What am I looking at here?

Hey guys,

These are on my local Craigslist. Im completely oblivious to mags. and have been looking into getting one. These just popped up and I have no idea what im looking for. Seller doesnt seem to know exactly what he has either. He is asking $650 for the lot. Can anyone give me any more information?

All I know right now is one is an Eclipse splashed mag wit a dye single trigger frame and the other is chrome.. ha. pictures below.

Looks like a complete chrome mini mag (splash kit), chrome micro mag, and a bunch of spare parts/bolts/valve halves.

I'd try for $300-400, but he probably knows what he has hence the 600 price tag

Can you tell what valve those are? or if they are lvl10 or anything? I honestly dont know my *** from a hole in the ground when it comes to mags.

So these arent extremely rare pieces? Nothing I cant live without?

Neither are level 10 bolts. The chrome one is a zbodied mag. puts backspin on the ball, rare. Each gun is easily worth $200. So $650 for the lot is right on the money. Not a good deal, but fairly priced.

Price looks ok... you also have to realize that in his spare parts, there is pretty much another complete mag there in pieces.

Eclipse splash kit, semi rare. A plus is its complete and in great shape
Z body, rare
Flatline air system, perfect for if you grab an RT valve for either marker

Its too bad its all as a lot.

Id go in @ $550, you could part out some of the extras and probably get half your money back depending on what you sold...

this would be a rough guidline of parts prices you could sell
Frames $25+ ea
Rail $25
Minimag body $35 +/-
Barrels $15-20
Extra sears/bolts/misc items $5-15 each piece

Just by that you made back 1/2 your $550

In the top picture the top two bolts are ANS venturi bolts, the one all by itself is a Toxic Toys Venom Bolt....titanium with a nylon venturi core.

If you plan on selling it to make a profit it will be tough if you pay more than around $350.

Classic mags arent in much demand.

I think your high on that price GH , last classic I bought I gave 20$ for
The splash may be worth 150 if someone is lookin for one
The Z body is rare , but they are crap ( unless someone is crazy to get one )
The cut frames are worthless , the CF one is worth 10
The trigger shoes & the 12 grammer are worth as much as the " spare parts "
The CO2 bottles are a dime a dozen
Go to AO & look at what stuff is sellin for ( if it's sellin !! ) then make up your mind

I dont think he was looking at this stuff to flip? I just threw out a thought that if he really wanted the markers, he could jump on it around $500... then with the extras hed be recieving he could gain some of his money back, to bring him into the green on it.

With some prices ive seen (I do frequent AO) that zmag could be parted easily for $200... The full splash kit in good shape could go for close to retail back in the day (what was it? $149 or so?) people ARE looking for the old retro looking stuff, and the "crazy" stuff that came and went years ago.

The hardest thing youd have to move is the valves really... but I see all the triggers there for the frames, extra sears, rail, body, rebuild kit, reg back, bolts, dye boomstick... if thats an old screw apart two piece its still worth good money itself....

I think we are all just looking at this lot in different perspective... youd buy it to make money, Id buy it to have two sweet guns and sell the rest to get some $ back...
