To Karni or not to Karni......

I come to a crossroads and need some advice. I have the chance to pick up a Karni with Kaner kit for around 300 but........ Ive also been thinking about building a pump cocker, maybe using a cheap prostock. So here lies the question, buy the Karni or dump that money into a pump???....hmmmm......I like playing with both pump or electro but the idea of owning a Karni seems better to me.... Suggestions??????

buy it for 300 and sell the kaner kit?

karni will hold its value better than a pump build

I started on a pro stock. What are you looking at specifically? Is it complete and you plan to go open class? I've assembled / disassembled my protocol with numerous different parts. Never let me down, it's great as a fail safe, not so great for resale value.

Karni. Harder and harder to find. Will hold it's value.

Pump you can always find plus they will only get cheaper

depends what year. 04's are all over they place and usually go for $100-$150. same with 03's. its the 05's that are a bit hard to find, and tend to go for more than $150.

karni's are well worth it in the end, but if it turns out you dont like pump then you just wasted your money.... I can say from owning 3 karnis that there is no greater joy after you get a nice pump kit of course, btw if it comes with the p-matics you basically have a 2 for 1 . A pump and a electro, yes its a cocker but the best cocker ever made
