Honestly I don't think so, no way you can put $600 on an old A5 in a stock.

At max i'll say this market support the $300 price, but not much more than that. If someone is going to spend $600 they would have pluck it down for a KP, a KP2, a KP3, or anyone of those other rifles out there for sale.

There was an automag inside a stock for $240 or so and it took forever (months) to sell. So an old A5 inside a stock would not fetch as much as you hope.

I'm trying to sell an A-5 with about $650 of performance parts in it for $160 on Ebay and have had no luck in three weeks of auction listings.

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

Paintball resale sucks in general, and Tippmann resale really sucks. I'd say $450 is a good price if you can get that, b/c of how authentic it looks. But performance wise most people can and will probably get a Phenom or X7 for less.

$300 is being generous. Cushman kits (like the one on your A5) are sloppy and slapped onto a stock A5...I'd start at $300 and be prepared to go way lower.
