Collection of old pump markers

Hi Guys

I have just got in my possesion quite an impressive collection of old pump action paintball markers and I would like to know a few things about them.
I would like to know their year of manufacture/use,
if anyone has ever used them,
if you can still get them today.
and anything else that might be relevant.
They are all, (except the splatmasters) really well machined bits of kit none of this casting that we get today and they are all in mint condition, unused in my opinion.

Please have a look at the images and tell me what you think.

The markers that I have are

1 x Lapco Wrath


1 x T.A.S.O Spartan


1 x T.A.S.O Centurion


1 x T.A.S.O Tunnel Rat


1 x Black Widow

1 x Bushmaster Line SI

1 x Warrior

2 x PMI Model II

1 x PMI Tracer

1 x Mahem Thunder Bolt

1 x Kodiak

1 x PMI Piranha TB

1 x Lapco The Grey Spirit


6 x Splatmaster Rapide

1 x Airgun Designs 6 PAK

Load of spares


All of theses items are for sale the6-pak is on eaby at the moment here


I would like to know what the markers are worth as I have had a lot of interest in them and I don't want to let them go for the wrong price.

Good to see you finally made it here Robbo. I moved the thread to ask the experts so you can get some pricing info. I removed the ebay link because it didn't belong. But have no fear, the link was posted by our members in the ebay section a few days ago, as well as your original thread on the PGI/p8ntballr site. I think a few of the members here even registered over there when I posted the link a few days ago.

Thank You.
I had no idea the old classic pumps were still quite a big thing, are there still tourney's running for them?
If so I would like to see some links if anyone has them please.

Is the Thunderbolt missing a valve, or is it just like that?

Here is the skinny as I see it. For some strange reason marker sales are in somewhat of a limbo here in the US. Old school markers that were one time untouchable are showing up in droves both on ebay and here at MCB. Maybe it’s linked to the economy who knows. When a man's gotta put food on the table these small luxuries have to go.

That being said, you have a fine collection of old school goodness. Vintage Rex will give you a fair ball park figure as to the price range but it has not been updated in a while that I know of.

The TASO Collection is remarkable. I say collection because independently they only bring $70-$85.00 US on a good day. I do think as a collective they would bring a bit more due to the fact a true collector could almost acquire the entire TASO pump line in one fail swoop with the exception of the Vindicator, The SC and the Cam0 versions (help me here guys).

The SI appears pristine on my monitor, complete with the much sought after original SI 45 frame. The only problem is they have been going under $100.00 on ebay, unless they have a lever then add $65.00 to a $100.00.

The Black Widow if I am not mistaken is a Razor Back and could fetch a fair price if not for the fact someone here came across several Razorback III's and sold them on the cheap.

Pro Star Labs Kodiaks (Warrior was the budget minded pump from PSL) are a true rarity and I have only seen maybe two in the past couple of years Carter recently posted one FS. You might be able to sell it to Guy Cooper of Pro Star Labs. Sometimes the creator misses his old toys and offers a pretty penny to recover one. He is still in business. I had a similar experience with Ross Alexander many years ago. He offered me good coin for a Bushy SI, I refused.

As for the rest I don’t have a clue.

If I had the coin I would make an offer for the Spirit I have always wanted one and IMHO it was a better marker than the Ghost.


I personally am interested in the stock class feed tube and the quick draw adaptor in the spares photo.

Good Luck and have fun watching the 6-Pack.
