Thats a splatmaster. Id say anywhere between 20-40 dollars maybe abit more since it comes with the box, goggles? and paperwork.

sold for fish tacos
There is one in the museam, and thats one of the few I ever saw. It was made by Bob Gurnsey (GurnZ) one of the fellows that started NSG.
Basicaly a 555 cal splatmaster, setup to shoot plastic balls.
You might be able to get it to shoot .50 cal paint, but expect rollouts, and insane efficiency. Otherwise, its a cool wall hanger, probably worth 50+

Its one of 3 versions made- Splatmaster, Icon, and GurnZ
The short version of the story as I heard it was near the end of the 80s, demand for the Splatmaster vanished, replaced by cheap entry level pumps (ie Razorbacks, Bloodsuckers, etc). Gurnsey was sitting on a large stockpile of parts, so he quickly retrofitted them to shoot .555 BBs, but never sold very well.
Hard to say without actually seeing the inside, but the only difference might be the barrel? It might even be the same, but sleaved?

Assuming the bolt is the same or similiar to a .68 cal I have a stock barrel you can have.
