It's a high profit margin for them...
They buy for $40, sell for $100, it's a $60 profit. Then a year later if you decide to keep playing, you end up selling it back to them for peanuts and buying a high-end marker, and they sell your SW1 used for $60 this time.
If you bought an eNMy they charge $130, but they pay $85 for it... It's only a $45 profit for the store.
If you bought an actual Tippmann, they charge $160 having paid $120. That brings in only $40.
