need help to see if sounds true!!!

this is from the website i have been looking at for this gun:

"Ok,
so any of you that know me know that I shoot Bob Long Guns. Our team is sponsored by Bob and we get from time to time opportunities to buy rare or limited markers from them.

So right before Chicago (June of 2008) I bought a Vampire Closer. I needed a back up and here's the scoop. I have NEVER shot it, played with it, or even aired it up........few have seen it, no one has EVER shot it.

Sale PENDING to UTURN

Sounds sad I know but I just NEVER had a need for it and it's sitting in my house just begging to be used. Ultimately this is my loss because brand new this marker pushes $1500. I'm letting it go cheap at $1100.

I was told at the time i got it from Matt at BLAST that there were only 3 of these assembled by BLAST and put up for sale. I don't know if it's true or not but there are no numbers on the gun to verify this. What I do know is that the back cap on a Closer ONLY comes in Black unless it is custom done.

SPECS:
NEVER SHOT
NEVER PLAYED
NEVER AIRED UP!!!! BNIB!!
4C Eyes Equipped
Yakuza M8 ryujin board with a plethora of firing modes
S Class roller trigger
(extra Closer Trigger)
3 piece Players Barrel Kit. .89 and .91 backs - one red, one black with a white 14" tip
BL Cam Drive on/off
BL Grips
EXTRA O-Ring Kit
EXTRA Dow 55 syringe
Box and M8 manual included

Ayone who knows me will tell you that not only do i buy all my guns brand new, I am also very meticulous with maintenance AND I am also a BLAST field tech"

please tell me what you think of this if it is true of not it is on a field forum i commonly visit.

There were a limited amount of the Canadian Closers made, so it's possible.

The only thing that sounds odd is that he got a Closer from Bob. Bob would not discount the Closers for teams, so he had to have paid full price for it.

With the new accent kits though, anyone can take a dust white Closer and make it a Canadian/Vampire Closer. He probably did this option since the Canadian Closers didn't come with any black backs.

$1100 for any used Closer is ludicrous! Nobody should pay $1100 for Dust White Closer with Red accent kit on. Not even one with FANGS. lol

No PE kit? Blahhhhh.....

tokay444: I really don't believe the guy. He bought the marker in June, NEVER AIRED, NEVER SHOT, NEVER SEEN IT - unbelieveable don't you think? I mean that is my opinion. And why would you need 3 boards? Hahahah (laughing at the guy selling the gun!)

who cares?? if anyone wanted a vampire closer they could just get it anno'd...

Just because the gun is unused doesn't mean it still holds the value that you bought it for.

Something is only worth what a person is willing to pay for it.

Between the Vice and the Closer, or any Marq for that matter, it would be a toss up. Both will serve you well. Most of us that has used Bob Longs will tell you that both are equally good.

The post is mine and the gun WAS mine. I posted this October 5, 2008.

Actually not true. Call BLAST, ask for Matt, ask about the Biting Rabbits....When I got it the backs were only available in black except for the Canadian and Vampire. Now you can pretty much get whatever you want.

My mistake. There are 2 boards that came with the gun. The M8 and The Yakuza that I got from Will in Chicago.

Hey, can't blame a guy for trying.... I had far less in the marker and sold it for less.

I could not agree with you more BUT some people will pay for what they want irrespective of price.

I 100% agree. Marq > Vice



By the way the gun is sold. The guy that bought it from me is a team mate and has yet to pay me 100% for it. Joe, consider it gone!
