to use or not to use?

The wonderful aspect of spending 24 hours a day bored at work. Wandered upon a NIB 1998 Autococker in Arizona. The owner was nice enough to ship it all the way out to Illinois for me. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the gun except for a bit of rub on the side of the LPR due to the shroud; hasn't even seen air. Can get more/better pictures. Now trying to figure out if I'm keeping it in the box or taking it out any playing. Was fishing around for opinions on PBNation but came up empty.

If you will play with it, keep it. If you want to make some cash, sell it.

I haven't posted on the boards for a while, but I think I'd keep in NIB. Just an opinion. There are plenty out there you can play and not worry about beating it up.

that makes sense. keep it as a museum piece or maybe sell it in 50 years. old 'cockers and 'mags man, the classics of the paintball world.

DONT USE IT!!! Not very often you find one NIB. It's a piece of days gone past, part of history from the back slide of the golden age of paintball.

I put up my axe and took out my 01 cocker yesterday, had several younger teenagers and kids asking what it was. LOL. I understand walk-ons not knowing but was alittle shocked that the "tourney" punks didn't have a clue.

It's boxed up in a very safe place ATM. My 20 year old Phantom is my workhorse. I didn't really expect the shroud to be made of metal (aluminum?) as my first autococker (2k1 RF) had a plastic shroud. There's a very good chance it will never see a field, and I'll hunt down a 2k1 gun for the nostalgia.

EDIT: Would anyone be interested in me scanning the owners manual?

I've never understood the keep it in the box mentality, I would tune it and go rock out old school! You see these collections and they all hang on the wall in someone's den or garage, why? I know they are pretty and some of them are rare, but in the end they were made for blasting faces!

because you don't come across new old stock like this very often. if you want to rock old school, you can do that no problem with any used gun.

Also you could argue that the stock configuration was not ideal, and to make it truly 'blast faces' you need to swap out quite a few parts. I understand your part. I'm not one for wall hangers, all my markers are game guns. I don't abuse them, but they're not pristine.. This would be a great candidate for a display case, maybe with a patent drawing or something like that...

If you want to keep it NIB you should really toss some stickers on it to make it a true 90's era cocker.
