|LetteceHead's Punisher's Customs VM nicknamed the Salad Shooter. Quite possibly the most wicked VM ever! Here's Punisher's description:
"The 45 frame is a one piece that started out as part of some Spyder clone or another (I bought a box full). A little milling and you have one very sweet frame for a VM! I converted the front ASA into a cool looking plug with an O-ringed piston inside to seal it up. Also note the cocker style ball detent (requires a longer bolt, see below). Here's the custom delrin bolt and hammer set. No O-rings needed on either, both pieces fitted to the honed bores of the breech. A couple shots to show off the milling and top cocking setup. Makes me eye-ball the vm's I own with a similar intent!"
Here's another picture of it.
|Another wild creation by Punisher's Customs! Here's what Lee had to say:
"What you're looking at is a pneumatic trigger, side feed VM68 Bullpup. The OEM trigger group is still used in this format, in the main rail lives a ram that actuates the trigger via a sliding yoke. The trigger actuates a spring return 4-way valve which sends its pneumatic signal to the ram. The result is a 3/32" trigger pull, lightly sprung that'll set that VM hammer to slamming back and forth quick enough to bruise you if you're not ready for it. It's really quite fast for what it started out as. Shroud off, shows the 4-way valve placement and LPR/LPC setup. The lower portion of the body has been hogged out and a nice fat LPC was turned up to also act as an adapter for the LPR. LOTS of volume for the valve....gun's fast enough to need it too. A few shots of the side feed conversion (1 - 2 - 3). Not shown is the ball detent (adjustable tension no less!). The access block can be pulled out very easily by sliding the site rail back.....nice for cleaning in the event of a chop. Couple shots of the body before finishing (1 - 2). The old school slide on sight rail has been called upon to act as a brace for the side feed and access block. This gun is evil!"
|Highly modified VM-68 by Punisher Customs. As shown in the pics it's not completely done, but it's still sweet! More pics: 1, 2, 3.|
|Complete rework by Craig Palmer of Palmer's Pursuit Shop and about a $700 job. Tuned, with a trigger job, quick release back cap, with bottom line, classic finish vented barrel. Sight rail machined into the body. Many thanks to Craig Palmer for sending in the pic! (click picture for full size) Another older picture here.|
|This is a PRO-COMPv.3 upgraded VM with custom milling done by Doc Nickel. It also has a double finger trigger, euro grips, drop forward, aftermarket barrel (don't know what kind), front ASA plug, an expansion chamber, and a regulator. There's even a sight rail milled into the top of the gun! More pictures here and here.|
|This was Patrick "GusDaDog" Triemstra's VM nicknamed 'Sarge'. It has a milled body, fade ano, custom Armson rifled barrel (1/4 turn quick release, like a Mag), external velocity adjuster kit, rear .45 grip block, custom front .45 block, Hogue grips, double trigger shoe, Armson power feed, and a Venturi bolt.|

|"A totally custom VM-68 Magnum. This marker has been striped down and completely reworked. The front of the marker has been ground off and reshaped making this marker lighter and easy to handle. A rear bottle adapter has been installed which will accept either a Co2 bottle or a remote. The chamber has been polished micro smooth and resurfaced with a teflon coating resulting in an almost frictionless movement. This will help the marker cycle faster so you can get your next shot off quickly! The exterior surface of the marker has been sand blasted and resurfaced with a molycoating in Flat Charcoal Black. This is the same molycoating used by H&K as well as other goverment contractors to protect the weapons of many Special Operation Forces. As a final touch, a set of Mohagany grips were added. Also included in this package is a 12" Taso Power barrel and a 20oz CO2 bottle custom painted to match the marker." Here's a picture of the other side. And here's another pic.|
