A few months ago I sold my old old old PMI-2 pump gun to a guy on MCB.
The gun was in only semi-working condition & needed a lot of love to be really playable again...it had been years since it was even stripped & cleaned. He wanted a "project" gun...so my ancient beast was just what he was looking for.

Today the guy posted the pics of the finished project...and blew my mind. This thing is bloody gorgeous!

Bravo!

Mad does great work. That looks excellent. Nothing like it did before. Love the SS cram and jam feed on it. That is slick. XD Cocker frame is also a key upgrade. XD

I'll always have a spot in my heart for those old PMI IIs

I love MaD's work. You should have seen his SNY sheridan. I'll try to dig up a picture.

I was delighted to see what he did with it. I had that old gun for almost 20 years, but hadnt used it since '03 or '04. It deserved to be spiffed up & loved instead of just gathering dust at the bottom of my spare parts bin.
Plus I took the money I got for it and bought a stock class harness & a big box of 12 grams to go with my new VSC Phantom, so it was a good deal all around. Capitalism at its finest! :P
