Yeah, $300 max for it. You may only get 200-250 though. Ive been selling similar things, and the max people want to pay for a stocked bolt action is $300, and they are more popular than semi.
Sold for $220:


Sold for $250:


Best of Luck.

ahh yes the good ol cushman kits.
If that is in fact what it is, prepare to get less than 300$.
not sure how much you paid for that, but cushmans are ripoffs.
I can build the one in my previous post for about 600.

Let's face it. Tippmann A-5 and X-7 markers have about the worst resale value in paintball, except maybe for spyders.

Tippmann A-5 - Adult Owned, $$ Hundreds in Upgrades x-7 - eBay (item 170597917053 end time Feb-07-11 18:02:03 PST)
1. The market is feeling the down turned economy, even CCM guns are going for $100 less than they should
2. Everyone has a A5, the market is practically flooded with them
3. All the kids want the latest model, the Phenom. Even X7's arnt doing well
3. A5 upgrades have poor resale value, they are for your personal preference as a new barrel is all a tippmann needs

It's a Cushman. Look at the wire coming from the trigger, going into the frame. That's hooking to the actual trigger off the A5. They go for $175 roughly. Drop in, have to use ducktape to hold the trigger assembly to the rest of the gun, then run that clip to the other trigger. It's ugly and doesn't work too well.

yeah but im sure your HK416 mods were factory mods, or atleast quality mods. Cushman makes cob jobs.

ya but when i got the kit from them i did a lot of custom work on it. i re-drilled the entire kit, restained the wood, put pins into the trigger assembly to hold it in place (no tape), replaced the internal plastic parts with metal parts that i hammered myself. the weapon itself (once i was finished working out the kinks) works very well

You might be able to use the fact that it's a Cushman to help sell it. Their turn around for one of the kits is ten weeks or something like that. Someone thinking of buying the same thing might grab yours just to save time. Good luck selling it, either way.

I would say it would be better to keep then sell. Its sick and different so why not when your not going to get what its worth. You never know though someone might buy it for high dollar.
