Paintball purchase regrets


I know it is rare to regret a paintball purchase but it does happen from time to time. What is your purchase regret and do you still have it? It can be a marker, mask, part, entramce into an event etc.

I have two first is a used SFT shocker I bought maybe 08that never worked. Second is an autococker project I bought recently not realizing how much used autococker parts are to finish it.

KP2 that was in rougher shape than I thought. Has sat for over a decade waiting for more free time to fix it right.

And aside from the crowdbuster chuckle.

And maybe my racegun, it taught me that electros are not for me.

Haha yeah.. crazy how that happened. I miss the days when a rare-ish slider was $50.

I don't regret any of the guns that I bought (mostly because I haven't kept many of them) but I did regret trading a 95 sniper for an SP Eos. That gun was such a pain in the ***.

Trading my Typhoon to Drum for a Vector. He returned it to it's roots and had it put back into Hurricane format, then sold it to C6quad. Unfortunately C6quad won't sell it back to me.

Bought a bunch of parts for my cci phantom, A new .45 grip, ghost ring site and an 11 inch stock barrel. Sight just got in the way, the grips were way too big for my tiny hands and the stock barrel just didnt balance well with my air set up... it was all a huge bummer

My only regrets thus far are Temporary ones, and usually involve over paying for something. I still own them though, and use it as a learning experience.

I know, it's blasphemous, but hear me out.

It was my first mask. My first marker was a full on mag fed setup, a maxtact TGR2. The mask did not work at all with the gun, it was a great mask but just couldn't be more wrong for a tank stock marker. I also felt that for the protection it offered it was too big, when my next mask (VIOs) had just as much in a smaller package.

Some Winchester branded Zapp piece of junk I bought off a friend in middle school.

Also my Bob Long Millennium. Don't get me wrong, it is the best Spyder I have ever shot, but its because I gradually threw a ton of money at it over the years I have had it.
