View Full Version : I'm a Winner!

09-20-2006, 07:09 PM
I realize this is no big deal. I'm just bragging cause I NEVER win anything like this. Every once in a while I'll jump on ActionVillage and enter all of their giveaway contests. Looks like it finally paid off. I haven't received it yet, but I got the e-mail this weekend telling me that I have won one of the 20th Anniversary Tippmann 98 Customs.


Aside from the gold plated hardware, gloss black finish, and fancy barrel, it looks like its just going to be another 98 Custom. Comes with a certificate of authenticity, a custom display stand, and should be stamped with a serial number to prove that its one of the "limited edition" markers in the run of 3000 they've made to commemorate their anniversay. Here's a pic (borrowed from warpig)


I haven't decided what I'm going to do with it yet. I might buy a CO2 bottle and actually play around with it. Might keep it in the box like a collector's item. Might attempt to sell it or trade it for something I'll actually use. Who knows.

At this point, I'm just excited that I actually won something!

My friend's shop has one that they just keep on display, it isn't for sale. Its a nice looking mantle piece I guess you could say. I'd just keep it for display, I wouldn't use it. It may be worth something to a tippy fanboy idiot one day. :)

Congrats! Put it on display though. Dont use it... It will gain value later on... Nice job winning though!

09-21-2006, 04:44 PM
Your lucky. I havent won anything ever.

09-21-2006, 05:04 PM
If I decide to keep it, I think it will never come out of the box. Collector's items like this will only achieve their maximum value if you never open the box (hence the phrase "NIB")

Havent decided what to do with it yet.

09-22-2006, 01:38 AM
since im a packrat, i would just put it on display, but thats just me...

09-22-2006, 04:54 PM
I would definitely keep it boxed up and put it away NIB for a couple years at least.

09-22-2006, 05:26 PM
Put it away because friends don't let friends shoot tippmans.

09-22-2006, 05:49 PM
id shoot it a couple times then put it away for a few years
