I think there is one crowdbuster floating around. there might even have been a couple that made them out.

I would also include stuff from dukie, since he pretty much only seems to sell them through here, and Palmers stuff, which also seems to be more prevalent here than all of the other sites combined.
This is the only site i sell from. if people want them they have to come here. if they come here, they seem to stay. if they stay, they bring add revenue to the site which is good for everyone

As an added bonus MCB has a much lower proportion of idiots than other places. I have very little patience for that lol.

Im going to have to say the iconic factor applies to pretty much everything custom here. Everyhting is just over the top custom. If you want brass outside of mcb your choice is palmers. Come to mcb and you have your choice of 2 currently active smiths that produce amazing creations all the way from scratch body builds right up to including custom stock fabrications. Plus there are at least 6 others that have produced and are currently innactive or only producing as time permits.

We have airsmiths that can, will and have produced amazing off off creations from scratch or remilled exisitng to suit.

You want custom grips? 3 guys have you covered!

How about furniture? there are probably 10 that can cover that!

Pneumatic conversions for electros? at least 3 can hook you up with parts or drop in kits.

Refurbs and rebuilds for stuff that hasnt been manufactured in 20 years? sure! mind you most of us can do that just by opening the parts bin lol.

Want a double barreled whatever? sure, 4 guys do that!

Leather/kydex/webbing goods custom made to fit that custom goodie you just had made? sure! 3 guys here can help you, plus a bunch more that are here regularly.

MCB really is a place where anyhting custom is possible, and where custom really does mean something!

that brings back bad memories. but I parlayed my paid in full in advance vaporware crowdbuster into a series of trades that ended up with me having a nice palmerized KP2. I took a hit, all things told, but it was not a total loss.

i don't think a scammer's gun should be considered iconic for anything.

For me it's probably quantity. I think there are a few people that have had more guns pass through their hands without even playing with them than some people have ever had. There are probably a handful who have conducted trades without ever laying their hands on the gun.

I would split it between a classic nelson (grey ghost?) and a sheridan (kp2?).

In a sport where many people choose newer, shiny technology over learning basic skills and a properly tuning a marker MCB to me is a refuge of reality. We show that pumps and electros can co-exist, and that new players are more than just targets. I choose the above classics for that reason.

Add Rainmakers, Rainman, and the whole concept of elevating any marker, even a Splatmaster.

So by the criteria above it would have to be one of the P series or a Nelspot. Market price for them are still in the affordable range, and that is something a new member is likely to pickup.
AHA! That's the ticket! SHOW ME YOUR UNICORNS!

LIke what Stilgar did!
