been off the scene for about 2 years, so i need to catch up a little. I used to collect mainly, and still have them all. I want to know if value of the airsoft items have drop in value, ideally i'd like some one to price up the guns i have.

 

also i used to use airsoft community...what happened?

 

cheers -micky-

Firstly, welcome :)

 

ASCUK - I think that's what you're referring to, went down quite a while ago. I don't think there was an official reason, just disagreement between the people running the site.

 

Most things have probably stayed about the same, it depends really, what do you have?

That's a long list :P

 

Majority are still popular and really won't have dropped much, if any, value since you last looked about. If anything due to the prices of new guns going up you could be likely to get more assuming they are in good shape.

i guess the easiest thing to be would look around some of the retailers websites, that would give you a good indication of what they are worth. So what do you have in this collection of yours then?

Thats a serious list nice kit their. It's like anything the more rare stuff will hold it's value really well and the more common stuff Less so keep them in good condition and value will stay high. Would be amazing to see some pictures.

That's really just a case of looking at various retailers.

 

I mean your ICS M4 without launcher retails at around 280 (assuming its the metal version)

TM Aug you're looking at around 200

ICS MP5 is going to be around 200 new as well

 

The google shopping/product search is probably your easiest way to see new prices if you are unfamiliar with any retailers.

I'd say things have gone up around 20% but it's only a guess (mostly due to recession and VAT increase I should imagine). I don't have access to figures from back then :)
