What cocker is this and how much is it worth?

What cocker is this? What would be a fair price to pay for one?

I am not sure what you have there but I am curious.

Would it be possible to get some closer, higher resolution photos?

Is the back block a straight line or is it milled into the frame (p-Block)?

The green silver anno and the right feed suggests mid to late nineties. The milling on the top of the gun body is interesting. It reminds me of some of the P&P guns, (super cockers, cold fusions) but I have never seen that colour scheme from them.

The owner should be sending me some more pics some time in the next couple of days. As for the back block it looks like a straight line, but thats just from these pics.

Looks like a standard wedge back block. Good looking gun.

You wouldn't happen to remember the company that made it would you?

leseee... if memory serves - WGP made all the cockers back then. There were a few companies that took those and modded them (eclipse, SP, PTP). There was no logo engraved/stamped on mine. I do know mine came out of a Colorado PB store and I think the store had the name Avalanche in it or was affiliated with a team named Avalanche from the region.

IS that a Lapco barrel and is the anno matched (or was it done later)? If matched, it would not be my old one. Mine did not have a Lapco barrel.

To take a shot at your question about value - back then, it was $750, but had an AA Unireg. Today, perhaps $100-125. At least I wouldn't pay more than that even if it had high end internals and front block components.
Would make a sweeeet pump though!

Its not a p-block judging by where the pull pin is. Anno isn't reminiscent of Eclipse/SP nor PTP.

Never Mind, The owner hasn't emailed me back once. His girlfriend gave me his contact info and after that I haven't heard from them. I've sent a couple of emails their way too. If he is too much of a jackass to bother about my emails, he clearly doesn't want to sell it that badly. It looked like such a nice cocker though o well. Thats what I get from trying to work with craig's list
