2 Crossman 3357's
 
Got these from a friend who's not into paintball. His uncle played way back when and had these in his closet. Very good condition, some scratches here and there, but overall nice pieces. Some of the speed feeds have some gunk on em...my best guess is nail polish to hold the balls in? Come in the original boxes as well. Two cylinders included.

Edit: Forgot, one of these, the piece that holds it in isn't very tight, so it sometimes breaks open. I think it's just a spring, going to mess with it and see if I can fix it. Still works, just a little annoying.

I don't have any 12 grams to test these with, but I was told they hold air fine. Gonna try to get some 12 grams this week and test that for sure. Cylinders all turn though. I did get a big bag of paint for these as well...but considering it's ancient I have my doubts it would should through it either way haha. I'll check around and see if anyone selling that new .50cal paint.

In case you're unfamiliar with these,
THESE DO NOT SHOOT .68CAL PAINT!

$250 apiece

Cash is preferred but open to trades.

I may have one more up for sale, I got 4, keeping one, waiting to see if my local store wants one for their collection. I also have holsters, belts with 12 gram pockets, and old-school masks to go with if you're interested. Pics of those coming soon.

I would be interested in one of these in the $150 range, let me know if your willing to drop that low.

I'm surprised 4G010H3R0 did not jump on this sale already!

to help sale:
ball detents seems pretty beaten up (I guess they're almost in the "gooey" stade) and will need to be changed.
Cosmetic states looks kinda good (for used vintage guns), especially those cylinders!
If you're willing to part one or 2, I might be interested.

If you're OK to ship international, I'll relay your offer to a big french forum (these 3357 are pretty rare in Europe).

About .50 paint, it's quite easy to find: in the worst case, just buy some "flying colours" paint (for kid's, spring-powered, paintball guns).
Tomahawk, Dark Sports, Celtic Paintball, Diablo and Spyder/Kingman are all producing .50 paintballs.
I think Nelson produce it too, but they are not really into EU market so I'm not sure of that.

Hope that'll help!

I upgraded to "The Big Damn Hero" so no more 3357's for me (I mean unless I come across one for a stupid low price)

Lol I use to have a ton of these.. fun lil shooters but Im sticking with .68cal paint from now on.
Used every caliber ive come across.. .38,.42,.50,.62,.68.. .68 is always the most reliable,plentiful and allowed everywhere so :-p.

I would say those ball detent on those is toast. A rubber gasket washer(cant recall the size atm) works good to replace these though.
Cosmetically they look fantastic. Can read the serial numbers and all, the "teeth" on the cylinders look good too so thats a plus.

Free bump cause I came across my name on this thread:ROTFL:

Interesting posts, considering I allready bought the 2 shown, over on the Nation several weeks ago.

They are allreay taken apart and being rebuilt/restored.
