Thanks for the input.

Now I'm just trying to find more stuff out about the marker itself.

Once you get it, pull off the shroud and get some pics of the pneumatics.

It's a graphic that's applied, not anno like some people think, so the fact that it's in such good shape is impressive. Plus the matching shroud, which I've not seen before.

Aesthetically speaking, I prefer sliders, but the hinge can definitely get that thing shooting faster... I'm interested in what's up front under the shroud.

Very nice looking gun... I've always wanted one, super jealous right now.

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “Is this not too generous to these Canadians?”

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”

I did okay on it for price due to a package deal in which I was able to offload the second marker (which i also wanted, just not as badly).
These things are pretty hard to price, from what I can tell. The last few I've found (over the last decade) sold for $250ish... But they were FBM ones, not Spanky, and definitely not as cool. I paid more than that, but am okay with the price due to rarity. Not sure why FBM (and the like) are such a hard sell, it's pretty unique stuff. Too each their own, I guess.

Will post Pnues. When I get it. Probably a few weeks, has to make it through US customs.

Theyre hard to price because FBM is a little known company from what i hear. Ive only seen a few for sale, and i got one of the Cobra bodies for my project, and it has that unique look to the build, but i dont think id have picked it up if it were more than 225

Spanky/FBM aren't as "collectible" because they sold body kits, not complete customized Cockers. They were relatively mass produced and were fairly common at the time, especially the lower priced options like the Teardrop bodies.
I remember checking their website back then and it was always basically the same 6 body options. At the same time if you went to BBT's website they always had nutty custom gun pictures to drool over.
The huge issues with the tubed bodies (Fishbone, etc) really soured people on their products and was their downfall.

Thanks for the input, Maggot. I can't speak on the value going up it down, but based on what I've seen lately they're higher than they once were!

Those body threads we make on r/autocockers101 are not the end all be all. Just observations and basic info chewy and I had.
