In a little predicament **Updated. Please help***

Well, I want a new paintball gun pretty bad. I'm just not sure if I want to get rid of the "luxury" of the Ion. Everyone knows well enough that a Ion will take a beating and last a long time. I have also become such a custom to having the evil pipe kit.

Do any of you that have had barrel kits not care too much for them anymore? abr5 is who I am most directing this to. I don't know if he has ever had a barrel kit though. I don't want to spend much on a new gun so if I were to get a new one, I would be selling my Ion and barrel kit to help pay for it. I would love to keep my pipe kit, but the only impulse threaded guns now are the older shockers (sft not nxt).

So another question, how much is my stuff worth?
custom paint blue/black fade Ion
Virtue QEV
Firebolt
NDZ roller blade trigger
spring delrin detents
CCM no pro rise feedneck
SP drop and rail asa
Ultra Evil Pipe kit 12 inches

Everything shoots great and the ultra tip only has a few scratches on the end of it. The paint job has small flaws but not too noticeable. Otherwise the bolt stays well lubed.

Last thing. What would be the best? I like the fusion and the Mini. I wouldn't mind a Defiant 2, but if the ROF isn't better than the Ion, then I don't want it. I love minions, but I can't find a decent price that i would like for them.

Oh and abr5, a nice price on any of your guns that come in would be appreciated. Thumbs up

Barrel kits can be good but I always stick to a .689 single bore barrel. They seem to work best and are very accurate. My favorite barrel would have to be a CP single piece barrel.

I'd say your gun and everything is worth maybe $250. That may be a little low/high, I'm not good with prices.

I'd recommend waiting until after cup and check out the new Fusion. I've seen pictures of them and I'm very impressed with the looks. I've shot a fusion before and they are great guns for the price. What is your price range after you sell your Ion, I could help you a little more once I find that out.

Well, depending on what I get for the Ion, I am willing to spend about $100-150 extra from that earned from the Ion.

I would really like to get atleast $300 from the Ion, but I'm not so sure I could get that.

For a barrel kit, look at the power lyte scepter kit. Extremely good kit.
abr5

I've had many MANY barrel kits. My favorite so far has been my un1tech kit. Its a shame Lucky Paintball is based in Europe now, so everythnig is more expensive. I also LOVE CP barrels, as well as dye barrels. I'm not crazy abotu stiffis. I hate the fact that you can't squeegee them. I also don't like smart parts barrels. They just aren't that great. I am getting a sly barrel on friday, so I'll let you know how that is.

As for a new gun, I'd go for a Fusion if you're looking for something around 300. They are quite nice. I will keep my eyes out for something for you. If youre interested, I'll sell you an 05 ego for $450.

If you have any specific questions about a gun let me know. I've probably shot/owned it. I'm up to around 33 guns I believe...



Edit:
Don't forget, when you get a poppet it will have more kick that your ion. Some like that, some don't.
If you want a spool you can get pm5s for ~250 (alot of times less), pm6's for 325ish, and dm5's for a bit more than d5m5's. This is if you look hard, but tis doable.
RoboCop

I'd love to be able to buy that ego from you, but it is a little more than I can spend right now. Unless you know what you can get for my Ion so we trade and I add a lot. I might be more likely to get the ego. I would really love to have an ego.

Thanks.
abr5

Sorry, but I don't want to havce to try to sell an Ion, too much work.


Go to your field and shoot a bunch of guns. Try timmies, they shoot very similary to egos. IF you get a timmy you can just throw an Eigenram and the lighter valve spring into it and it will have less kick than your ion. If you tune it right it will get ~1500-1700 off of a 68/4500. They are reliable if you take care of them, and if something does go wrong they are a common gun so your local shopshould be able to fix it.
RoboCop

Well if I can sell this Ion for a decent amount of money, I might take that ego if it all working.
abr5

The ego will probably be gone by Wed (at least thats what I'm shooting for). I am trying to sell most of my guns (right now I have my freeflow pump, UL pm6, the anno'd and milled dark timmy, and 2 05 egos. Plus an A-5, BKO project and another pump project). I am really looking to sell both of the egos then buy a marq 6 (I found a killer deal on one, I am just waiting for this guy to send me the money for one ego) and save the rest for a protege at cup.


Let me know your price range and I will try to downgrade the ego for something in the range. Then I will sell it for a very cheap price (if I get a gun + 200 for my ego, I could give away the gun I got and still break with the legend, bought legend for 500, gotten 100 (and a 100 dollar barrel), and another 100. But don' expect anything free from me, I am a cheapskate.

I have a deal for a basically brand new 06 minion. Everything is stock and good condition. What would be a good deal on one?
I love minions and was wondering if I should go for it.
abr5

350 would be a prewtty good price, although you could do better.
redneckdeerhunter

I'd say about $350 tops.
RoboCop

The guy is offering 325 shipped and he will cover paypal fees. Should I take it?

And abr5, did the deal with the mini fall through?
abr5

If you didn't notice, alot of companies just hadp rice drops in preparation for World Cup.
If you want a Fusion, you can now pick up a hybrid fusion for 385.

I would get a fusion if i could find an updated one for $300, but it would be nice to have a higher end gun for once in my life.

I'd take it.

The guy with the mini is one of thosep eople that checks thier pms every 4 days...
RoboCop

I like angels and their is a g7 with a CP 2 piece, A1 asa, and car charger. Seller says it shoots flawless but with some minor scratches.

How much should one of these go for? I asked $290 because he has it at $350
abr5

I think 320 is a good price.
RoboCop

Is $320 a good price for a hybrid fusion with shipping and paypal? Like new condition.
abr5

I guess so. Im not crazy about hybrids, but its up to you.
RoboCop

Now I got an offer for a mini for $299 shipped and paypal'd. I think I might take that because it will be small and lightweight as I am a front player. I just want a second opinion on it if it is a good price because I see them selling for about $300-350 now.

Anyone know if it costs money to send a mini in to get the gen 2 parts. The guy said his gun is shooting flawlessly unlike other minis have that had problems.
RoboCop

Now that World Cup is just around the corner, I might wait a little while before buying anything that way prices drop on any marker I might want.
RoboCop

People keep toying with my mind. A guy offered me $300 for a very pretty blue 06 minion. Then I was able to talk another guy into lowering his price down to $285 shipped and paypal'd and he is throwing in an evil driver w/o stock barrel. Only thing it is red, which I really wouldn't mind. So now, I am trying to lower the price on the blue one.
So for those of you that care or know about prices on guns, even though you said $320 would be a good price, should I take the $285 and try to resell for higher, maybe then I can make some money or trade my way up to higher end markers.
abr5

Buying and selling doesn't make much money unless you have a very desired gun. Selling guns is by no means easy. I've sold very few of the guns i've had, and I've tried to sell all of them. If I were you i'd hold out on buying anything until you can muster up some more cash for something you really like.
RoboCop

Well I could buy anything I wanted basically up to an 07 ego, but I plan on buying a scion tc so I really don't feel like spending more than $300. Even if I had a few grand, I still wouldn't want to spend more than $300 because I want the car.
RoboCop

I like the minion that I saw and so the guy is replacing the eyes and selling to me for $280 shipped and paypal'd. Not too bad of a deal. I'l prolly get pictures the day after I get it and play around with it.
It also has a tadao board, so atleast it won't be just semi even though that is all I ever use.
