Curious, Old Shocker - Worth Anything?



It works too, hasn't been air'd up in a really long time, but it was put away working.

Looks to be a shocker sport. SP made those and usually had semi, 3-shot and full auto capacity. It would be a blast to play with during Rec or Big Games. Otherwise, it's a collector piece. Little shocker (pre 2003) history right there.

$50-75 The older "shoebox" Shockers hold little value today. I dont know why? I see people paying $200+ for a Tippmann 98! I would take the shoebox anyday. Still a very capable rec ball gun. The 11bps limit of the board might hold you back in tourny play. The old shoeboxes came in 3 types. Plain "Sport" is just semi-auto, "S/F" which you have just like Rhino described with the select fire switch and "Turbo" which was early form of modern ramping. The big draw for your shoebox is the vert reg adapter. Was a popular SP upgrade from the factory. You dont see many come up for sale today. Also if that is the original MaxFlo reg your gun is 1999 or older. They switched to the short cap MaxFlo in 1999.

When it was put away, it was fine, although I'm sure it needs to be lubed.

Thats still a bit high for a black shoebox. Look on the bay. Even the fancy splash ano ones have a hard time getting to $100. Just last week a VERY nice 02 VSport Turbo all factory silver ano matching parts & maxflo tank only went for $120! Trust me Im not knocking oldschool Shockers. I just dont get it. People paying $200+ for a Tippman? Id grab a old Shocker anyday. Wait I already own one lol.....

I agree, even on ebay most shoeboxes bring over $100.00 I would price this gun around $150.00

when you lube it you're probably going to want to replace any dynamic o-rings, they get what's called compression set and the material can break down if you let them sit for too long.

Its a Y2K Shocker VSport Turbo, you can still find the gun in the $100-150 range. Some of the ups may be hard if not impossible to find. It has Kapp Dropzone cradle is easy to find but the matching adaptor will be a hard find. It has a Doc Nickle Rip Trigger kit and a Shocktech vert reg adapter both of these would be very hard if not impossible to find. The Shocktech vert adapter, mine is the only one Ive ever seen.

Its a custom made 1" freak tip. I work in a aerospace machine shop. Im a QE, strong in CMM programming. Pretty handy with Solidworks too. I made up the solid model. A coworker/fellow player wrote a program from my model and turned about 50 of these back in 2001. Gave away a few to friends and we sold the rest on eBay. They are long gone. I have seen WhiteWolf airsmith on eBay selling 1" & 2" custom tips. Kinda pricey if I remember like $35.
