Original Boston Express (twister) W/RF kit!!

I'm really testing the waters with this. I'm not in any rush to sell this beautiful piece of history but between Boston re-releasing the milling pattern and the fact that I have no place to display this I figured it was time to think about getting it a home that would appreciate it for what it is.

I picked this marker up a few years ago, when I first opened my paintball shop, not knowing the full history behind it. Thanks to a few people from Boston Paintball and other owners I've come understand this is a little more than a paintball marker, its also a bit of a time capsule. I can't give the full history but I believe 7 of these were made (body and kit together) 4 went to Europe and 3 stayed in the states. That is what I was originally told but my numbers could be off, either way there is no denying its relative rarity.

Shooting video and yes this is the marker:

Little more history:

The reflex kit works, however since shooting that video I have broken the actuator arm that goes to the automatic on/off. I haven't found a suitable replacement. The 3 way has also been replaced with a tickler, and the valve which was originally a Rat2 replaced with a AKA tornado. I have several spare parts for the marker as well. Marker shoots great as a regular Autococker and if a replacement arm can be found or made the reflex kit is absolutely amazing.

Looking for $2000 for this piece of history. I know that's allot but these don't come up for sale virtually ever. I'm sure I'll get more lookers than takers so Thanks just for looking and please no trades as you can see in the last photo I still have so much stuff left from owning the store I really don't need more its cluttering up my apt.

One of my old teammates from NEDD New England Devil Dogs used to own 1. It has been many yrs since I have seen it but since you are from New England that could very well be it.

I bet Boston Paintball would try to help you with the broken part. Apparently they are still very into the autococker scene and still support all their old Twisters. You have a great looking gun there. You should post it on www.mcarterbrown.com if you haven't already.
