I'm pretty sure that it's a WGS. My brother-in-law has one in the basement, I'm just too lazy to go down and look. Sorry..

The more I look at it, the more it has to a VM or VM clone. The cocking slot, the grip frame (except the trigger guard, but that is easily replaced), the screws, the feed block, the air-in section, it all says VM. The WG-65 hardly looks like this mystery marker.

A long time ago there was a M4 style marker that was supposedly used for military/police training. This marker was supposed to have been made by Sheridan... I agree with Jackson that it looks like a VM-68. The weight of the marker is a good clue as well. These old markers were made of serious metal...

The Military marker I used was more like a Vector and may have actually been.

The thing definitely feels built like a Sheridan, but usually they have their name and model stamped into the body. It's possible the owner filed and filled, then painted, but he must have been really good at it because there are no markings at all except for an etched serial number, and I can't see anywhere where it looks like markings were removed or painted over. 'Tis still a mystery...

Thanks for the help and ideas so far!

No. It doesn't look like that at all. The grip frame is completely wrong. The air source on the mystery marker connects to almost a third tube below the valve/striker tube. The SIM-4 has no side cocking slot. The need neck is completely different. The carry handle on the SIM-4 is a very close clone of the M4's, while the mystery marker's is not.

Details. Look at the details. Too many people are just looking at the M4 silhouette and jumping to conclusions.

It defiantly isn't a SIM-4. I have a SIM-4 from back when Ariakon was called Armotech and the carry handle is all wrong, no side cocking mechanism and they aren't that heavy. It could be some old Warsensor without the mag addon but I don't think so.
