.62cal Line SI Bushmaster - very rare

I've got a Line SI Bushmaster that I picked up in a trade for a banana triggered Carter Buzzard about 7yrs ago. Looks like any other '89 Line SI Bushmaster, and is in really good condition w/ minimal (but some) pump handle wear. This is very much a collector's gun, and is super rare since most were re-bored for .68cal when the .62cal-craze didn't take off. It holds air and shoot fine, but again, really is more of a collector's item, and shows it (ie: low/little playing wear).

I've listed this in the past but have received no real interest so I'm not wasting my time w/ pics on this listing (it looks like any other '88-'89 Line SI Bushmaster) If you're really interested in buying this Line SI collectible message me, and I can post or send you pics.

I've only ever seen one other of these for sale and it sold for around $375 on ebay back in 2011. So I'm asking $325 shipped/paypaled w/in the US. Price includes about 400ish (a little less than a full 500 round bag) .62cal Nelson paintballs that are about 3 years old but still appear to be in decent shape.

I will ship internationally, just message me if you're interested and we can discuss shipping cost.

I've always wondered about those: Is it just the barrel that's reduced to .62 cal, or did they reduce the breech bore and bolt tip to match?

I suspect the latter, else the gun would regularly chop.

Hey Doc!
That's correct, the barrel, breech bore and bot tip are all the reduced diameter. This made them relatively easy to convert them to .68 caliber by simply boring out the barrel/breech and then swapping out the bolt. From what I've gathered, most were eventually converted which is why we don't see them vary often. Pretty cool piece of paintball history.

Thanks for asking!

I remember the first time reading that those things existed, hoping that it was literally like a 7/8-scale Bushmaster. Like everything was scaled down by the same proportion that the .62 was under the .68.

'Course, that was when I was young and had no sense, as opposed to now when I merely have no sense.

I'd be interested 'cept cash is way short at the moment. Anything you might be interested in trading?

Doc.

Nothing in particular, mostly just because I donít really get out much and play much these days.
