1988 Hornet Pump Marker

My Dad purchased this back in 1988 directly from the guy who made these. We were at a paintball field up in LA (CA) area and he had his prototype there. He got his info and bought one off him. It's seen many battles, but the action is still good, the bolt moves well. I would think that if someone wanted to clean this up, with some new screws/bolts, maybe refinish the grips (or not), then clean up a few pieces which are rusting, replace o-rings and oil up; this gun should still shoot.

I was helping my parents clean out their garage, saw this and thought I would see if there was any market for it. Do you think so? What might it possibly be worth? There weren't too many of these made I assume. It was a pretty badass marker in it's day.

MCB member Bored383 has one he was working on a couple of months ago. Other than that this is only the 2nd one I've seen on the web. It looks to be an interesting marker.

I have wanted one since they came out, I never realized they were still steel on the valve body.

If you could post the other photos on the other forum to show the close ups, may give us a better idea on what the value is.

It actually may not be steel on that piece. It might be aluminum, but i didnt think so cuz it has rust on it. Let me take photos of both sides later today when I am in the garage.

They're not hugely popular, but are hard to come by... I'd be interested in it for sure.

I know this is an old thread. But I cant find the answer to this question anywhere online.

How is the barrel connected? The bought one at a garage sale that was sitting for a LONG time.
