If it's an NME LE, and it's in perfect condition, $250 at MOST. A reasonable price would be $200...

If it's not in perfect condition or it's not an LE, then closer to $180...

They are nice markers, but they don't have much of a value these days...

The worm is tryng to sell the most upped NME I've ever seen and he is only asking about $300. The NME's $150-$180 and LE's $175-$225.

I wouldn't pay over $200 for any NME, despite it's upgrades.

^^^^ I agree... $300 is to much no matter what ups it has... As much as we all love them, they just aren't worht much. If System-X was still in business it might be a different story...

It's a nice gun no doubt, but I still wouldn't pay anywhere near his asking price for it, and if I did buy it I would play with it and keep it for a while. Chances are you're going to lose money on a gun like that if you buy it, so just get it and enjoy it because there probably aren't more than a handful of NME's in the world that shoot as good or better.

That guys is better off parting it out. He would likely get close to what he is asking from the non-NME parts. As a whole gun I bet it doesn't sell at that price... Tim Foolery, I'm pretty sure your the only one that would pay that much for it...

I wonder if he still has the stock parts? The HPR and LPR would sell quick.

I love NMEs to, but not enough to pay more than they are worth... I could see doing $250 for it... He's crazy asking $350 - 400 for it... He needs to just part it out if he wants to sell it. Sell the none NME parts to the Timmy crowd, and sell the NME parts to us...

I'd rock it if it had a 10bps legal board. There's honestly nothing about that gun I don't like.

Can NME's accept timmy boards? If not, does the stock board go down to 10 bps? That may help you sell your NME clemson, people tend to ignore guns that aren't 10 bps legal (especially if they can't be put there via aftermarket board).

Both Stock WAS and Predator boards have tourney legal 10 man. And no they cannot accept them. They accept NME/Alien baords. There is a shortage of boards for them though. Predator, WAS, and Virtue are the only boards available. Hopefully TJS can figure out the shocker board thing.

The Evil RAM isn't an upgrade imo...

No offense, but replace the front block, LPR, and HPR, maybe add an eigenram, maybe add an alias ram sleeve, a high flow barb and hose kit... Then you can start saying it's upgraded to the max...

A predator board, laser eyes, evil ram, and a feedneck aren't going to get you past $200...

NME's are amazing high end markers, but:

There is no support for them (System-X went out of business)
There are no great after market parts for them (you can't get a good board)
They never really caught on with mainstream paintball (Could be because System-X went out of business shortly after releasing them)
There is little demand for them (most people that want an NME HAVE and NME or in my case three)

Because of these factors they have little to no re-sale value.

I appologize, and don't mean to be rude, but this is just the way it is. They aren't like an older Timmy where there is still a huge following and a highly upped older marker can get you $350 - 400...

I mean look at an amazing marker. The Angel 1 is a very nice modern high end, and it goes in the $400 - $500 range... You can't expect an NME to fetch close to a modern marker... it's 4 year's old!

Actually, I've got bad news for you. A1's go for $300-$450 haha. Unless well upped (magno'd/fly'd) or PL, you can expect to get around $350 for a stock used A1. With that being said, the chances of pulling anywhere near that much for an NME are slim to none. The only backing the NME had in tournament paintball was when they (SysX) sponsored Avalanche, and that didn't work out at all.

Like he said, I would suggest getting rid of the evil ram. It is most certainly not an upgrade and in my opinion is so freaking ugly. At one point I had the most upped NME I've ever scene. basically it was just my Ripper build with a NME LE body instead of the ripper body so it doesn't really count

for the price of a NME, you can't beat it, to be honest. I paid $200 for mine and it's the BEST $200 i've ever spent.
