Is this a good deal?

A Tippmann M98 with 12oz Bottle, VL200 & Elbow, Barrel Plug, Squeegy and V-Force Shield gun metal for $400 canadian, which is $260 american.

So far it's the best price within Canada that I can find, but I am wondering if, even with the conversion, it would be cheaper to buy it from a american dealer.

Also, if anyone can tell me what the V-Force Shield gun metal is, it would be apretiated.

The Vforce is a mask, if that is used, it is bad, if it is new it seams pretty average.

Nevermind, I found out... It's just the colour.

So is this worth buying, or should I search for a cheaper price?

No that is a horrible deal. Here is what I think you should do: for 195.00 You get A M98, Spectra Goggle System, 12oz Tank, Elbow, VL-200 Hopper, Barrel Plug, and Squeegee.

That is all from www.bbtpaintball.com

Buy the gun and then go to packages and pick package: Super Package Upgrade. It adds all that stuff to your gun.

The spectra is a great mask and the other things you get in the package are great products, not just traps. PLUS IT IS ALL BRAND NEW. For cheaper then the gun.

Thanks a lot! Now I just need to find out the shipping cost, but it's still the best deal I've found. Might be due to the fact that I've only been looking at Canadian sites, and they tend to over charge due to the conversion. (Which is getting out of hand ).

Anyway, thanks again if anyone can do better than that I'd love to know .

The link that I posted above, is for a M98 custom, not a regular M98. But that is only if you buy it in black. If you buy it in silver it is just a regular M98.
