What Really Grinds My Gears

So I am selling an RT mag on that other site for 300, I receive a PM offering 100 from a guy who is selling and has sold a couple of Ego11's and Geo2.1's. When i ask him to make a real offer he says gl with getting 300 your blocked. Why is that those laser gun shooting agglets cannot understand that old guns can be worth more than their 2 dollars a minute depreciating space dildos. Its so annoying, when these new players think that every old gun is worth 100 or so dollars and if you try to ask more your crazy. Sorry /rant, really PO'd back to my Jiminy sweet potato chips num num num.

It gets annoying when it goes excessively the other way to. Sometimes when I'm looking at buying something I'll see a beat up, mismatched, old marker, missing most of the original parts, that the nooblets will want 2x or 3x the reasonable price for and then they'll blow up if you point out otherwise.

Half the time it isnt even ID'ed correctly.


Edit: Case in point, Karnivors!!! What the heck, are they made out of gold or something? I see karnivors all the time going for $450+ covered in idiot wrench marks, mismatched pneumatics, and missing a good portion of the original parts which have been replaced with low quality "upgrades." But then a really clean looking orracle nicely matched with nicer parts will barely pull $300 on a good day lately.

You know what really grinds my gears? When I try to offer this guy $100 for his mag, and he thinks I'm joking.


Haha, sorry.

Who was it that made the offer?

It works out when they get a hold of something nice, and sell it for cheap when they don't know any better. I got a "broken" '05 Racegun Half-Block for $140 because of this. What was wrong? Dead battery...

He is trying to sell a chopped up Classic for $120...

The Racegun was on Trademygun. I even left it for a day hoping someone would buy it before I snapped...
