As for finding a Shocker Sport (or shoebox, or brick), they're kind of hard to come by. Here is one I found on ebay. It's $125.
Why exactly are you looking for a Sport? I recommend you get either an SFT or a nerve, or if you have the cash get an NXT or another newer SP marker so you'll be up-to-date.

That was the first high end marker I had. I loved it. I have only found three guns that were as quiet. One I modded somewhat and made it that quiet. The other was my brothers. My phantom is slightly louder but not too much. Not only that I dont see anyone using them anymore. So kind of like an old school thing. I have been playing for 12 years nwo and I am just not into the new stuff they have come out with. Just for proof. The two last "new age" guns I bought was a gx-4 cocker, and a vf tactical cocker. Not only that I dont need a $600 marker when I play stock class most of the time.
I dont care about being "up to date". That is just a thing to get people to buy new markers. My brother had the sft. I hated it. A whole lot louder. Wasnt as comfortable to shoot. Just felt weird. Plus I love the looks of the 4x4. Unlike the looks of the newer shockers. I mean I would get one in black but I cant see paying $300 more for a newer one when it doesnt shoot any better than the 4x4. Plus I dont play enough to drop that kind of money into a marker. I would rather my phantom be my nice expensive marker and the shocker just for goof off.
Plus I just wanted to know if I get a 4x4, if I can use the newer shocker barrel for it. I want to run a dye ultralite. My old one had a 16" all american barrel that came stock and was quiet. A buddy of mine pulled out a 14" dye boomy and that thing was silent. Everyone loved it.
Now as far as price. Depending on what come with it depends on what i would give for it. The last one I bought which was about 5 years ago (I miss it) I paid $175 and it came with a revy, 3 barrels, drop with the on/off, and a nitro tank.
I would love to find a splashed one with a matching all american barrel, and a single trigger. I dont even care for the s/f because i cant use it at the local field, and full auto is just pointless along with the three shot burst. Turbo wouldnt be bad but like i said i dont need it either. I would take either or though.
But thanks for the help. If anyone has one they are thinking of getting rid of pm me and I will look at what you have to offer.
