Funny with me.... I always look at/read things so quickly that I don't notice details. Oops sorry...

This was taken from your CPS 100 review. The seller wrote that the description was "from (the) manufacturer". Shameless.

I'm pretty sure one would get that much in the UK (£70ish). There was one as a BIN for £40, disappeared almost instantly.

Copy and paste laziness. At least he didnt' steal pictures, but one time, a fake CPS 1000 on Amazon stole a picture from SSC of a real 1000. (the fake 1k that was posted doesn't even remotely resemble the real one)

I doubt that thing is going to sell anyway. I've only seem MK I's go up that high and that was from bidding, not reserve/starting prices.

The first one is messed up, but the CPS 1200 Larami 3120-0 is actually correct since 3120-0 is the product's item number given to the CPS 1200. See: CPS 1200 Review page on iSoaker.com

A pretty damn good copy of a 1500- the res, nozzle, sticker gave it away.

You can also tell by looking at the PC. A real 1500 has a vent hole on each side. This gun also lacks a switch tab and the screw placement is different.

LOL! That guy has been trying to sell that since last year (maybe even before as he was selling it when I first checked ebay for cps soakers). When will he realise that people aren't gonna pay $180+ for a soaker?

And did this guy just totally copy paste iSoaker's reveiw/statistics onto their page?

Sure, "iSoaker.com" is mentioned (because he copy pasted the page) but I really don't think he actually bothered to acknowledge the author.
Really...
Drench 'em ALL!!!!

And another CPS knockoff. Other than the trigger, sticker, and lack of res cap, it is pretty good.

That's the person that sold me my authentic CPS 1000. Stange.

The entire list for "CPS super soaker" is BIN or BO only and over the winter value, even for collectors. It's ridiculous. There's a 2000 MK2 up there now for double what I just paid for one. I don't think I've seen the whole list dead-on-arrival before.

DO NOT BID. That is a NIB CPS 2500 with an entirely plagiarized description. This seller managed to rip off iSoaker and myself. I read the description and was wondering why it sounded so familiar...turns out it's my own review, from 2005. For the record, anything I produce on any water warfare site may be used by anyone and you don't need permission as long as you cite me. Permission is NEVER granted to use anything I produce in one's Ebay auctions, cited or not. The only exception is the Buying Water Guns guide and any other future guides written on Ebay.
