Your not going to know how many shots are on the gun unless it's mid-high end level.
Like most have said they will probably reset shot count and take it out few times before selling and run paint through it to get a reasonable shot count.

First off, what type of marker? Is it something like a Tippmann or Automag that can take years of abuse with little maintenance? Or is it a SP1?

Rebuild kits are available to freshen up a marker so it shouldn't be a big concern. Even if you aren't gifted with mechanical skills, you can easily have a buddy or a proshop do it for you. Manuals are also available online. Learn your marker. Thats the only true way to go about it.

It really should be fine. Really the only thing that ever wears out is the o-rings and possibly the rammer/solenoid.

Most people would just consider 100,000 shots getting well broken in. I know there's at least 19,000 on my SL, and it still shoots like a dream.

yeah, theres really no breaking point for paintball guns. They're not like cars. cars can go 300,000+ miles if taken care of. Paintball markers can go 300,000+ shots and be fine even if they're not taken care of. the only part that wears down is the delrin cup seal(on poppets) and thats like a $3 part and only wears down after a very long time. i had an ion that had 200,000 shots through it and some of the orings were still stock, and it never once gave me a problem. Just use good clean air in your gun (some fields don't have moisture control systems for their cascades/pumps so water can get into your gun) but i wouldn't worry too much about that. Just don't do what kids do and take it apart for no reason (aka. fixing it until it breaks) and it will last forever. And if it ever needs any sort of maintenance and you don't feel comfortable doing it, send it off to a tech. Hope this helps.
