Exclamation Buying a gun, need advice

Hello, I'm new and this is my first post.

My buddy across the way used to play PB with me but recently quit. he has:

Spyder electra titanium- http://www.actioncenterpaintball.com...-Titanium.html

Empire Magna Drive Hopper

Hpa tank

1 10 inch barrel

2 12 inch barrels

some paintball pods

Brand new mask

he's asking 250 and i think its a bit high.
I was think 200-ish

Any advice please?

really it depends on the tank and the mask, if they are crappy, thats way too much, if they are good, thats a decent price

if you can find out the size and pressure of the tank and if it is in hydro or not that would help

also the brand and model that the mask is

Do you think 250 is good if the mask and HPA tank are good? or 200?

Just because they are good doesnt mean nothing
Brands and sizes mean alot
For ex proto has a switch and a axis both are good but the axis is alot nicer
For ex crossfire makes many tanks say the 48cu they have 3000psi steelie and 4500psi carbon fiber

He said the tank is by pure energy at 3000 PSI and it is in hydro.
The mask is a proto switch EL

if the marker is in really nice condition, $100 tops, tank, $40 tops, you can buy new ones for around $50 - $60 mask is $30 new

brand new all of that stuff is around $230 plus a little for the extras. he is trying to sell it to you at what he bought it for new

i say $175 max and id try for $150

Hey thanks alot everyone i bought the gu for 225 after hey gave me a better tank and mask. I figured out the hopper was actually a really nice one. It's an empire magna drive, but its a special edition with halo technology, It goes for around 80.00

I really like the gun, going out for some speedball/ghost-town on sunday!

Thanks to anyone for commenting!!!

All Magna's have Halo technology, they were the next loader in the line after the HaloB and before the Prophecy.
