Need help with IDing these two bodies.

What's it worth?

Looking to turn these into pumps, but just wanted to know the origins of these two bodies first.

Thanks guys!

Purple looks like a pre2k that someone decided to mill. Silver one is a Merlin.

That merlin body is hot. I agree about the purple one. Probably pre 2k because of that back block. And it does look like someone tried to replicate the predator cocker gills

the purple is pre2k though the back block is actually ment to be used on a 2k with a pre2k bolt. If you look at the VA on the body, you can see the square edges. on a regular pre2k it would be square on the bottom by the back block as well. 2k's were rounded all the way from the front to the back. The solid slab on the passenger side is also a dead give away that it is pre2k.

I don't remember all the companies that made that style of back block but I know shocktech did, KAPP also made some that were the size of pre2k back blocks but rounded for 2k bodies and drilled for 2k bolts.
why is it that 90% of the people with "contract killer" grips look like they could be b*tch slapped by a girl scout?

Top body is most likely a Bob Long body (97-98) that someone decided to mill and ano. It would take a pre-2k pump kit. The ram is WGP, the LPR looks to be a Sledgehammer, and the 3-way is a Check-it.

The second body is an AKA Merlin, as some of the guys above have said. The LPR and ram on that one are PPS.

Merlin's have different lower tube dimensions than other cockers, and take a different banjo bolt. Because of this they need a special adapter (available from CCM) to be converted to pumps.

That Merlin body is really nice. Since it has the internals and some PPS pneumatics with it you could probably get a fair amount of coin for it, and put that towards a CCM marker.

Also, let me know if you'd like the sell the top body, I have the parts to restore it back to its original form as a 99 spec cocker.

The top one is serial number 26k which should put it around 1995.
That Merlin is nice. I'd be interested in it if you do decide to sell.

Thanks for the help guys. It really means a lot. How much do these run for roughly?

I do plan on selling later on but I'd just like a ballpark estimate of how much I can let these go for. I know some of you guys are interested in it so please be reasonable!

cant really tell if it is a merlin or just a VLM. what does the serial number say on the bottom of the body? that will tell you. Or a picture of the front block looking at is from the front.

MLxxxx is merlin
SAxxxx is a splat attack
