my tippmann 98 question

OK THIS A YES OR OR NO QUESTION ABOUT THE VALUE OF MY GUN. I DO NOT WANT YOU TO TELL ME HOW MUCH IT IS WORTH.


got a 98 custom fully built with almost $500 total in it. just rebuilt last week with new tank. shot twice since rebuilt. im asking $125.

I WANT A YES IF IT IS A GOOD PRICE OR NO IF NOT. I HAVE NEVER SOLD A TIPPMANN SO IM LOST.

well, is the tank coming with it? and if so what kind of tank is it? and what upgrades did you put on it? just because you spent $500 building it means nothing

$125 is good, you may even be able to get a little more for it if you try

if you are already shooting 15 then no more paint in the air is going to help you at all.

most players playing speedball rarely get above 12 and most of the time 9-10 bps is plenty enough to get the job done

there are plenty of reasons to upgrade from the 98 but if you are already flinging lots of paint then you are not going to be flinging any more paint by switching to something else

I'm about to save this thread forever so next time somebody asks why we're not recommending tippmans we can show them.

Here's a poor guy who spent $500 on a tippman, and still doesn't think it's cut of for playing speedball. Not only that but he recognizes that he won't even get 50% of what he spent on it back.

Try raising I say around $140-$150, I think that would be a fair deal since your tank is together with the deal.

for a non-built 98 $75 is a pretty normal price, built like yours, thats a bit low.

just tell them to go buy a used 98 for $75 and then put all the stuff on it that yours has and see if they can come out under $125 or $150

Welcome to selling Tippmanns. If I were you I'd sit firm at $100 and be glad to get $100.
