full bodied VLM. If anyone can offer some insite to this, I'd be most appreciative.


    The Interesting

    - Pre 2K AKA VLM
    - SN #0147
    - A bit scratched up, but nothing to the metal.

    The Goods

    - Full AKA internals with dialer velocity adjuster
    - AKA Lightning Bolt
    - AKA pump arm
    - AKA Mitey Max low pressure chamber
    - KAPP cocking rod
    - KAPP trigger w/ shoe
    - KAPP aluminum panel grips
    - KAPP LPR
    - WGP Ergo HPR
    - WGP on/off ASA
    - WGP (looks like it) ram
    - Benchmark slider
    - ANS HPR
    - Custom Products flame drop
    - Shocktech Bomb 3-way

    The Pics







    This thing may not be the prettiest (but man is it green!), but she shoots nice! As always, thanks for any information!
    Wouldn't you really rather have a Buick?

    As for the size it's a std. cocker size as for brand It's most likely aka tornado unless changed would be my thought.

    I know all the technical data about this thing (aside from specific year of manufacture), such as brand (AKA VLM), size (pre-2K full bodied P-block) and even all the parts used on it. I just need to know how "rare" it is, and an estimated value. I know rarity is a loaded question, but if anyone has any thoughts, I'd love to hear them!

    njr, I do appreciate your efforts though.

    press in or screw in feed? screw in would make it a very late one right before the merlins. I have seen oen other pblocked merlin style vlm, so pretty rare i'd say. that said, value is probably on par with other nice vlms woudl be my guess.

    Thanks for the info! It's a press-in feedneck, so it's an older model. I've got to say, I've really fallen for this thing.

    Whoops, missed this. I don't have it, but I was just pestering the guy I sold it to to sell it back to me. No luck. If you ever drop back into this thread, post up some pics. I miss mine...
