Admittedly I did get a brand new one of these in Italian Vegetato recently for £25 off Amazon. 

 

Problem is, it's a really crap vest. The pouches are barely big enough for M4 mags. Very awkward to use.

We got called out so it had to be posted here. 

 

 

Haha  fair enough.

 

New: 268 quid for uberti 1860 stock

£170 for the umarex

 

Parts and time ect  

 

It's very much a one off.

 

And I further worked it out with bits I traded ect and have dropped the price anyway. It is a pretty thing. £275 takes it

He'll probably sell to someone without UKARA who can't get it cheaper from bbguns4less

Available for under £200 new. 

Edit: even with the extras there's no way it's worth that second hand

 

 

Genuinely what is one of these things, two toned, worth second hand though? Postage cost? 😅

Just out of the box and not been used yet

 

If that's true then he can return it for a full refund.

 

It's not, of course, which is why it's not worth anywhere near full retain price, let alone way over it.

 

This chap has a history of flogging "as new" / "never used" stuff, and the previous ones are RIFS, so why is this an IF?

 

Nothing hugely dodgy about that, but I rather suspect that he's a trader rather than a player.

I thought you couldn't return IFs because the shop voids the manufacturer's warranty by painting it? Not that I'm defending this guy.

That is a fair point, although a lot of the stuff that BBgunz4nedz flog seems to come with stock gelcoat plastic parts, not painted over.

 

If it's been charged for as a customisation service, then you can't return, but if it's a stock item, I can't see any problem with it.

Yep, it wasn't a lucky guess 😉 and don't forget the 7% discount if you leave it in the basket for 24hrs.

That makes it £176

Vector = £460

Mags - £90

Total £550

 

All from extreme airsoft. At 70% you're looking a £385 second hand and that's not taking into account the two tone nature.

 

£420 wanted for a two tone vector (AEG) with 3 extra mags and the most egregious thing? Use of comic sans font family for the typeset. 

 

Can't help but wonder if the price was chosen simply not by logic but for the '420 blaze it' meme, font choice supports my case, and the final bit of evidence? The two tone colour is clearly marijuana green.

 

The prosecution rests it case.

I tried this recently just out of interest and didn't get the super secret offer. :(

 

Possibly it's only for new accounts, although it's not rocket surgery to obtain a new email address.

I still haven’t got past the fact someone dropped that many beer tokens on a pissing two-tone !😳

It is baffling. I can actually understand (if not agree with) dropping that much on a rare RIF, even if it's a wall hanger. But on an obvious toy that will shoot much the same as CYMA AK, no, I don't get it.

Im surprised the shop two toned it. I know the customer is always right etc (never in my retail experience but thats another thread) and if someone wants to pay for it then they will supply it, but if I were a retailer I wouldnt be able to bring myself to two tone a vector.

There is a two tone marushin 8mm M1 on used Airsoft at the moment. It breaks my heart.

damn :(

 

as a note for any new players- we get that 2-tone is a necessary evil and most of the time nobody is gonna judge you for it.

 

unless you do it to something nice then all bets are off.

You can't fix stupid but with enough duct tape you can at least keep it away from a keyboard.
