Luckiest Break/Best Deal You've Gotten?

Stopped by the local paintball shop on my lunch break to pick up some pods and macroline, and I got to talking to the owner about my mech Ion project. He said he had a bunch of bodies for sale and, when I looked at them, they didn't interest me. But I asked if he had a stock one laying around (since I'm building a sleeper); he went to the back and came back with (what I thought was) a stock red body and stripped trigger frame. Told me to just take it to get it out of his shop.

Got back to my office and looked closer, and it's a frame with trigger, on/off ASA, stock body, breech, firing can, donut, bolt, eyes...everything.

I've got several barrels at home, I have all the electronic guts I stripped out of my soon-to-be mech...the only thing I'm missing to have a complete working gun is frame screws and a feedneck.

What have you stumbled across/gotten from people for really cheap/nothing?

I picked up a male PPS Stab for $20 and I'm currently debating on a super cheap Angel Speed.

I found a $20 bill in a freak insert that I think I bought over a year ago. All I know was that it was in my collection of stuff and I know for certain that I didnt put it there. My balls were getting stuck for some reason or the other. Checked my air, it was fine. When I unscrewed the barrel and checked the insert, I noticed something in there. It was Jackson staring at me.

Non quite as good as some of you but my finds that I've been happy with are a full SS freak kit with case for $80. A yellow crono for $40 and a nexus ram with Pe qev's that I traded my sto ram for from my old local shop.
