Used Paintball Guns
A Must Read Before You Purchase a Paintball Gun
If you are planning to purchase Used Paintball Guns you will definitely want to read this first.
Due to the nature of paintball guns it is very important that you do your research ahead of time to ensure you are making the right decision with your purchase. Here are some tips and things to look for during your search:
Is the purchase online or off-line?
This is a very important question to consider because it will help out a lot in determining whether or not you are making the right decision.
If the purchase is online you will want to use a method where you get “buyer's protection” so that if the deal goes bad you are not left with nothing, and can generally get your funds back.
If you are dealing offline you will usually want to deal in cash or with a legitimate business (never pay in advance and never purchase without seeing the item first!).
Did you test the item?
This is not always possible but whenever it is, you will want to test the item before making the decision to do the purchase. If you can not use it, see about being able to take it apart a little, at least to ensure all of the parts are there and are in working order.
You can not always tell 100% using this method, but it will still help determine whether or not the Used Paintball Guns you are interested in are duds. While you are at it, ask if the person has used cheap paintballs in it. These are known to sometimes cause complications in the weapon due to early exploding.
Does the seller have any feedback from others (preferably not family or friends of theirs)?This question is one of the most important because it helps to learn about the seller's integrity.
I have experienced on multiple occasions someone who seemed legitimate that turned out not to be (and did not find out until a while after the fact – with no recourse available) where I went online and found out others had already had the same experience I did. Do not put yourself in this boat with us, and learn from our mistakes. Always research the person if at all possible.
Following these above tips will not guarantee that you will not be burned on your transaction, but they will greatly lower the chances of it. More or less what you want to keep in mind is that the more you know, the more informed your decision will become.
When it comes to where to do the purchasing, the best places would be actual Paintball stores. You know (almost positively, though not always) that they will be there for a while in case there are issues. You do not want to take any risks with your Paintball Gear! After all is said and done, you are ready to go take part in Paintball Games.
