is this a good deal?

hey, my friend is offering to sell my his 4 year old 98 custom for 75$, it has a gta x chamber, properly installed, a gta dble trigger, installed, 12 in sp aa barrell, and its silver in color, i dont think he's ever oiled it, but i think he's only put like 2 or 3 cases of paint through it anyway. also, i have a new 98 custom and plan on takeing off the dble trigger and x chamber from his once i buy it, do you think this will work? also, i hear tippmann 98 barrell threads recently changed, will his all american fit on my 98 c, mine is pretty new, thanks for taking the time to answer this,

i probobly wasn't clear enough in my description, My tippmann has been used and i dont plan on taking it back, the reason i want his is to take the upgrades off of it and put them on mine, and then i can sell his gun stock on ebay for about 75$, i was just wondering if it would be possible to take his x chamber and put it on my gun. and wondering about the barrel threads , thanks

I agree - go with the 4 yr old 98C (Model 98 probably)

Good exchamber, good barrel. A new 98C with those mods would run you well over 200 bucks. Know a great deal when you see it!

Why would you swap the parts over to your new 98C? There'd be no inherent advantage.

I would buy his setup for $75, and then turn around and sell your newer 98C for $100... bam - you have a capable marker and you just made $25

We DO understand. What we DON'T understand is why you want so badly to swap the parts over just because your 98C is newer.

There would be no gain. Also your newer 98C will fetch a few bucks more on EBAY than the M98.
