I went to yard sales over the weekend looking specifically for paintball stuff. I played a bit of woodsball back in the 90's and have decided to come back to the game out of the blue, and decided to pick up a gun cheaply to keep the wife off my a$$. I went looking for something to be on par with the 98 custom ready to play pack at walmart. I Got this from some lady who's hubby had run out on her or something. I figured she did not know what its worth or just does not care. "nor did I for that matter at the time." She said make a offer so I said $100.00 and she took it.

I got all the paintball stuff in this pic for $100.00 and it looks freaky new. I did not ask I just paid. Guess I am ready to play again seeya on the field of battle friends.

The tank alone is probably worth about $100. Nice find, the Crossover is pretty darn good for the price.

There is a Tippmann tool in there also and those are $25.00. Gun is spotless inside and was well lubed upon inspection, I put a battery in it and downloaded the Crossover manual everything works. Auto response 15 balls per second seems to be the fastest firing mode for me. It has full auto 15 balls persecond but does not sound as fast as auto response to me. PSP 12.5, 3rd burst 15, and semi auto 15. and the Mech mode which seems super super smooth, so I will probably just use mech mode 90 percent of the time.

Paintball is actually a very expensive sport. Except for you, who hit the paintball lottery.

This bugs me. It's "won the lottery," or "hit the jackpot," not a combination of both.

Awesome. It's like a real life storage hunter. 1-what a douche for running out on the lady. 2- what a way to get back at him if comes looking for his stuff. This totally beat what I found cause this was a whole setup. This one dude sold me a fairly brand new rotor for $50. I was skeptical but decided on it. Said he daughters bf left and never returned so he just sold his stuff.

Thanks for all the kind words and welcome backs guys. Gun shoots great, it shoots ropes! I easily get 10, 140 rd pods on the 68 4500. I went to play the other day in a woods game. With all the cheddar I saved on this deal I am going to get a camera next so I can get some ingame videos.

Wow. I cannot wait to show this to my friend. He bought his first gun at a yard sale. It was a jt Cybrid with a 20 oz & jt mask for $65. We gassed it up when we got to his house & it leaked.

I'm really liking it so far,I got to test out all the modes and switching between them is easy and it shot well and everything was smooth. I'm taking it out this weekend to really test it out but I would definitely recommend it

I went sale hunting as well last weekend, but with no luck. The only paintball sale I found was an old rusty tippmann 98 for $150. A little high, no?
