AKA VLM autococker - two of them

Update: 9/7/12 I've had numerous pm's about buying the vlms as-is. There wasn't much wrong with them two years ago. The black one needed to be re-timed and/or the lug (which the sear catches) needed to be adjusted up or down. The blue was fine.....just the seals in the rock reg went out.

Since they have been sitting, more seals may have hardened/gone bad.

Give me a few weeks....I need to get the rental unit filled and then I can get to working on them......hopefully it will be easy if no other seals have gone bad.

I have 2 vlm's. Blue and black. I originally listed them back in 2009-2010 but never got around to getting them running because we had a 3rd kid.

Anyway, I really really do plan to get them running. If you look up threads started by me, you'll see the old listings with pics in the archives. I hope to have them running in a month.

These are not Merlins. They have the smaller pre 99 valves.

Cut and paste the above in your browser to see the old posting.

I'll try to work on them in the next 6 weeks. Kind of busy at the moment.....trying to get a house ready for a renter to move in

The author of Rich Dad/Poor Dad says your gun is a "Doodad".

Option A) If you have a 100k home (fully paid off) and its value doubles in 10 years, $200k, 100% profit.
Option B) If you take out 50K from your home, buy a 2nd 100k home and rent it out (rent covers mortgage). Value of homes doubles in 10 years, from 200K to 400k. Your original 100K has now made a 300% profit. Leverage is a powerful tool when used properly.

I'm interested in the blue one, but what prices are you looking to get for each?

I really don't know what they are worth since they are not running.

The main thing is to get them running....only then can I fairly price them.

I know I would be bummed if I spent a lot on a marker and found it would take a lot of cash to get it running.

I'll post videos when they are both up.

Tnx, Tim

The guns could be worth $300 or more if properly tuned and in good shape. Photos wouldn't hurt in this thread.

Last, there are plenty of people in Hawaii that ought to be able to help you set them back up. Otherwise tech-by-mail might be something to consider.

Let me know once you get these up and running. I'm curious as to how they look. I may have an offer on one or both.
