That seems like quite the prize. The price is already getting up there. It'll be interesting to see where it ends up.

I remember the show well. I have no idea what it will sell for, either.

I am sure it's ultra rare.

Weren't the Sheridan PaintBall markers .50 cal?

Ya, Jim was like  Tonto. Go to town, get your butt kicked, do the work while the Lone Ranger (Marlin) got the credit.  I got the whole DVD set for Fatherís Day. I remember watching that, the Beverly Hillbillies and Walt Disney on Sunday nights. Gunsmoke was in there too. Which I watch at lunch every day.

I think the K series were chambered for the standard .50 caliber.

If you call your shots some days you kill it and some days you choke, some days you blast off and some days you just smoke.

Can you believe they wasted beautiful wood like that on a dart gun that is probably only viewed as a necessary tool by either farmers or veterinarians?  Wow!

I have had a few dart guns over the years.  I did shoot patched .490 round balls from a couple of them just for kicks.  I lubed the patches a little and loaded them like a muzzle loader making sure not to push the bullet past the transfer port.  Mine were co2 and would push the ball out fast enough to smack a tree at 20 yards or so.  It would bounce off but it was fun.  A Sheridan should shoot pretty strong.  Good memories.
