    Damnit! That deal you missed out on

    This just happened but figured I can't be the only one with that story of a deal you were just a little too late to grab, what's your missed opportunity?

    He posted and I shot him a message within 15 minutes, it was already pending



    https://portland.craigslist.org/clk/...519922153.html

    In case it gets taken down

    "I cleaned out a storage unit and these were in there. I know nothing about paintball or what these are worth really yet until I do some more research. Prefer to sell as 1 lot but may consider selling individually. Make reasonable offer"

    Hot damn wonder what offer he got. The most recent one around me was on CL. Guy was a painter. He was given couple phantoms and other parts. Wanted 100 for everything. I think I message him within 10 of post. Was already pending.

      Idk but my offer was pretty low just because that's all I currently have on hand, yeah that's definitely a bummer on that phantom

      My best one that I actually got was my automag

      Minimag
      X valve
      Hyper frame
      ULE trigger
      Bunch of associated parts and a few other upgrades
      $120

      The only thing I have left is the x valve, everything else got traded around to build mech

        Oh yes, more than once. The one that hurts the most was a few Dye Reflex cockers along with other cool gear for something like $100...they said "oh my husband just gave it to our neighbor, sorry!"

          Never any angst when I miss a deal..... The times I've gotten one balances out.

          The last one I got was a working EMag, for $200.......

          Nothing that really sticks out to me. Missed out on a couple of nice parts here and there.

            Just missed out on a minimag with retro valve and other equipment that seemed to be in great condition, for $20. Anyone here pick that up.

              Was on ebay about a year and change ago, it was a left feed boston clamshell twister autococker in a black, white, and red splash and a dynasty series ion for 400 buy it now, ended up paying 460 after fees, I paid for it, it should have been mine. About 6-8 hours after the sale I see a post on one of the cocker facebook groups asking if anyone bought it, they screenshotted the sellers ID handle. About 2 hours later I get a message from the seller saying that he's sorry and that he's refunding me my money because someone offered considerably more than what I had bought it for and he relisted it. I posted the guys ebay messages on the cocker facebook group and the seller got bombarded with fake bids, the gun ended up getting bid up to 10k a few times. But eventually it ended up selling to someone, tim from paintball tech rebuilt it and posted a video on his youtube channel and I havent seen it since, no public posts or any pics of it out there, If I ever do find out who did snake it away from me, I owe them a sucker punch/never buying/selling to/from them if I've done so in the past. That one really sucked at the time.

                That was kind like here, in the Sac area. Guy had listed a nice water pool type cocker, seemed all original and good condition. Listed for like 120. I happen to see right after it posted, replied. He said yeah come by tonight to get it. I would be driving two hours.

                Couple hours later he emails back and says he I have a guy offering 250 for it, can you match. I said nope. He then replies ok it seems lots of ppl want it and he is getting bidding war. I told him good luch I'm out. I think someone here did end up picking it and had to send to to Docs to get it going.

                That was the biggest screw over I've seen since the cocker revival occured

              $200 for a Belsales Evo X on Ocala craigslist 15 years ago. Nexus sig series with a grape soda anno for $400 On Cincinnati Craigslist 12 years back.

              Dudes agreed to sell them to and the went radio silent.

              Most Craigslist deals that don't materialize don't fret me much. Those did.

                Kapp Flame cocker with a bunch of stuff about an hour drive away. Busy day at work, so couldn’t drive to get it. Even offered the guy more than asking but he wouldn’t hold it.

                  Got outbid by $1 on one of those donation auctions for a Spyder AMG LCD. I didn't really care cause I got enough projects. But an AMG has been on my want list for a while.

                    Several years ago a guy with a nice collection of custom & PL Bushmasters was letting most of them go. I messaged him about one in particular & we made a deal. I told him I’d PayPal him the next day but before i got the chance i get a message from him saying he decided to keep it. Disappointing but i could kind of understand even though we had a gentleman’s agreement. No hard feelings. That is until i saw someone else posting pictures of the Bushy saying “Look what i just bought!”. Needless to say i was extremely irritated, especially when i wouldn’t have expected that guy to do something like that.

                    There's been many I missed over the years. None really bother me. Most I can't even remember. Although some are more memorable.

                    Here are a few

                    $300 Eclipse Impulse Aurora

                    $200 Karta Emag

                    $100 CCM J2L

                    $150 Working Metadyne Thumper............oh wait that was more like dodging a bullet.

                    there of course are many more. But if anyone has been on forums long enough they have misses many and likely gotten many. I sure have gotten awesome deals.

                      It was a cheap lot of old school stuff. One mini mag, and 2 pgp pumps. I got super bummed when he stopped responding because I wanted to give one of the pgps away for walmazs.
