Also: does anyone know what an MR2 is worth?
It depends on what Gen Etek. Etek is basically an ego with less frills and I think the LT has a composite frame. The MR2 might be worth $60-$75 it all depends on if you have upgrades and the shape it's in

My Christmas present to myself. Vizio 42" television, repurposed entertainment center (fully enclosed entertainment center I hacked up and remade - my daughter told me it looked professionally done, lol) sound system, DVD, Xbox, cable VCR and internet ready. My wallet is still smoking a bit...

Can this man get a round of applause or something? This is impressive :nolove:

Sounds like it's in tournament lock. If I remember right, there's a jumper maybe missing? Or was that just on the old ESP frames?

this could be possible, the CAMD frames were the same way

Story time!!
So I went paintballing for the first time in 6 months today, and we were talking about my friend's rotor, and I mused, "Why do you need 50 BPS capability?? No one shoots 50 BPS" A ref walking by said, "I do." As he was decked out in proto gear, I asked him if he played tournaments. He told me:

He plays D2

He just got back from a tournament in Miami (I thought it was the off season, and I think he said it was PSP. could be wrong. And i don't think there's a tournament this close to Christmas)

He shoots 50 BPS on semi uncapped and it's allowed

He shoots 36 CASES a tournament (WTF??)

Plays back center and goes into a game with 14 pods

Has a Bob Long GR6 "or something like that" (I said "you mean G6R?") which he paid $3000 for cause it has "upgrades"

He has an electronic reg on it that allows him to shoot 300 every single shot no matter how fast he's shooting, and it was almost $400

Tell me, is that crazy (especially the 36 cases a tournament) or am I crazy??


And what is a jumper?

That guy is lying to you. Period. Human fingers do not move that fast. It's physically impossible. 50 bps is illegal in ALL tournaments, and there are very few guns even capable of going that fast. Not to mention the safety factor that is involved with shooting that fast. Just that alone would allow me to ridicule him. He doesn't shoot 36 cases. 72,000 paintballs? His team maybe, but not him. and ONLY 14 pods? Consider that 14 pods holds approx. 2100 paintballs, that would mean that he would have had to play 34 games at least, and used EVERY pod in each game. I'm really rolling my eyes here. Please go back and make fun of that guy and make him prove it to you. He sounds like a noob who's never played higher than a local 3 man tournament, and lost.

A jumper is a plastic piece that connects to pins together. When it's on, it makes a connection and allows a certain thing (in this case, bps) to happen. It sounds like yours might have fallen off...

Yeah that sounded like a load of BS to me.

And I'll have to check the board. Need to take half the gun apart to clean out all the pink (non field) paint. But that's another story of asshats who are a disgrace to the sport.
