Yeah, sorry it doesn't help the present situation, but I am always surprised when people go there. I can see how it happens though. I hate PayPal, but incessantly use it. Good luck, and if you can, tell that guy to take a hike.

Should be in the Ebay pictures, right? It's on the side of the marker where a WGP logo should be, but lazer engraved rather than stamped. I wonder if the "scratches" go right over it.

Tippmann Pneumatics HQ, Tiberius Arms HQ, NXe HQ, PB Sports, Paintball USA, Chase PB, PB Plex, Ultimate Warriors... There are probably more.

Probably not. I'd guess he's not lying, per se. He probably gassed it up with the hammer right on valve and it leaked down the barrel (there's not much "everywhere" for a Sniper to leak from). He fieldstripped the thing using a pipewrench and a destroyed the finish, and it still leaked. Then someone on the field showed him how to cock it first, but his new toy was destroyed.

Don't give in and send his $ back and accept the gun back. That is what he wants. He might have harvested internals, swapped parts from another gun, or a host of other things. It is obvious he is bull ****ting anyways. It is a sniper. I don't know if he is a scammer, or just a beginner who doesn't know what he is doing, but I don't trust him...

I had this happen with a monitor a guy bought said the back light was broke and sent it back. When he sent it back he said other stuff was wrong and he fixed them. Ebay told me to refuse delivery of the package. Long story short if you described acuratly and put no returns your in no way obligated to refund his money, especially since he admitted to tampering with it. Even if he opens a case you will win trust me. But be prepared for negative feedback.

i just had an ebay guy open a file on me saying he never got the package. tada! i have tracking still. upon checking i was able to show he got the darn thing A FULL DAY before saying he never got it. nice. then he goes on to say how it was not as advertised and that there was parts missing...
i thought he never got it..?
i kicked his butt in the case, so he opens a new one...sigh
then he leaves profanity in my feedback section...and i had to get ebay to wipe that too.

needless to say a few calls to paypal and ebay got me the case. im now pushing for his ebay account being closed for good. some people are just out to get ya.

^^^ exactly why I absolutely refuse to sell or buy anything from eBay.

Also, its pretty obvious he's lying when he used the phrase "leaking from everywhere". Everything after that just doesn't make sense to me.

You should win this case no problem

I'm trying to think of where a Sniper could leak from...

Here's my list in order of likelihood of occurence.

1) Down the barrel (didn't cock)

2) Between tank and ASA (cut the tank O-ring)

3) Macroline fittings (bad cut, mashed O-ring)

4) Between regulator and ASA (cut the regulator O-ring)

5) Between ASA and body (blown ASA O-ring? not likely)

6) Between pump kit and body (blown O-ring)
