For a collector, they are fairly desirable. They had a pretty menacing reputation back when they first came out. 1989 or so? They were never designed for paintball, for nearly every field had a player or 2 that owned them. (You know, those rich kids that had to every every latest thing).

But for a player, they are useless. No modern field would allow them, and ammo is next to impossible to find. And much of that no longer works from sitting around for 20 years. There was also a reload kit, but thats also tough to find. There are lots of threads in the airsmith section talking about converting to a modern blowgun caliber, etc.
