Question PPS Blazer what's it worth?

I have a PPS Blazer used but in good condition cosmetically 7.5/10 mechanical 10/10 just minor anno wear here and there on the gun. The serial number is BZ055 so it's the right feed body. The palmers stab has been swapped out for what looks to be just some generic black regulator. It does also have palmers own thread adapter so it can use auto cocker barrels. Since I am relatively new to MCB I couldnt find an appraisal section. Can someone help me to find out the value

I'd say around $180 - $220 range without seeing pics. The cocker adapter is helping but missing a stabilizer is hurting.

Does it work? Does it need to be retimed? Is it leaking?

If it's fully functional, cycles correctly, and pressurizes without leaks that will also yield a higher resale price when compared to that of a non functional, improperly timed, and leaking marker (the majority of stuff people list for sale online).

For those that don't think that a fully functional 1k blazer has bonus value, just go on the PPS website and see what they charge to rebuild and time a 1k blazer; your opinion might change.

Yup, a working Blazer definitely makes a more attractive sale. I just got done sorting out an ill functioning 2K Blazer [$$$]. I would not have bought it if I'd known it did not function as a paintgun [cycled sort of]. [my fault for not being clear what I asked seller]

$250 top price for good condition 1K Blazer with barrel for working [shoots paintballs at reasonable velocity] and no leaks. The Barrel adapter to me adds no value. Without Barrel but working/no leaks $200 Tops the worse the condition the lower the price.

What type of grip frame does it have? Sometimes that can be a selling point too. Judging from the 10/10 mechanical description (works as it should) $200 is around where I would price it, but it may take you a while to move it.

I'd say based on giving an estimate in the dark, the mcb member user comments are spot on. Unlike other items, a PPS product typically has a decent resale valve.

Depending on options, cleanliness, user damage, released pss 1K blazer upgrades made available throughout the years, and overall working functionality a used 1K Blazer can range anywhere from $100 to an upwards of $400 (maybe more depending on anno pattern).
