ID please: Montneel and Hi-Tech Beast?

Hey guys. I recently scored these on Ebay. Any additional details and most importantly a value would be real helpful.

Montneel? Maybe Super-Z?



Serial is 2665. Somebody etched some stuff on it... Skirmish USA 996003
Has a threaded barrel
I aired it up and it shoots great! I suspect it is shooting hot, maybe 350 or so. It does have a VERY slight pinhole leak near the barrel. Some people probably wouldn't mention it as it is hard to detect.


Hi-Tech Industries Beast?



Says Hi-Tech Industries on the sight rail. Mostly composite parts. 1 piece fixed barrel top tube. Brass lined barrel. Really smooth pump stroke! I aired it up and it shoots well, it has a slight leak down the barrel that starts and stops at random.

Thanks everyone!

Not a montneel. The Threaded barrel gives it away as an NPS icon or a Boxer. Not very well regarded for their quality. I have little first hand experience, though.

More good info. Thanks man! Anybody have a best guess on a value of these? They will probably be seeing the BST forum soon

Had a Beast a few years ago. Plastic gun. Has some brass parts and a brass-lined barrel if I recall correctly. Cheap, but not a bad little shooter.

So the Beast was a clone of the Nelspot Challenger II?
It also had a plastic body and one-armed brass-lined barrel.

I've never owned both at the same time, but yes, they're pretty darn similar.
