Exclamation FINAL ACTION MARKERS CLEARANCE -- please read and share

We are in the process of selling the remaining inventory left to Action Markers to enable some support to still be maintained. The vast majority of parts remaining are still usable and most are still resellable. A person with a good foundation of assembling paintball markers, as well as some ability to do basic machining would be able to assemble finished action markers products and enable the Action Markers community to continue to recieve some support.

All items have already been boxed up and we will be selling the final items in lots and will not be able to break up these lots as they are alrady packaged and inventoried. In the next couple of posts I will be outlining the different items and how many are left. If you have any questions please post it here, and I will try to check up on this post daily for a while.

As a summary the original retail value of the remainder of parts is approximately $200,000 and we expect an enterprising person to be able to make about $35,000 - $50,000 on reselling the parts, on top of any cost of labor.

We will be selling these lots to the highest bidder, and all people that are interested in possibly purchasing any or all of these lots should let me know as soon as possible. If you want to make an offer please use the PM option here, and do not post the offer in this thread.

Happy New Year to everyone!

Wow. Glad I ran into this thread.

How do I buy?

Really, though. Whoever picks up the Illusion lot is making some cash, I'd bet.

I'm not going to start bidding on anything because I guarantee that it would be a lowball. Steve, do you plan on posting these lots on eBay (or anywhere else), or are you keeping it to this thread?

Exclamation

We would prefer to sell this over PBnation -- I want to leave as much profit in these items as possible for the buyer. Seperating these items out and reselling them over Ebay or something like that would be a large profit maker for someone. Repairing markers is another avenue. Customizing AM assemblies another.

If I can sell these lots over the forums here, then I think things will be best for everyone involved -- including all AM owners.

To answer the most frequent question so far (and something I should have clarified earlier) each individual post is a Lot -- the numbers indicate the box number that the parts are in. We only have 5 lots represented here -- and I hope to sell them all to the same place if possible as there are a lot of advantages to the person buying them if they are kept together.

For those looking for an idea of what to offer on the lots -- the full package had an original retail value of about $200,000. A 90% discounted price would go for $20,000. If you could sell these at a 70% discount you could sell them for $60,000 total.

We have found that we were able to get 60-70% value out of items (so a 30-40% discount) while we were still selling them over this last fall. Somebody that is enterprising and willing to work may be able to get 50% out of the lots original value by doing some finishing work on some of the parts. -- that is $100,000.

So we naturally think that this is a good buy for someone. Now why would we be wanting to sell as a lot rather than break it up and make that $100,000ourselves? Well, think in terms of taxes. We are wanting to get rid of the entirety of our remaining inventory in order to avoid any and all taxes on the remaining components. so selling it at a deep discount is favorable to us.

And for those looking for a timeframe -- how about April 15th...


For those of you that are interested in getting individual components -- your best bet at this time is to find someone to buy the lots and split them out. Feel free to advertise this post anywhere that you want. I am not putting it in multiple places only because I want to have a central place that everyone can find my responses. So please feel free to post links to this page to any other forums, boards, websites, stores, etc that you are regular members of.

I'm going to watch this one with interest myself, seeing as my Illusion Pro and Diadem can always use some spare parts - but I ask that no prices be posted in this thread. Any selling/haggling has to be done on PM's only, or site rules dictate I would have to move this to B/S/T. Thanx!

newb10 -- the point of selling them in lots is to help people get more of the individual components. This may be a bit counterintuitive, but the basic premise is that someone that is actively in the paintball selling business will do better at distributing the parts than we will at this point. Also, in a short amount of time we will basically be to the point where will will hire a truck take the whole shed full of stuff to the dump -- and we don't want that for sure.....

So again the message is -- if you can't afford this, but would like to get some of the items out of it, try to spread the word as much as possible to try to get someone (a store owner perhaps?) to buy the lot. It will be a great financial investment for them, and will ensure that AM parts will be around for a while to come!
