how much would you pay for a gun labeled "untested?"
 
i'm between having paid it and having it shipped here.

i probably should have asked this before either...


i guess it was a gamble.

Depends on the make of the gun? What are you buying? Easy to say "Without Risk There's No Reward" because it's not my money lol.

I suppose it would depend on the age of the gun, how long it's been since the thing has been used, and whether something happened to put it in "untested" condition (ie, an accident.)

I suppose between 1/2 and 2/3 the going rate would be the most I'd want to pay; although occasionally I'll pay more if I'm feeling generous, or am extremely confident in the seller.

Depends on how many parts for said gun I already have.

If the seller is not willing to test or confirm if the marker is indeed in working condition then it's only fair to assume it's not.

Buyers should always take into consideration not just the value of the marker, but the amount of work and money one has to put into it before making it their own.

how about percentage vs a working one in bst? wanted to keep it a more general question.

actually i didn't even know the going rate of a working one when i bid.

a t9.1? i mean it would be a t9.1 if it shows up and works.....

why whats the going rate for those?

I would have to assume it was badly broken and wouldn't buy it. The last time I bought something "untested" I regretted it.

Depends on the model/version. More importantly how much did you pay for an "untested" T9.1?
