Nightmare SB Value?

Just got this, and discovered I don't really like it:



It is leaking rapidly down the barrel right now, ie emptying a 12 gram in seconds.

I haven't seen many of these for sale, how much would be reasonable to list it for?

I fixed all the leaks now, shoots fine but is way louder than I expected.

Haha I was joking. IIRC vintagerex has a recommended listing price as $200-300, depending on condition.

And yeah, with a solid barrel, it will be loud lol.

Not so much the barrel as the hammer bounce with these.

This has crazy hammer bounce, it looks like the main spring was cut though. Would a firmer spring reduce bounce or am I thinking backwards?

I was told by a pretty smart dude (Glenn Palmer) that the key to reducing the bounce on these is to lighten the hammer.

I actually forgot to look there, that is more than I expected to see. Maybe I really will hang onto it and let it grow on me.

They're pretty cool guns, but they're called 'Nightmare' for a reason; mad hammer bounce, difficult to service, limited upgrade path.
Find an old Crosman stock and slap it on, killer little carbine-like stock gun.
