Thinking about putting my KP on Ebay

I'm at least the third owner of this thing, and it's been kind of bubba'd up over the years, but I've also sent it to Palmer's Pursuit for a tune-and-polish, it shoots well, and I'm thinking it deserves to be back out on the field, not in my garage.

I'm thinking about putting it up on Ebay, or selling it here, but I'm not sure what a good asking price would be/ what I could roughly expect to get from ebay...

any advice?

It currently has a leak down the barrel, but it fires. The wood is in good shape, the hoses don't leak, and the BB the original owner got shot with is still embedded in the stock (left hand side, near the back)

I have more photos, these are just to give an idea of the gun's state of being.





This looks like a plug epoxied in place to seal up an unwanted air fitting hole.




Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me...

Where does that air line go in? Is it side tapped or does it go in the bottom?

Whatever....leak down the barrel is an o-ring problem. If you have a valve tool and some seal you can fix it. Pretty simple really.

side-tap, exactly opposite the epoxied bolt. I suspect someone tapped the wrong side or something.

any idea what size o-ring I'll need if I take out the valve? Is there a modern gun using the same ring by any chance?

You can get a re-seal kit here form Mad:

You can get a valve tool from Titus here:
Celanis Paintball or Pm him on here.

What is that gray spot on the valve tube? Is that a plug that high up the tube? What is in the end of the valve tube(bottom tube) ? It does not look like the original screw in plug.

Looks like maybe someone tried to tap it for a dummy 12g maybe.

Open class KP's don't fetch a ton.
Looks like some custom work; quick strip, site rail, the bottom line is obviously custom, cooper-t bolt.
Does a standard hopper fit in the elbow?

If its leaking $150-300 depending if someone is looking, I would list it in the BST here first and see if you get any bites.

When/if I sell it, I've got all kinds of photos. The solder looks worse on the other side. One of the previous owners may have been a plumber. High 200's is about what I was thinking...

the gray spot is a bolt covered in epoxy, like someone tapped it and then sealed the hole. The end of the bottom tube is a clean black plastic plug.

Then there has been some modificantion on the valve train. It is supposed to be 12g. So somewhere in there someone pluged the face plug.
I would love to see pictures of the internals, but alas you have no valve tool do you.
