Yup, it seems like the insulation breaks down over time causing the ignitor not to spark inside the chamber. Mine went bad just hanging on the wall.

They go quickly at 75. I think the market would bear 125 for one in good working order...

The problem is that I've never seen one in good working order. I bought one from Mayvik and it shocks me whenever I fire it.

Its funny, a few years back you couldn't buy a broken one for under $160.
I bought mine in a bag. then they price started to drop. but recently they have climbed again. I just got one for a customer who was willing to pay close to the original $200.

as for them not working, I have yet to see that. mine works great, the one I bought for the customer was all dry so he purchased all the o-rings ( i think) and we rebuilt it . His shoots great. All the ones I ever sold in my store still seem to be going strong.
I think people who own them just don't understand how to tune them.

My only gripe about the C3 is they went through the trouble of putting a wire detent for double feeds and didn't extend it to do roll outs.

Last I heard of a major shop (albeit online), they were selling for $60 iirc. I regret missing out on that.

-That's what I'm worried about. If I buy 'em, I'll probably have to take the lot, and then pay to get it shipped over to me. Depending on the cost of shipping- it'll be a fair sized box- I'd probably have to charge $90-$100 each just to break even.

I don't think they have boxes, but supposedly they have loaders and barrel bags. Don't know about owners manuals, tools or spare parts, but unlikely.

Supposedly they'd been serviced by Tippmann- just fixed or actually refurbished I don't know- and then put into storage and unused since.

I have no parts or spares, and actually very little direct experience with the C3, so I'd be reselling the extras as-is, where-is.

I haven't committed yet, and may pass simply because I already have too many things to try and get done before the end of the year, but if it happens, I'll let y'all know.

You could always just buy one, let it sit on a shelf, and rebuild it in 15 years during another MCB restoration contest!

I don't think you'd even be able to make your initial investment back if you're paying $100 each.
