I've seen them sell on Ebay for around $20-30.

They were a common field rental gun in the early 90s, so any Mirage's found tend to be in VERY BAD SHAPE. In very good shape, they would probobly be worth $50 or so.

I've bought a few off ebay, just to strip off the Lonestar ASA base, and then resold for parts.

I sold the one I previously owned for about $40, iirc. While they are great basic markers, one of the more maddening things about them is the proprietary threading on the barrel securing knob. I managed to locate one after several polite emails to customer service at Mokal. On a side note, a big Kudos to Mokal....many other company reps/customer service folks could have just as easily said "nope, sorry...don't got em anymore...buy our new gun instead"

I'm the buyer, and it arrived today. I don't see why I couldn't get it running; it's gummed up and needs some TLC (and maybe a new mainspring), but it's essentially rust-free and in great shape under the filth.

If the new Aura is built as well as my Titan and Mirage, it's probably the best stacked-tube electro blowback ever.
