Question Good Trade?

(Sorry if this is wrong place to post this mods feel free to move it if it is)

Hi, guys so I am trying to sell my Sniper on Craigslist locally and was offered a Macdev Cyborg Rx as a trade. My asking price for my sniper is $300 but I am not sure how much the Cyborgs are worth. Should I make the trade? Also are they nice guns? Thanks in advance!

I'd say it's fair if you like electros.

I would almost consider your asking price a little ambitious, especially given the pricing of the Empire Sniper (it really has changed the mid-range pump market). If you like electros or have always wanted a Cyborg, I would probably take it unless you need cash.

To flip it... no idea. I am not really familiar with the electro market.

He's right. I built that Sniper, and $300 for a Lightning is very ambitious.

Ya it is really ambitious but you know craigslist and people really lowball here. I put it at that price more expecting it to go for like 200-250. Kinda wanted to see how much I could get from it before I lowered the price down to that. Do you think that it would be a good trade though? Would I be able to sell or trade the Cyborg for the same or higher value if I did not like it?

True...hence the $400 Spyders and Tippmanns.

I don't think people here necessarily lowball, so much as people here have their finger on the pulse of the market better and have a clearer idea of what stuff is worth...predominantly due to the overall higher maturity level around here as opposed to some other sites.

The Droid is the better of the two guns, and if you decide you don't enjoy shooting it, you can sell it for more than you can sell the Sniper (or, at the very least, you'll have a MUCH easier time selling it for the same money). Sniper values still haven't fully recovered from the massive tanking they took a few years ago (like Phantoms are experiencing now).

I'd go for it, the Rx is fantastic, I still regret selling mine, and last I checked FMV on the Rx was around the $400 range.

Ok thanks. By here I meant craigslist in my area not the BST on this forum. Sorry for any confusion.


I think I am going to take the trade thanks for all the help everybody!

I guess I should also make my advice contingent on him proving to you that the Droid is working correctly. Test fire it before you swap. 'Cause if it turns out it's gutted or has a blown 'noid or something else majorly wrong, you can very easily end up spending big money to fix it.
