Manufacturer: PMI - Sheridan
Year: 1992

The name means "Pursuit Marketing Inc., version 3". Before '92, all Sheridan products were distributed by PMI. For the most part, the PMI3 is identical to the VM-68 except for some small internal differences that should be noted. First generation PMI-3s were NOT ambidextrous (the cocking knob could NOT be reversed). Plus, many early PMI-3s had a separate safety and cocking knob. Some PMI-3s had bolts which could be installed upside down. Most PMI-3s had the 'old' style cupseal. This cupseal was of weaker construction and was not friendly to liquid CO2. All 'old' cupseals can be upgraded to the 'new' kind, but the valve might have to be slightly modified. None of the PMI-3s had ambidextrous feed blocks (as well as some VMs). The 'body' of a PMI-3 is identical to a VM-68, and thus can accept any aftermarket mod.
