Cant really say Ive had many "bad buys"...
First one that comes to mind is the paint we shot at a scenario about 5 years ago.
... bought 3 cases cuz I figured Id shoot it. Paint was so bad, we calculated about 1 good shot out of every 3-4 shots.
By the end of the day, over half the players had stopped playing and/or left, the field wouldnt take returns on unopened cases, and as we were one of the last groups to leave for the day, we counted at least a dozen unopened cases of paint left in the parking lot/ staging area... the paint was THAT BAD!

VL Quantum, I think I was 12 and wanted an electronic hopper. I think it lasted me a week.

To elaborate they leaked air chopped paint and to make it worse the were the most horrible guns I have ever had to tech.

My guns I have now never really need teaching yet they are so easy to work on..... oh the irony

2 worst buys. First was dye locklids! They ripped my harness like crazy (now ghetto rigged on), still have the pack 9 years later. Second was a diablo wrath! Was awesome when it worked, and that was nearly never.

Tie between:

1) E2 E-Blade. While I love Autocockers, and the E2 was well-made and easy to use, there was no love to be had for an electro-Cocker from me. Sold it and made some good money on it, so no worries.

2) Automag Classic- AGD's quality is tops and the marker performs as it should, but I have no use for it and it will go on to the chopping block soon.

I think I'm doing pretty damn well if those are my worst purchases.

I stopped playing around 7 years ago (planning on starting again soon), but this was by far one of my worst purchases...Found this Matrix for $250, which was a steal at the time...advertised to come with a UL barrel, black grips, black asa, shorty feedneck, and in perfect condition. Got the marker and was ****ing furious. It was filthy, had red grips, red asa, no UL (no barrel at all), feedneck was completely marred, gun was marked up in a bunch of other places as well...Ugh.









I cant remember if I got any money back to compensate me for the barrel at the very least (this was some time in 2005 I think..memory is a little fuzzy) but I ended up putting some money into it, used it for a few months as a back up, and then sold it. This was after I took tons of time cleaning everything and replacing the grips, feedneck, and asa (not pictured)







Was an amazing gun after I got it all cleaned up and replaced some parts...

Indian creek bushmaster, about ten years ago. Paid too much when it was brand new and took too much to run it well. Spent more money trying to get it to run properly.

Whatever it was it worked great after I replaced the o-rings. Was just frustrating. I should've bought the Empire Res I wanted. O well. Stuff happens and you learn.

Worst, eh? Hmm, let's see...

I've pre-ordered an Avratech Falcon, purchased a barrel from Punisher that never arrived and bought high end electros new entirely too many times. Oh, and let's not forget that I was ripped off last year on a Bonebrake 'cocker. That sucked, too.

Any of those will do.

A brand new WDP A1. Worst gun ever, nothing like being in the snake and getting crazy bolt stick every 50 shots.
