pimp + co2 = dead?

so i am about to buy a pimp locally, and he has been running co2 in it. is it dead? he says it has a leak, but has zero paintball vocab and cant tell me where it leaks from. claims a guy at the shop says it is a $5 fix... am i about to get ripped off for $60??

If it's in remotely good shape, $60 is a great price.

Typically leaks are just an o-ring that needs replacing, or an air fitting that needs re-sealed. Rarely is a leak due to anything catastrophic.

Most electro's are not designed to run on co2, but some are. I'm pretty sure the pimp was not designed for co2 use, but that doesn't mean some use ruined it. Typically condensation in the noid or on the board is what co2 ruins an electro.

alright thanks. turns out the leak is just a macro leak, so that will be easy to fix. havent tested it with air yet, but the noid clicks.
