he is 21, graduated with me back in highschool, i know he isnt a scammer, but i really dont want the thumper back either! haha
i think you should start by explaining to him that the thumper works different from any other gun... and put it back together in front of him next time you meet up. chrono it with a helmetcam.

i traded a guy off craigslist a spyder electra '09 for a guitar about a year ago ... he went home - took it apart and called me back saying he disassembled it - and broke it and wanted the guitar back ... i offered to look at it and help him reassemble it -but it was severly damaged due to his prying on it with a screwdriver, ect - and he got *nasty* when i told him no way on a refund - he broke it - its his now ...i told him - he saw it shoot- he shot it at the field- and it was working when he took it home = his problem if he took it apart and broke it......
did i feel bad for him - yup - is it my fault- nope
- i offered to refer him to a local guy i know that could repair it - and kept parts in stock and id split the cost but his response was to call me and curse me out

- dude this wasnt your fault - id offer to help him reassemble it and see where the problem is - but if it was working when it left - thats on him ......

Well.... you're going to have to see the guy and interact with them at the field. Add the fact that you traded a tempremental gun for one that obviously works. I'd personally take the higher ground and either help him fix it or trade back. You obviously have no obligation to do so though......

If you gave full disclosure about how tempremental the Thumper is then i think it is really up to you
you obviously know the guy and know that he is not trying to scam you.
i would offer to help him fix it.
Depending on how well you know him and how good your friendship is would determine how much above and beyond you go.

lets say your at the bar...

You trade a guy you know a condom for a beer.

He takes himself on home and calls you the next friday saying "hey bro, That condom you loaned me broke after I took it out of its wrapper and used it"

Would you really trade back a beer for a used rubber?
