Dye Reflex

A guy were I work is selling me all of his old paintball gear, and in it is an old dye reflex. It looks like the one below. There is some wear on it and I have no idea if it actually works yet though. How hard would it be to fix and is it worth getting? What would I need to do to give it a "tune up".

Dye Vickers are no different than any other cocker, so just some basic orings, lube, and timing should be all you need. They are definitely popular guns. If it's in good working condition they usually bring in the $350-450 range depending on quality.

So I finally got it. I am trying to decide if I want to keep it electronic or make it back into a mech? Thoughts?

The one in the pic is mech.... Is Yours drilled for eyes? If so making it mech won't really add any value.

This is mine. It already has a board. I haven't taken it apart yet to see if it has eyes but there isn't anything plugged into the eye portion of the board.

You dont have to take it apart. The eyes will be on the other side. If they are there you will see a black bank going from the grip frame to the detent area.

In that case converting it back to mech will add some value. That being said unless you got the gun for like $100 the whole thing will probably end up costing more than the gun is worth. The frames usually go for $80-100 and they usually only come in chrome or all black, so you will have to get one anodized of you want it to match. Now if you are going to keep the gun and are not worried about resale value then you can do whatever you want. There are no real advantages or disadvantages of an e-cocker or a mech cocker.

Well I do not plan on selling it. I was closing with the previous owner last night and he said he might still have all of the original parts

That would be nice. If you get all of the original mech parts, and plan on keeping it then it's really just up to you whether to keep it electronic or not.

Your pic isn't showing up for some reason.

If you get the parts, I and many other folks would be happy to give some pointers on getting it working again. Original dye pneumatics parts are a bit quirky to work on but usually work good when rebuilt.
