Don't forget that the MaxD6000 is still on sale this year, and it's only $10. It's one of the best deals out there.

Yuck! I paid $10 for an MD6K 2 years ago. Small CPS guns could be had for as little as $2 on clearance THIS year. :wacko:

That's certainly the exception rather than the rule however. Two years ago, the MSRP on the MaxD was $19.99. Its new retail price is $9.99. That's a great deal.

The MD6K was just on sale for 50% off MSRP at season close 2003. The $2 CPS's were 2 year old 2100's stacked high at the local TRU. Upon further inquiry I learned this was the case at every store in my area, so it wasn't just an isolated case.

If the MD6K was still being produced and sold new, I would agree that $10 is a sweet deal considering what's available today.

I bought a Max-D 6000 on ebay for $9.99 last year. Not including shipping. After 1 month, most of the water came out from the nozzle selector. I was able to repair it, but still not worth $9.99. More like $3.99 to give 99 cent store soakers a sweating.

But I agree that a CPS 2100 for $2 is very rare and more depending on certain local areas rather than a nationwhide status. Otherwise there would not be CPS 2100s going on ebay for $20-$30.

$2 eh? If I give someone $30 US, can he/she get me TWO CPS 2100s and send them to me up here to B.C Canada?

Apparently the Southeast US recieves an abundance of guns relative to the rest of the country. The number of beasts from the early millenium last year and cheap 2100's this year, it is mind-boggling.

Not when they're going for $20, 30 or more, each, on eBay! :goofy:

Are you kidding, they HAD them. I'm lucky to have found them hidden with the Nerf guns. I've got ONE left. Just how much do you want it?


:suspicious:

I somewhat expected that no one would take me up on it. But then again, can't blame me and ShapObjects for trying getting something for the retail price outside ebay. :goofy:

my 1500 recoils like crazy on 10x. :cps1500:

anyways, i voted to try and get the 4100. older CPs blasters are usually pretty reliable and strong if you take care of them.

i'd say 4100 if you can get one. if you can't, get a flash flood.

Off the top of my head, I've felt recoil from a CPS 2000, CPS 2500, CPS 1500, CPS 1700, and even a Triple Shot.

I've felt some recoil from a CPS 2000, 2500, 1500, 3200, and 4100 [on drilled 20x].

I've felt ridiculous recoil from a CPS 21K and APH [On the 9/32, 3/8, 1/4, and riot blast ~60x].

Thanks for the replies!

I fixed my gun though so I guess it won't need replacing

If i did need to replace it, im certain I wont buy the 4100, it looks like it's seen better days
