wait a sec thats not the way i hear it ...... they way it has been expalined to me by a friend and his dad who own a store.... they have a set number they cant sale a paintball gun under.... now they can mark it up as much as they want but to stay competitive they have to stay close to what other people are selling it for they make a considerable amount more than 10 dollars per gun ... just my 2 cents

This is true, that is the MAP price. You cant ADVERTISE a gun for that price, thats why alot of times you will see PM me for the best price from dealers on here.

The map is the least a store can advertise the product for. You can sell it for what ever you want. I can sell a Tippmann for a 1$ if I was crazy but I can't advertise that price. Get it children?

Why hasn't this whole thread been deleted yet?

Honestly, someone who actually is involved in industry should be responsible for moderating this forum.

I work at a meat market and our most popular steak is 7.99 a pound. i get it for 2.49 a pound. yea guns cost alot but look at what your getting, great milling, fast boards, efficency. you get alot for how much you pay or what they could make you pay.

10 bucks a gun, no lol

Not sure on alot of guns but i know ego dealer price is 1,000
