They're buried pretty deep in a HUGE sale of markes and other assorted parts. The Phantom setup comes with everything you'll ever need, minus a new ano job (cause that thing is "jump up and slap yer grandma" ugly). The pump mag is a fairly priced for what you get. Not so sure about the 007. The C3 is literally NIB and cheaper than I've seen elsewhere.

is 600$ a good price for that very ugly phantom?

That price seemed pretty steep to me as well. It would be worth a pretty penny though, considering you get 3 different bodies, 2 different barrels, 2 different air sources, and the rest of the goodies... and all of it match-ano'd that nasty color. The high asking price may also be due to the "first to receive clear parts" claim. If I could get that in writing with Mike Cassidy's signature and stamp of approval, then I would agree that its worth $600. Otherwise I would say its worth somewhere in the high $400 to low $500 range.

*Grit's teeth* That phantom don't look tooooo bad!:(
Definitely not worth $600 I wouldn't pay $200 for it as I think I would rather have a plain black one over that color lol! I'd say with the matching 3.5 oz tank (you can't get them annoed anymore from Cassidy at least) I'd say $350-$400 range!
Those first three mag's are gorgeous!

awww man, this whole MCB not working on my comp is getting depressing. do the admins over there know?
EDIT: anonymoused it. WOW. theres alot there. That X-mag price seems fair. But that is a really ugly phantom and i would def not pay $600 for it. the Pump Mag seems a bit high too, Seeing how BD_paintball is selling his on scp for $350. Lots of stuff there tho. Could be fun. maybe thinking about pickin up that on/off valve.
Those first three mag's are gorgeous!
QFT. Hot dam, those black ones are nice!

Comparing BD's pmag to this one is like apples and oranges. BD's looks frankensteined together from leftover parts. This one is in real good shape and with some really nice parts... not to mention that hard-to-find euro highrise body. Not a big fan of it, but they're not exactly easy to come by.
holy huge sale! Some great mags there, and I don't think the anno on the phantom is that hidious.

cool thanks all.
Once I try out a pump with my bum wrists I will most likely support our own and get it from Otter.

Those prices are rediculously high! $600 for a phantom setup, $425 for a L5 mag, $600 for a mech cocker. No thanks! ActionVillage even has C3s for $200.

If you have no interest and only wish to insult those of us who use them, don't bother posting here again. And check your PMs. Consider yourself warned.

If you don't like pump's don't post in the pump forum! You can have an opinion but your post is more like bashing rather than an opinion. I play both pump and semi and enjoy both aspect's and can get elimination's with either which it is very possible to do so!
You don't have to like pump's but please don't post in this forum and bash them.

1 question what would make any body with half a brain buy a pump paintball gun.
I'm sorry I actually didn't answer your question. Well the reason why I bought my first pump gun is cause I was going to the local field and on certain day's there was not a lot of competition and I ran into problem's with even getting to play cause nobody wanted to play against a guy with a shocker! So I bought a PMI traccer and on day's that there wasn't too many regular's I played with it to level the playing field.
It bring's a challenge to the game being the underdog.
Help's work on your aim, snapshooting, skill and strategy as you have to rely on them more rather than rate of fire.
I've learned that pump player's are a lot easier to get along with and have more integrity than most other player's which make's for a day of play where I won't have to worry about people wiping my hit's or being overshot by an ego (not the marker)!
Like I've said before I play both semi and pump but my preferance is definitely pump without a doubt. I own a VSC phantom and an Ironmen Intimidator and the phantom see's more field time than my Timmy hand's down!
If you do by chance come back to read this and reply I would really appreciate it if you do not flame or bash pump's you have a right to your opinion but no need to flame someone for wanting one or owning one is necessary!

i laughed at my friend when he got 1 and when we played he got 3 shots off and i shot 50 and hit him 40 out of the 50 shots and he never touched me. put it simple they suck.
IF this even happened, your friend had no pump experience. Try playing some 1 on 1 against an experienced pump player. You might find it a bit more difficult. You shot 50 balls and hit him 40 times? Right....sounds like somebody has been psychologicaly scarred from being schooled by a pump player.
Save the trolling for PBN or Tipmann, please.

Deleted the offensive post. All others be warned as well. You dont have to like pumps to post here... but if you cant carry on a normal conversation without trash talking our markers of choice just keep your mouth shut.
So back to the topic at hand. Ive been cruising MCB for other stuff lately and I've come to the conclusion that several of their members tend to over-price stuff and I think I know why. 1) Thats where the collectors hang out and some of these are more like "artifacts" than paintball guns to them 2) They have bigger bank accounts than the average player. and 3) Lots of them don't really wanna sell anyway. Seriously... look in their galleries. Some of these guys have invested $10,000 easy on their collection. Problem is... paintball guns depreciate like cars do. Use it once and you'll NEVER get what you want for it. And when they do sell, they're usually selling within that circle of people so they're used to the big numbers and the necessary haggling down.
Anyway... they're still some nice guns.

Yeah a lot of the MCB guy's prices are high but I think Dave hit the nail on the head.
What you all don't realize that if it wasn't for massive sites like pbnation that marker's wouldn't depreciate as much as they do. Kid's/adult's get desperate to sell and will take a lowball then once he sell's it for that price other's start selling at that price. I can literally buy certain marker's off of there and take them to my local field and resell them for a lot more (which I have done before)and make a good size profit!The guy probably doesn't go there (smart move) and doesn't realize that C3's have dropped like a rock in price along with some of the other marker's.
If I had the money though I would definitely pick up one of his mag's!:D

pumps are awesome. there was a guy at one of the fiedls i go to and he had this crap pump. he was owning these ppl. mind u it was in a speedball field and everyone else had dm4s and cockers. he had the little 10 shot tbes in his pocket. i ddint want to play just watch this guy own ppl.
