Check out my finished PPS HT

Here it is - my finished Houndstooth Centerfeed.

As you can see it is completely nickle plated or chromed out. I have installed a 7 ounce antisyphon tank with a specially milled SP on/off (Complete with PB Maxx logo to remove the SP logo) and had nicke plated locally. A special addition to this marker is the nickle plated bottom line with custom straight rail. This addition (done by Brad and polished by myself and JKW of TechnaTrigger) allows ASA to be mounted with no visable screws as well as aligning the tank straight back. The result is a very comforatable shouldering. The marker was freshly hand polished and ready for the killing room floor.

Check the pics:











I may sell it soon, and if I do - what do you think is a fair price with all of the additions and chrome work?

That is one very shiny tank, unfortunatly i have no idea how much it would add but im guessing maybe a $150 bonus to the guns value.

Shiny... Nice!
Looks very pretty- especially with the tank. I love shiny stuff.

That's a beauty, although not my style. Here's an estimate on sale prices.

Houndstooth w/Nickel highlites - $340
Palmer stabilizer - $80
Bottomline setup - $40
Tank - $30

If you find someone looking for just this setup, you should be able to get this much, maybe more. Elbow grease and polishing may add a bit more to the value of a gun (depending on what a buyer is looking for), but usually not as much as the time and cost put into it. For some, all the nickel extras and centerfeed are a minus.

I've found that once I start upgrading/customizing/restoring a gun, there is no way I'll get a return on my investment. I only do this with ones I'm going to keep.

Good luck........

Thanks for taking the time Walker - I am thinking 400 - 450 would be a fair price to start at.
