SOLEX 007 Needs Work $275 or Trade
Hey everyone, this has been for sale in the paying member's section for a few days and I haven't even had a nibble on the ol' fish hook. Up for sale to the general masses!
As much as I hate to do this, I am selling my Solex 007. I've had this marker since February and it hasn't seen the field once. She needs a little work, however.
The frame could use a fresh coat of paint, and the valve's pierce pin has a nasty leak. To combat that, I picked up a back-bottle ASA, but now it leaks from the powertube
The pierce-pin valve body is the older style with the pierce pin that cannot be removed. Therefore, I won't include that valve body. The back-bottle one will still be included. Contact Bacci for a replacement valve--he probably has a whole bunch.
I did have to file some of the Phantom feed off so it would fit with the back bottle valve. If you don't like how it looks, you can just take it off and use it how Nellies normally are fed.
Basically, you need to either replace the pierce pin, or just swap out the springs and run it as a back-bottle gun. Other than that, it's a pretty cool piece--very unique and a true one-of-a-kind.
Due to its condition, I'd like $275 shipped to the US for this piece. Previously this has been for sale for $350+, so I think this a good price for something that only needs $30 put into it, at the most. Sorry Canadians, but unless it's a really cool trade, I'd like to avoid the headache that comes with the US Postal Service Customs department.
Trades I'd look at are VSC phantoms, Nelspots, brass guns, or cockers. MAYBE mag-fed stuff, but it would depend on what it was. Preferably something that actually works
Detailing the worn off paint in front of the trigger guard:
Worn-off paint on the edge of the slot where the 12-gram is inserted.
Thanks for looking!

Going to go ahead and bump this. Thought I had a trade squared away, but the guy hasn't responded to my PM's since Tuesday morning, and he's been online frequently since then.
If he gets back to me, I'll take his deal and close the thread.
