going rate for a used mini?

Looking for a general range of what I could expect to sell a used 2011 mini. I think its gloss blue. Few small scratches, but in good working order? I'm thinking about picking one up local to me to flip, but don't know what I could expect to sell it for. Its over an hour away so, I want to be sure its worth my time.

Pic no work; not for me, anyway. Shouldn't need a charger, Minis just use regular 9v's.

I see em go for ~$200 used, sometimes less. Prices may vary with different annos (specifically, that chrome one that came with white gloves, probably run ya more cash), but blue ain't special.

I've seen them go for $150.00 often enough.

I fixed the pic.

is the regulator able to handle a 1000psi input? Its the only tank that has air in it right now and I want to be able to test it prior to purchasing, but don't want to destroy it.

Not sure but that's very high output for even a high pressure tank. If you did this please turn down the guns reg until it will not gas up before you screwed the tank in. Then screw tank in, and slowly open the guns reg back up.

its just a regular ninja 1000psi tank reg. It's suppposed to output at that pressure. Good for automags.

so to be safe back the gun reg all the way out and then slowly turn the it back up? I would guess that would avoid the massive pressure slam of just screwing the tank in normally? My tank is pretty low so I might not even have 1000 psi in when I get there. I guess I would be safe then?

To flip a mini id pay no more than $125, any higher and it isnt really worth it. Thats how much I paid for a V3 mini and resold 2 weeks later locally for $190. I guess you could pay more but to me there isnt enough profit to take the risk of not selling fast enough or having a problem with the gun that you will have to fix.

they're losing value I guess. I did a straight trade for about $250 value with my mini + a cruddy barrel.

Yes, to avoid the possibility of 1000psi hitting the solenoid and blowing it out. If the on gun reg is off and you slowly open it up you should be OK.

Another problem with a high output tank is it's a total bear screwing & unscrewing it when full, unless you swap the asa for the Empire Relay. I don't even recommend standard hp outputs for Minis. LP tanks or bust, man.
