I seriously think your first mistake is not to indicate how much you are looking for.

BT-4's can vary in price (some can go from $65 and as high as $600, if not more) depending of the additional items and mods to the marker. On top of that, you have a custom paint job: Was it done professionally? This is also really hard to make an offer without this info.

People are also weary of offering without having a broad ballpark of how much the seller is looking for.

IMHO, way too many sellers get their "knickers in a knot" when offered a low ball bid...

Good luck selling

Some might not take you serious since your join date is january of this year. With a electronic trigger and rip clip I'd list it on ebay starting at the minimum you would take for it. So if you want atleast $125 for it you could list it starting at $149 with free shipping to lower 48 states. It would probably cost you about $15 to ship it(ups) cross country. If you do list on ebay make sure your auction ends around 8:00pm pacific time on a (saturday or) sunday so get the casual weekend multi time zone trafic.
There are so many people with markers in the b/s/t section that say they need this marker gone tonight need money bad and it will be a 3 month old thread. If they really needed it gone they wouldn't accuse everyone of lowballing, and sell it for almost anything they could get.

From what I can see, that is the original factory paintjob! I sold one just like it last year for $130 + shipping. I would post a price and let it go if someone got close to what you wanted. The BT line is still climbing the ladder with the younger paintballers, but eventually, it will be at the top for the woodsball/scenario players.

Good luck on your sale.
