Sorry if anyone here placed the bid
I don't want some nerfer ruining a prefectly good 2k to make a nerf gun out of

And if anyone wants a 3200 cheap here you go as well

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Super-Soaker-CP ... 4d0bbae9ab

I so want the 3200 not so much the 2000 but can't buy any till I get a car. In fact if anyone buy the 3200 I will buy it off you when I get a car for $10 more than you pay (WARNING that could be a year or so)

^I think DX has a few 3000s and/or 3200s. You could buy one from him.

CA99, feel free to go for that 2000, haha.

Unfortunately, those 3000s and 3200s aren't priced low enough for him. I am glad to sell certain models and conditions to the community for more reasonable prices than Ebay, but CPS 3* are just too valuable, lol. I could sell the bad condition 3000 and not include the backpack, for more than Sam would buy the whole gun for. Ebay is crazy.

Hey, if a busted 1500 for $20 is within my price range, a used 3200 is an easy decision. I'm less interested in the 2000 since it may be missing parts, but everything important appears intact.

Perhaps I ought to snatch these up, but I also want to wait until I start rebuilding my income stream. (i.e. Get a job.) The ticket to MOAB costed quite a bit and I'd like to leave some breathing room for my wallet.

If I can I will try to get my parents to let me get the 2000. Its a great deal and the only chance I have to get a 2k.
Also there is a 250, I really think that eBay would get cleared out of good deals on blasters if I could buy on eBay.

Hey check this out:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2006-Hasbro-Sup ... 23299cdf14
That is one SICK color scheme. Me like it very much! Has anyone seen one like this before?

That 2K is pretty... unusual. The body actually looks pretty good, and it doesn't appear to be missing anything (besides some screws).... but why is it in pieces? Most people wouldn't just take something apart that works just to look around... Might be a PRV issue, or something. At least you will save on shipping???

The color scheme is a bit "meh" to me; colors are too saturated for my taste. I'd rather spend less money on an Iron Man 2 blaster from Amazon.

Indeed, that 2000 is rather odd. Lots of parts were taken apart. I never unthread the vinyl tubes of SS internals, since I don't want to go through the work of ensuring they seal again. Also, there's teflon tape wrapped over the reservoir seal. (That's a good idea actually; I have a few blasters that would benefit from supplementing tape over the O-ring, which is much nicer than replacing the O-ring.)

Owned one of what? A neon green Arctic Blaster?

Also, can this thread be renamed to "Latest Deals" or "Ebay-watch" or something? I had no idea about this thread until I stumbled into it.

Yeah. It was one of the first guns I bought after getting into water warfare.

They uesed to be on amazon for the same price as the white and blue ones. I agree with CA though, the colors sort of clash and just generally look bad.

Wow. Nope, to me, that green arctic blaster is gold. It's just my style! XD
So any particular reason for the colors? Was it some sort of movie blaster?

It was the color scheme for 2009. All blasters were painted like that for the 20th anniversary.

Oh efffffffff I missed that $56 CPS 2000 by 5 efffffffing minutes.

If you see a bunch of powerful, rare, overpriced soakers pop up on Ebay this week, it could be me. Hint: don't bid unless you're cray, I'm listing them at peak prices cause I need money badly.

I saw one that still has 6 days left. Will be keeping an eye on it because I could really use another one of these things.

Who is responsible for these?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Vintage-La ... 20d1d56cad
That's just horrible.

I bought the CPS 2000 parts, for under 33$ with shipping. Here's hoping I can put it together! XD
