Okay, do remanufactured markers include the original box, manuals, parts, ect?

I'm wanting to buy a VS2 on actionvillage.com, and a reman. VS2 is only $110... I'm all about resell value, so I like to have everything that came with it.

Now, I'm still deciding on a marker, and I just don't know what to get, the Electra 08 or the VS2.

I like the trigger on the VS2 better, but the Electra 08 is lighter and shorter. The Electra does not come with a rechargeable battery and charger, but the VS2 does. The Electra has Semi and Ramp PSP + Millennium, while the VS2 has Semi and 3 Burst. Although, I can get the Tadao board plus the M7 chip for $85, making the VS2 only $195...

Does anyone have both markers? I would like an opinion by someone who owns both.

If the remanufacture is from Kingman more likely it will come in original packaging. I have had a VS2 and now own an 08 Electra. By comparison they both have their pros and cons but all in all I like the 08 Electra better just by its size and weight. Not to mention the VS2 VA is not standard so you will either have to use the supplied bottom line regulator or purchase an aftermarket VA to use a different regulator. With the Electra it has standard threading so you can change out for an aftermarket regulator if you have to but I still think the stock regulator design is great. On my Electra the only thing I am electing to change on it is the feedneck. Everything else doesn't need changing unless you are really determined to swap it out to something aftermarket.

whats the wieght on the 08 electra?

Some comparison.

08 Electra 2.60 lbs. w/ barrel & battery

Pilot 2.20 lbs. w/ barrel & battery

(The Pilot is lighter because of the Polymer trigger frame)

VS1 2.40 lbs w/ barrel & battery

RS 3.10 lbs. w/ barrel & battery

RSX 3.00 lbs. w/ barrel & battery

Reman product does not come in its original packaging. If you order a VS2, you will receive the Marker, Barrel, Charger, Battery, Barrel plug and possibly the owners manual. Owners manual can be downloaded from our website if you don't receive it.

Uhh... I believe you were asking about the weight of the Electra which is 2.60lbs. The RS is 3.10lbs.

I tend to not notice the weight really, but 3.1 pounds is light if you really think about it.

My bad... Just trying to help. I didn't know you were referring to the RS since you were asking about the Electra weight originally.

I orderd a vs2 from action village last sunday and got it tuesday. It came in a small laptop size cardboard box. Inside was the marker,2pc barrel, 9.6v battery, wall charger and a barrel plug. There was no instruction manual but you can download that from the web site. It has been stamped with the letter R (= refurbished) on the side of the body. This isn't a bad deal for only $110 but if you want original packaging and instruction booklets get the electra 08. I got this as an affordable backup to my mini. I may do some custom millwork to the body and send it out to anodize otherwise I would have just got the electra.
