Those are all pneumatics except the bottom rubber powered sling. I will post them with names and close up shots later.

I have a friend who has a Potts gun made for him in "84". He has lost the original slip tip for the Potts shaft and needs one. Do you in all of your travels know where he able to purchase one?
Thank you for your time,
Duke Brownfield wrote:Paul,
Thanks for the reply. I thought it would be a problem finding one but I just wanted to throw it out there. To be honest it may be easier for Mori to just take a blank shaft, machine the notch to fit a Potts trigger mech and then use one of his adapters & tips but I would like to see what he says about the problems & expense for both ways. I will try and contact Mori-see what he says and then go from there. I will be up in the Ventura area next week so I will try and get in touch with him then. Like I said this for another person & I am just the go-between. If Mori will need one of the tips for a pattern I will let him know you have one and then I can let you know.
Thanks you once again,

Trouble is I'm not sure what gun to use and finding references (I lost all the photos I took at your place) has been tough. Can you recommend and share pics of a couple of your favorites. Consider a gun that would look good next to the likes of a "Rosie the Riveter" type gal. No nonsense, get the job done type of gun.
abachar wrote:Well if that was only 25% then your collection must be staggering. Send me a pic of that gun when you get a chance. firstname.lastname@example.org I'll make sure you get a nice giclee on canvas of the finished product.
