this lady at my work offered to sell me her ex husband's marker saying "it's a viper that i paid $600 for in 1998". she said she will sell it to me for $10 cause she found it in storage and doesnt want it.

i tried to google for vipers and look on here but i cant find anything....i'm pretty sure this is BS...thoughts?

Apparently, it's a Tippmann clone.
It doesn't seem to be anything special, but $10?
That's a really good deal, I'd buy it and sell it for more.
Or you could use it as a backup.

Definately not a Tippmann clone. It works off of a completely different valve system. I believe it started production right around the time the original model 98s came out, although the company started in 1996.

They're excellent guns. Probably one of the nicest stacked tube blowback you'll find. Now days they can be found new for around $300-$350. She was probably stretching the truth about the price she paid, but in 1998 it isn't a completely unreasonable amount.

They have a built in expansion chamber, and the place where the CO2 tank goes allows you to keep liquid out of the marker. For a marker of it's valve design it is able to be extremely consistent, even off of straight unregulated CO2.The stock barrel is good and doesn't need replacing - not like you could find a replacement anyways.

It came standard with a power feed. The power feed can block your line of sight, but is able to feed balls extremely fast even with a gravity hopper.

$10 for it is an excellent deal! Even if it isn't working.
