Shipping cost doesn't mean anything. Total cost for you is the total cost for you. So don't get hung up on what category the cost is associated with.

II Sports used to be a big chain. Like all paintball its super small now. I imagine them just clearing out old inventory as a hobby. Rummaging through stuff for your 4 dollar part to save you shipping doesn't fit the model. They don't have the manpower. More orders will be screwed up.

Nothing personal. They just have a system and don't really care about these old inventory parts flying off the shelves.

It sure doesn't feel like it.

I guess paintball stopped being fun when we used to have like 5 big retaillers online and now we only have 1 and a bunch of way way smaller ones.

Nah, it stopped a long time ago, the monopoly is just aggravating the effect.

Well, I'm glad they're still around. I just picked up a couple NOS 32 Degrees asa's and a couple Extreme Rage automag fore grips from them a couple weeks ago. All these parts are almost twenty years old by now, so to me it was pretty cool. I can't expect every company to deliver Amazon rates.

II banned me from buying off their ebay store after they sent me the wrong thing. (One yellow piece of macro line and a single straight fitting) instead of a micro line kit that showed two black pieces and two swivel 90 degree elbows.

I’ve never been shocked to hear the stories that come from buyers.

USPS has increased all their shipping prices so it just gets passed on.

i bought a few of the "box of random" stuff. All listed as "broken/for parts"...
i thought, how could a body be broken? When i got it, the top tube was out of round. lol
another, the back of the top tube was squished. Same with the front on another body. Trigger frames had stripped screw holes and what not. And then everything thing else in the box was just filler. just garbage. Feedneck LED lights, paper survival guide, a ton of .50 cal bolts and parts, and just random useless stuff.

i think they saved everything from repairs over the years and are now dumping everything.

1st box was 35
2nd box i offered and they accepted 25
3rd box i offered and they accepted 15 or 10 iirc

just junk in those boxes

they HAD some good stuff a few years back and there was a splash anodized grey body spyder that slipped through my fingers. Still looking for it. I was able though, to pick up the E77 and E88 markers.
