That was originally a KP2, which was 12 gram powered and had a side mouted stock class feed. However it's been modified. Old school mods, but still modified. The direct feed is copper plumbing parts soldered on, unfortunatly this mod screws up the original side feed. Makes restoration difficult. Constant air kit has been added though it's not the usual tank mouting setup, most don't have hose clamps. If you have the original 12 gram tube plug it would be a good thing. The tank looks like a 10oz thermo valve tank, which is cool on it's own. If it's less than 2" in diameter then it's exempt from hydro testing, so feel free to use it. You could also replace the thermo valve setup with a more modern valve and pin depressor if you want.

What are your goals with it? You want to play with it as is? Sell for a quick buck? Spruce it up for serious pump play? Send it to Palmer's and make it into a Hurricane (semi auto conversion)?

Unfortunatly, all the old modifications really hurt the resale on it. The hacked off side feed tube especially. Not to mention the missing trigger guard, missing front 12gram plug, scratched up pump arm, and considerable wear and tear. Though the stock seems in restorable condition (no major cracks, and it hasn't been hacked into a 'pistol') assuming the bottle mount isn't too damaging, and the trigger group alone on those is worth a suprising amount of cash.

Depending on if the gun actually functions (cocks and fires just fine with no leaks), a serious collector looking for a restoration project or a base gun to send to Palmers for some serious modifications might be tempted to drop about $150 on it. Sometimes they go for more, depending on the market that day.

Of course if you send it out to get fixed up it will only increase it's value. Plus it would be a heck of a lot more fun to use.

Only if it works. If not, then likely less money, since restoring it would be so difficult. These guns really are something worth shooting if you've got one that is actually shooting.

Best bet is to drop it on ebay. I've seen them in worse shape go for more.
