2 tippmanns and Splatmaster Value?

Just picked these up off craigslist for what I thought was a good price:



$40

68 Special needs front bolt but otherwise in good condition

SL68 needs a little work, bolt only goes back halfway

Splatmaster airs up, no leaks, cycles but its not shooting full power all the time, mostly chuffs with an occasional full shot.

What is the value on them and any tip/suggestions about them and finding parts?

If you found all the missing parts then they might go for $50-90 each. Some parts, like the rapide magazine, or 68-special bolt are around. Check baccipaintball. He has sold them before.

As for the SL-68, the hammer might be in backwards. It was a common mistake that you didn't notice until you couldnt fully cock it. Is it missing the valve screws?

Are the feednecks cracked on the tippmans? is the feed or barrel tensioner stripped? those are common problems. You need adapters for modern hoppers, but they are floating around. Its a later model Tippmann. if it airs up, then the gas line is not blown (a common problems)

Hammer is in the correct way, has the side valve screws, have an extra powertube for it, didn't notice any cracks or stripped threads but ill have to take a closer look at them.

Aired up the 68 Special, had a slight leak but some oil in the ASA fixed that, feedneck is in great shape, it cycles without the bolt but I don't feel air out the other side of the powertube is that normal with the bolt not being in there?
