What's a C3 worth these days?

I have a possible chance of getting several Tippmann C3s for dirt cheap, but I might have to buy the lot. Generally speaking, what's a C3 worth these days, and is there even anybody that wants one?

they aren't going for much at all. I've seen people try and price them NIB at $200 and honestly get offers for $75 or less. They were/are a neat concept but with the various issues they had they were an abismal failure on Tippman's part

why use a fancy word like abysmal and not spell it right?

they aren't that terrible... honestly I know of a bunch of markers which are less reliable or accurate... but I guess not Tippmann standards. I had one of em and set it up really nice, then it went missing...

I would be interested as well, depending on price.

Very niche market. Be careful investing a lot unless you mean CHEAP because you might be sitting on them for a while.

I always thought they were cool, and I would probably pick one up if it was under $100
