What to do With Ramrod Barrel

Say "Car RamRod!" Say "Car RamRod!!!"


I have a cocker-threaded Ramrod barrel. As anyone who has shot one knows, they're pretty much useless on the field but do have some interesting collector/novelty value. Mine is in 90% condition and is complete with the super-long extended barrel plug.

I have been offered money for it, far in excess or what I paid for the thing originally.
I had been planning on donating it to the EMR museum at Spring Castle.

So here's the question, in two parts:

Should I donate it or should I sell it?
If I were to sell it, what is its approximate fair-market value?


Thanks for your time.

Thank you for the humor!!!!!!!

It might not be bad to have in the museum (AL is there a display for interesting but completely useless barrels yet? )... but if you can get good cash for it it wouldn't be a bad thing to sell.

Captain O'Hagan: I swear to God I'm going to pistol whip the next guy who says, " Shenanigans."
Mac: Hey Farva what's the name of that restaurant you like with all the goofy s*** on the walls and the mozzarella sticks?
Farva: You mean Shenanigans?
Mac: OOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Thorny: OOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

I think they're cool as anything.
That's just me. Then again, I have a strange definition of "useless" when putting something to use.

As for donating or selling, well... that's up to you. Want to put it somewhere for future generations to gawk at and show off an interesting piece of paintball history, or make a quick buck? (Or make Azzy happy and swap him )

I bought one on Ebay for $10 last year, so that's what it's worth.
It's loud as H , so the intimidation factor is there. It also has a nice grouping, I can hit 20 of 20 on a 12 foot pie plate at 60'

So long as it got a nice tag under it saying "Donated by XXX, AKA Trojanman of mcarterbrown.com"...

$ disappears really quickly on your next project, but your name could be on the wall of EMR's museum for years...

Cocker threads are the most valuable, so maybe a museum would be better off with a less expensive threading..or maybe they are best off with the most expensive threads.

Its funny, we must have all seen all those APG adds with the ramrod barrels in their.

Was it made by crossfire?
