HP- I've tried that as well, but so far i've done pretty well. I tend to be very cautious though, and have requested 3rd party in a couple of cases. both suddenly stopped talking to me for some reason after that. I had one though that I found on pbn, sent an email and never heard anything from them. over a year later I get a response and ended up buying the gun off him.

I had a felloiw do the same thing with a MicroCocker a couple years ago.
I was wanting to make a MicroSniper, it was a perfect deal he had no pnuematics for it.
So all it needed was the conversion, glad I didn't order the CCM pump kit before I had the marker.

I found a guy with an AFT collecting dust...he told me he'd grab it out of his friend's closet, then I never heard from him again. Oh well...

since this is about micros and holy grail type quests. I owned 5 before I finally got this project done. It seemed doomed every time i got a micro within a fortnight something around the house would blowup get sick or something else and I would end up having to sell the micro to cover the costs. On the up side WWA came out with a superior pump kit in that time so the project took a turn for the better.


Now she is done and NOT FOR SALE! Well Not for a while anyway.

Wow... that's a really sweet Micro!


If anything, I'll pickup a regular black MicroCocker, and just have it re-anno'd something sweet. Still..., that particular RED Knight FX Anno holds a particular sentimental value in that I had one at one time.

Most never respond, and some jerk me around with the "I think I have it somewhere", and never get back. I am very patient, and eventually hit the nail.
I havent been ripped off yet, but do realize its extremely risky sending money to completel unknowns. THANK GOD I like obscure old blowbacks that are not very valuable.

I have NEVER gotten a marker this way. I am patient - and spend the market value for markers I really want.

Every now and again I stumble into a good deal - but mostly I force myself to be patient.
