Is this a good price?

Hello all you CCI lovers, wannabe lover here. I was wondering if the price of this package is decent? I really, really, REALLY want to get my hands on a phantom and he says he will do 250 shipped because we are both inside Canada which saves me from any kind of import fee's. It comes with:
CCI Phantom
-10rd. stockclass feed
-back bottle asa
-full length pump handle and 8" cci barrel
-micro pump handle and 6" cci barrel
-dropout changer
-45 framed
-ghost ring
-t stock
-detent ring set
-sticky grips
-2 cci 12 gram changers, one with the silver top needs 12gram seal
Has a few marks on the horizontal feed block and trigger frame.

Pretty decent price, sounds like. Phantom resale values vary all over the damn place. One day you see a backbottle direct feed go for $200, then you'll see an annoed VSC go for $150 the next week. I don't know why, but it happens. I'd offer him $200 and see what he says.

$200+shipping sounds more fair to me. There's nothing particularly remarkable about it, and people tend to prefer the VSC setup.

He won't budge from 250. Is it still a decent deal? I mean, it does come with alot of crap.

It's not bad. Like Murf says, Phantom's have insane fluctuations in resale value.

The question might be what the point of you buying it is. Is this for you? Is it going to be your main "go to" gun. Are you comfortable with that price? Are you trying to flip it?

You're not getting "ripped off" at that price. You're also not getting a steal. You're not going to flip it and make money on it. BUT if you're going to shoot it regularly and it's within your budget and you want it.....what's stopping you?

just like they said. also will that grip style fit you too. since not all hands are same. so it might be a little to big for you. also has 2 short barrels too.

I want it for playing with, nothing more. The problem is I'm a student with a lot of expensive hobbies, so I'm going to wait until I can find a steal. I really want to try stock class. I have a T2 right now and thought stock class looked like fun.

Then just wait and be patient, it will come. I picked up a Green .45 gripped dropout phantom off ebay with two barrels a month ago for $110. I expected it to have some scratches on it, or needing a tune up kit but, she was good to go. Think it just sat in the sellers closet for a couple years.

Pick up a SSC feed adapter for your t2
