Im new to paintball and my friend recently gave me these items, but i want to sell them so i can get some more money and buy something better please tell me how much this stuff is worth.
These is everything i have the co2 tank is good until 2014.
I also have about 3000 paintballs. Please help me and tell me how much everything is worth toghter and individually including the paintballs. Everything works perfectly fine. I know the yellow gun goes like 25 bps. Thanks for all the help guys!!!
Do research and compare prices of other peoples markers to find a suitable price to list your's at.
On the yellow gun it says shocker so is it a smart parts ion shocker? And based on your expertise how much do you think this is worth? I tried looking all over for hours but cant find anything please help!
However I am confused as to why you need "better" stuff. The ion was the standard of speedball for many years, it was even used by some pro teams years ago. The Tippmann 98 was the standard of woodsball and you may argue that it still is. If what you have is working take it out and play, you wont get enough money from those two to get anything "better" than those two. honestly those are great guns. try it out.

keep the smart parts ion and barrel kit. and sell teh tippmann 98 for cash to help fix the ion. unless you play recball or woodsball then keep teh tippmann but that tippmann is an older one. but none the less tippmanns are built like tanks. if you dont need the cash then keep it all they are both good guns.not a bad set up you friend gave you. i would go with a clamping feed neck on the ion the stock feeder sucks.but then again i didnt see any feed necks.
i would use what you have till you really know paintball is something you want to stick with..then upgrade you gear.
thats older tippmann with no feed neck new feed necks run about $13.00
you can tell its older by the slots it has in the front of the marker so i would say $30 to $50 bucks and to me $50 is high. since you can get a newer one for a little bit more used.
the ion with barrel kit you might get $100 for it maybe more since it is a full barrel kit and barrel kits are nice to have. the ion is not complete fix the marker and make sure it works im sure you can get more. i have personaly seen ions go for $75 bucks but thats with board upgrade and barrel up grade. and not a kit like yours
i have a dynasty ion my self with darkheart board,fire bolt along with an all american 2 peice barrel and it works great on the speedball,xball field.
you do have to take in mind that its not the gun its the player. your marker wont do you any good if you dont know how to play and use it. alot of us started off small and worked are way up.
Good luck on selling your gear I'm thinking you can get close to 200 for it all and then if you want you'll have to add about 100 more to Find a decent gun on here I belive 07 egos and eteks are going anywhere from 300-400
Use the ion before throwing more money into gear. Use it and get a feel for the sport and your preferences to decide what your next buy should be. Don't buy a gun that will have to decide your preferences.
