RARE Vintage Crosman 3357 Spotball Marker Paintball 50 Caliber | eBay
Looks like it's in very bad shape, lots of parts missing, would need a lot of work (but bidding starts at the hefty price of $199).
...and what is with the FREE SHIPPING, but in the description it says this:
"Shipping supplies will be charged to buyer like bubble wrap, tape, peanuts, and a used box."
..plus it could take a month to ship!:
"Shipping might take up to a month since it will be sent by ground mail since it is very big and heavy."
I messaged the buyer about all this, and all he would say was "these are very rare and almost impossible to find, they made less than a dozen, and in good condition, they sell for over $350, so this auction is very reasonably priced."
...hmm, if Crosman made less than a dozen, how come I have been about to buy/rebuild/resell over 30 of them in the last 3 years?
Here is another great auction on gunbroker.com (also listed for sale on cliffsgunsmithing.com) NEW*Crosman 3357 Spot Marker - Paint Ball Gun : Paintball Guns at GunBroker.com
(not even a real picture of the item, just a generic picture form the web)
I also contacted this guy, and offered him $150, (since his auction has been running for over 3 years and has not sold). His response was "these sell for $450-$500! and at the price of only $250 it's going to go quick!"
...hmmm... yeah "go quick" like the fact that it has not gone anywhere for over 3 years?
Gotta love peoples thoughts on the value of stuff they have...
