You see them all the time - people trying to sell "barely used" items that are 4 years old at MORE than they paid for them originally. However, they do sometimes manage to trick people that don't bother to Google a price.

I had a good one a little while ago (same item) that was asking like $200 but here's one to start it off:

48ci/3000psi Pure Energy HPA tank....$110.

Lol.

I had a guy at my field offer to sell me a pair of old worn out I4's (they were first gen) for almost $80. Lol, I was like "dude, I could buy a brand new pair for $99".

A guy at a pawn shop tried to sell me a very used x7 for over $400. He was trying to convince me it was an amazing deal. By the way it was a totally stock x7.

While those are ridiculous, they are not ridiculous in the sense that the seller thinks you are an idiot who has never heard of Googling something :P

oh dude there was an epic one a few years ago. i saw it on a couple forums including this one. it was an ebay sale, and it had a 98 custom, i think a 20 oz tank, remote line and like a 24 inch barrel all for the sweet price of like 1,000 bucks. of course you know if you add the word sniper the value of whatever it is you have goes up 200%.

It must have been an impressive never used 98c to reach $1000 at only 200% value ;) haha

I've never seen anything that ridiculous.
On the other hand, I bought a Empire Magna and VLocity, both in perfect working order, with 2 rechargable 9v's on eBay.
$61 shipped.

My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

A couple of extremely "unsafe" deals...

Labeled as usable for paintball:

http://edmonton.kiji...QAdIdZ232725604
http://edmonton.kiji...QAdIdZ232727219

Definitely reported him and emailed him :P

EDIT: He replied saying thanks for reminding him, and changed the titles...but his name on the email was in Asian characters of some sort...

Reminds me of some of the stuff on eBay from Hong Kong and stuff that's so iffy :P
