pure opinion thread

So ive had my pimp since 2005 when I got really big into speedball at the ripe age of 15. I used it quite a bit through high school playing tournaments in the summers, but the sport has died quite a bit and i don't play speedball as much, only did once last summer at friend's team practice. I've never had a problem with the marker except i did blow the solenoid once but evil's great customer service fixed it quickly.
Its been a solid consistent marker for me, but is it time to part ways with the pimp? I know their value is at a low lately, so do i run it into the ground and when it breaks part ways, or get as much as i can for it now? Will it ever become a collectible and maybe gain value or at least stay at what its value is now if kept clean and operable?
My plan this summer is to build a cheap CO2 beast spyder I can use on occasion for when I play woodsball tourneys or small games with friends. So is it worth keeping the pimp for maybe getting used once a year, or say goodbye to the old friend and pick up a modern speedball marker if/when I get back into it?

Keep it. You won't get enough selling it to bother getting rid of it.

When I stopped playing, I kept mine for the sake of nostalgia. I can tell you, it was well worth it. You could sell the ups which, as you stated, are the most valuable part of it. It doesn't need a fancy regulator to look good on the mantle in five years. I'm sure you could get 50% of the gun's value just selling barrels and the reg on BST.
I tend to be nostalgic toward my guns, though.

I wouldn't sell it either. Keep it, and use it when you need to. You won't make any kind of real money selling it now anyways.

You'll only be able to get about $75 out of it, which is 10% of what you most likely paid. Just keep it. I love Pimps and for the sub $100 used range you aren't going to find anything to compete. The features on this gun beat out any Spyder on the planet. You won't find a:
*Microswitch
*Two piece barrel
*Locking feed-neck
*Board
On any $100 Spyder.

I really just don't play enough anymore. And air is pissing me off. I can get it at my fields and in town but its a 40 minute drive compared to a 10 for CO2. And if I keep it, then what its just gonna go down in value. I see the breakdown like this
Pimp w feedneck- $75
PMI 68 3000 tank- $50
16" stiffi- $40
14" cp- $20
14" freak w/ insert- $20
revolution eyeforce hopper- $20
cp shorty reg- $40
silver kila detents- $20
TOTAL- $285
Let me know if you dont think this looks reasonable. Also could part out the critical trigger but i remember that being a ***** to put on

I don't think anyone would seriously buy this gun for $285. I know thats a decent price break-down and maybe just maybe you could get somewhere near $285 if you parted everything...but it's doubtful. Again $285 will get you a Ego07/08, DM/PM series....which is more popular now.

I know it's a hassle but maybe you get get something for it but definitely not $285.
