Unloading my ATS AT-85 Cache

Hi Everyone, I'm brand-new here so please bear with me if I'm not following proper protocols on this forum and my lack of technical prowess. I haven't played paintball in close to ten years so I've decided to liquidate my gear which includes three ATS AT-85's and accessories, as well as some RAP4 gear. The first is actually a recent purchase off eBay which to be honest was a bit of an impulse buy since I don't plan on ever playing again. I guess it's an early one in a TAGLINE hard case; it comes with the velocity adjustment rod, air tank (probably expired) with shoulder butt-plate, forward loader, an owner's manual, and some instructional sheets; but the magazine appears to be non-functioning. I don't know if the gun leaks or whatnot, but I do have some original oil, O-ring, and screw kits which should take care of any issues with any of the guns. The second AT-85 is a tactical set-up with a tactical magazine (all black), 16" barrel, forward loader, an M-16 style handle, front sight, and retractable shoulder stock. The third is a tactical sniper-suppressive fire set-up, with a long barrel, forward loader, tactical magazine, fake suppressor, bi-pod, Bushnell red dot scope, M-16 handle, front sight, and retractable shoulder stock, long velocity rod, and a soft zippered carrying bag...this thing looks freaking awesome! It comes with a standard length barrel as well with an M-16 front sight for CQB scenario play...all barrels have the unisizer attachments. Also included is a RAP4 tactical vest with an air tank pouch on back (with expired tank), 2-clip pockets with forward loaders, and a side-arm cross-body holster with a RAP4 Sig Sauer P226 marker... there's also a full woodland cammo BDU & size 9 black combat boots. There are some other extras like a quick-release air hose, small air tank (great little spare), hopper-adapter magazine, two guide-plates, M-16 retractable butt-stock wrench, paint balls in .68 and .43 caliber, etc. I know this stuff is rare and desirable, but I'm not sure what it's worth or how to go about selling this lot...I prefer to sell it all in one shot, but I'd like your feedback. I have lots of photos which can be viewed here: https://s1152.photobucket.com/user/lgatanas/slideshow/

Welcome to MCB.

I think the best place to start would be to send a message to lordkyleofearth. He's one of the ATS experts around here. It's hard to guess value without pictures, but if you message him and ask for his email address, I bet you can snap some pictures with your phone and email them over easily. Then go from there.

Thanks for the shoutout Raw!

There were a couple of largeish caches that sold off last year, so pricing/demand is a bit deflated from where it had been. Generally, functional AT85s seem to pull $200-250ish with 'for parts' markers coming in lower, depending upon condition.

Things to catch in the photos:
Serial Numbers (let's people see if it's a newer or older base)

Magazine interior (specifically if it has the feeder paddles or if it's the original version without)

Unisizer/Ring set (There is a color variation on the unisizers that denotes the minimum and maximum diameters. Newer ones are darker and better for small caliber paint. Older ones are lighter blue and better if going the FSR route)

Inside the marker, take a picture of the pneumatics (specifically the cycle assembly where the shorter piston thing sticks out. It's the easiest way to spot HPA vs COČ)

Guide plates (you need at least one working plate for a functional marker)

In my experience, the folks here are more enthusiastic about the family of markers, but they sell better on Facebook. Caveat: it's post Christmas so folks are probably broke. You'll get more interest if you sell them separately.

If you can confirm if there are leaks or not, it will greatly help. Feel free to ask any other questions; I'll happily talk ATS stuff all day

If it were me, I'd put the stock barrel onto the 'sniper' one and sell the 23" barrel separately. Those are pretty darned uncommon these days. I can't offer advice on what they actually sell at, but the last one I remember having a price fixed to it was $125 (may have sold for less).

The older marker (in the case) has a first generation magazine. The little metal pin was the precursor to the flip up winder. I'm going to guess that it's a co2 valve, although it may have been upgraded. Only way to know is to open it up.

Thanks Lord, the 23" barrel was cut at the 'skinny' part so the suppressor will fit onto it...no, I didn't do that, it's how I got it!!! I'm not real comfortable opening up these things because I don't know what I'm doing and I barely remember how they work anyway! I used to get them worked on by a guy named Loud Thunder from Northern Command Paintball, but that was a lifetime ago it seems.

LT sold me my first ATS!

They open up pretty easy. Two screws at the top, one on each side. There is a small hole on the right side, just above the trigger. Insert a small Allen key to depress the button and the two halves will slide apart.

Here's a link to my photos: Library Slideshow by lgatanas | Photobucket
Though I didn't take any shots inside the guns, I did list the serial numbers earlier. The older 'TAGLINE' is a time-sensitive sale; the guy I purchased it from has agreed to take it back, but it would be better for everyone if I just sold the thing for $165 as-is including domestic shipping. Thanks...
