It sucks how the market is. But it is what it is.

Talking about a different phantom haha.... but i still refuse to feed into the market. Content with keeping it if no one can appreciate it's worth. Hell i got a great deal.... feel bad for the owner who took a massive loss.

Figure $300 for VSC 45 Phantom for starters
$60 for 86 frame
$20 for phrantom 2 barrel
$20 for cp direct on/off
$100 for bad powder coat
$100 for "custom" pump kit using existing Vert ASA
$30 for freak'd stock barrel
$8 for Zip Strip to remove powder coat
$100 for 14" DW barrel
and $290 for various new parts and anno from Mike vs $550 or so for all new
which in hindsight is a better deal but averaging $250 per year isn't really anything either.
But for years an $1k has landed me a sweet phantom that everyone seems to envy and want to buy.
Can't wait for the Revo. Past experiences has learned me what I want exactly, just can't settle on a color.

Haha yeah... It definitely seems like you paid 225 for that one... Definitely were bragging about it in another thread. On a side note, these markers are only worth what people are willing to pay. If you ask me, 250 for a 300-350 phantom is a nice deal (for the seller), especially a few years later. Take a look at Ego's, you can get an Ego 10 for around 5-600 now.

It is easy to spend $500 on a phantom: VSC w/ pretty anno, T-stock, additional RF body + clear parts and you are right around $460 (give or take a little)...

If we put upgrades aside, I still think the market value of a standard VSC has gone down in the past few years. Phantoms were the gun to have in like 2002. Once autocockers got stupid cheap in 2003-04, and the SS-25 came out, Snipers and CCMs started dominating and open class became way bigger than stock/modified stock.
