Looking for Vintage WGP Markers/Parts

Hi-

I got into paintball back in 1990, when I was 11. The Cocker was in development and right at the point of release at that time. The Sniper 2 (and original Sniper 1) were king until the Cocker showed up!

So, as I build my collection, I'm looking for some of the following vintage WGP markers/parts:

* Sniper 1 (serial number below 4000 ideally)
* Sniper 3 (STOCK--NO UPGRADES!!!)
* Commando (California-Style ideally)
* Ranger Pump (California-Style ideally)
* Auto-Ranger (semi-auto Ranger with Nelson Auto-Cocking Kit)

* External Auto-trigger kit (the more the better, as mine are all breaking)
* Vintage stock WGP barrels
* Vintage T-stocks, and L-stocks for the Sniper 1, 2, and Autococker
* Internals (springs, hammers, seals, etc.)
* WGP Nelson Semiauto Conversion Kit

* In addition, I'm looking to get my hands on a new/mint-condition Dye Ultralight Cocker, circa '01-03. Gunmetal Gray ideally. Here's the exact one I wanted to get on Ebay recently, but the price was unrealistic: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...2496&rd=1&rd=1

Only interested in markers that are in good-to-mint condition, and original-stock (non-customized) format is preferred. I don't expect to get them for free, however, I'm not paying the GNP of Iceland to get them, either!

Post back here, or email me at therealjakester1 at hotmail.com if you can help.

Thanks.

Thanks for the welcome, folks...what a great site! Thanks for pointing out that I posted in the wrong forum, as well. My bad! (Seeing as how I'm a mod on another set of forums, I feel extra foolish!) So, now I know!

Welcome!

That's quite a list with a few pretty rare pieces. It's definitley doable but unless you are willing to lay down some serious scratch it may take awhile.

Have fun on the quest.

Welcome to MCB! Here is one from your list (It's not mine!) The Tommy guns don't come up very much but when they do they almost always stay in the "Family".

Sniper Tommy Gun Style

Thanks for the welcome!

I'll pay decent, provided the marker is worth it. Like I said, I don't expect it for free, but I'm not going to get bent over a barrel either.

Tugboater203-

Price is a little high, but I'm investigating. It's definitely up my alley... Thanks for the link!

You should make an offer to the seller since that auction did not result in the sale of his marker. Maybe it was the insanely high price? The seller may take you up on your offer. You won't know until you ask.

I already did, and he never responded. I mentioned to him that yes, while he may have paid $1300 for the Cocker new, the value of it is half that...MAYBE. I offered him a generous price (seriously!), but never got a response. He never relisted it, either. Bummer.

Thanks for the advice, though.

Well, I've acquired the Thompson-Style Sniper 1 I wanted, so I can scratch that off my list! Who else has something on my list that I'm looking for for a reasonable price?
