Sins Erased

Need help deciding

I was recently offered a 68 Classic for my DM3. I have been wanting a mag for a while, but I'm not a fan of angled feednecks in the slightest bit. I feel that I shouldn't go for it straight up, but I don't know enough of mags to say that it isn't worth the DM3.

The 68 Classic:
2 single triggers
level 7 bolt
2 barrels
agd back bottle adaptor




The DM3:
Vitrue Board
Eyes
Hybrid 50/50 Grip Frame
Warped Sportz Breech
Shocktech LPR
Volumizers
Snatch Grip Back Plate
14" System X Barrel .689
on/off
Bob Long Torpedo Reg
Clamping Feedneck
Proto Grips




Any info would be great and thanks.

Classic valves alone are still worth around $50. Whole markers in good condition are around $100. People have learned that mags easily out live their paintball careers.

I've been curious about DM3's lately. The barrel/feedneck piece is interesting. I was thinking a swappable piece would be nice for the open source build being discussed.

The old elbows on mags take a little getting used to. That said, I find myself working with gravity hoppers more often just for the ease of use and weight (and one less thing to turn on when you get on the field). I hate having a checklist for "game on".

I have a very clean stock minimag that I would consider for the same trade, but I really don't know what the differential in value would be either.

You can get a new ULE (Ultra Light Engineering) body that will be a direct bolt on to your 68 classic. You just need to push out the pin for the twist lock barrel and the new ULE bodies have cocker threads with vert, angel threaded, feeds.

Spider! is right, that classic 'Mag is worth about $100. Maybe an extra $25 for the frame and barrel. They're very nice guns. A 'Mag has been my main mechanical gun for 15 years.
