    Asking price is meh. A mag is $36 and the flash hider is $32, so there's $418 for a rifle I could get complete and new for $385 shipped.

    The bipod and RDS aren't really selling points for me if it doesn't come with a mag in order for it to function to begin with.

    I always subtract 120.00 for a sight unseen item...could have tried unrealistic mods to it and you wouldn't know about it until you looked inside.

    Lol I didn't even read that there was no magazine included :D

    That a good way of looking at it.. I usually base my purchasing decisions off the 60% rule. If it's 60% of retail I will consider it to be a good deal if everything is in working order, unless of course it is an item that is highly desirable. Even as a seller I've tried to base my pricing decisions off that rule, although one time I sold a KWA MML for like $400 which I thought was pretty good at the time considering they are $460 new. I'm definitely going to try your method though.

    I would subtract another $80.00 for something that has a "custom" paint job too.

    if it’s painted, unless it is something I highly desire (very subjective) or absolutely dirt cheap, it’s a deal breaker.

    The only things right now that would peak my interests that could be painted are 2 pistols: both WE G series, both in their G-Force series, one being a g26, one being a g19.. they could be painted tan frames wirh gold and silver barrel/slide (which are undesirable for me) but they’re such in slim pickings here in Canada, and importing them is a pita, so I’d actually consider painted undesirable spec ones (ideal would be black frame, black slide, silver barrel if any Canuck is reading this and has one...)

    Another eBay listing fail...also if this is the polymer version, it is more expensive than Evike is selling it for.

    I guess now it's ok to just lie in your item description. Should probably also mention that the magazines are not a "$60 value" when they come with the two pistols you bought...



    Only one in the world. Hmmmm

    Famous Airsoft wanna be...uses green gas instead of propane to minimize wear and tear...BS, what a crock. "Using" it induces wear and tear.

    I should flag him for a violation.
