it's got a barrel extension, a scope, and a non-tank stock. figured it's based on automags so it's fixable, and even if not i can still recoup some of the costs by selling off those accessories.

160 shipped, did i dun goofed?

If it doesn't work fixing it shouldn't be too much of an issue.

For me it would depend on the marker itself. For something like an Automag I'd probably pay pretty close to going rate, probably $25-30 less than going rate. You only have to take into account the cost of a few orings. For an electro I would have to take into account that potentially the board &/or the solenoid need to be replaced along with wearable orings.

A lot of it depends on how comfortable you are fixing markers. With ICD stuff, I am quite confident that I can fix whatever is broken, but I won't pay going rate for it.

If you can recoup most of your cost with the bonus parts, I would say it was a safe buy.

At this point I just assume every used marker I buy whether tested or untested is going to have some little issue. I don't care what the reason its being sold for, baby on the way, lost job, wife's making me, or too many markers, if it was 100% and like new in a box and worked as advertised or reputed it would be being hoarded or being played with.

I almost exclusively buy "needs work", "played in condition", "scratch and dent", "sat in my attic for 5 years", and "untested". Those are the only honest sellers.

As for the truly "is brand new in the box and I would depreciate its value by testing it" unicorns I'm guessing the owners are just looking for someone less risk averse then them. They truly know the risk and higher then normal liklihood the thing could gas up, fry the board, spit out o rings, seize a solenoid and have to be sold at a huge loss. Even worse by fixing it they could scratch the 1 of 1 anno or strip the threads of a rare body. Stuff like this just hangs on walls and finally the owner can't hold back and comes to the crossroad of playing with it or selling it to the next hoarder.

For everything you got it's a decent deal. Going rate for a t9.1 is maybe about $180, pending what comes with it

There's at least two kinds of untested.

"I used to play with it, but no longer. It may leak." Those are fine with me. It will leak for me eventually anyway.

"I bought it from someone else and have never seen it work." Those have been a problem when critical parts are missing, and those parts cost more than the rest of what you bought. It has been made right whenever it happened, but it detracts from the sale on both ends.

Maybe there are other kinds of "untested"....

I guess there is the "I took some parts out for another marker and put this one back together without them. I have been unable to test it."

It is too dependent on gun type to come up with a generic percentage. If it is a Nelson pump like a Phantom then have at it at sticker price as only so much can go wrong. If it requires 15 proprietary wear parts that I can't find, or might have a blown solenoid (etc) then the loss is considerably more. Now, if Camille came up for sale as untested, or seriously broken, well... I wouldn't buy it because that would be receiving stolen goods and punishable as a felony. But you get the idea.
