 I really hope no one is dumb enough to fall for this listing, but If so I'll let mine go for only $2K😉

Mine are worth that to me because that's about what I have in them.

I'd say he probably has that much in it, or better.  I don't think he's in it for the profits.  Too much regardless when looking at other options available.

My thoughts exactly. The adage of you can always 'ask' anything you want holds true. There may be someone out there who wants that very setup without having to build it.

I went through something similar last summer selling my boat. I put a fair price on it, but the boat had a lot of West Coast upgrades and goodies (welded hull, galv. trailer, Evinrude ETEC motor, downriggers, electronics, etc.)  For a boat in it's class I was asking a high but fair price for it. It sat for over a month with a few tire kickers and lowballers looking at it. I figured I was going to have to eat some $'s and lower the price.

A guy and his wife came by and looked at it. He recognized the boat from seeing it on the water and gave me my asking price in cash on the spot. It was exactly what he had been looking for and he wanted something turnkey and ready to fish.

You just never know...

Keith I think when JSAR was doing these guns they were selling them for around $800 - $900 not for the price of a Raptor or a Taipan.

There's no telling the history, or how he acquired the gun.  I'm thinking $600 would be still tough on a buyer, but would be more reasonable.  It's a really nice Marauder setup.

Ok boys so impress me.  Find an FX impact or Dream  Line or veteran cheap.  I want one to tinker with.

A 1200 dollar M Rod No way.

And why has our classified section died?  Nothing?  Really?

The best place I have found to look for FX is over in the AGN classifieds section.  A lot of used FX guns are posted there, and is where I got mine.  You'll have to have a lot of self-control if you get an FX Impact.  The gun is just the start with those.  Try and work in some accessories if you can in a deal.  They add up quick.

I don't think the classified section is dead. Yes, it doesn't get the traffic AGN or GTA get, which is no doubt the reason it doesn't get the posts the others do.

Self control?  I am a master.  Not.
The reason i want a used FX is just to mess with it.  Maybe get one for .y father in law

Well that's all I do is mess with all my guns, except maybe the .357 Slayer.  Nothing to really do on that one.  I did rebuild it late last year, lol.

The FX Impact is perfect to mess with.  I've probably spent half as much on it as I paid for it already.  My wife hasn't complained yet, so...I do have some things like the FX chrono or another liner I am saving for Christmas request, also maybe another scope???

I'm not so sure an FX Impact is an airgun you "mess" with. Once you choose your fodder, buy the best liner for that fodder, properly tune it as Ernest Rowe suggests, there isn't much more to do but shoot it!

Well, so far with mine, I have installed a hybrid PP kit, modified the probe, changed to a dual ports.  Installed the full PP kit, picked up four liners, cast slugs and pellets for the specific liners, tuning to the specific liners to many different projectiles, extended the rail, cheek riser, different cheek rest, bag rider, sling mount, cleaned out the Shogun, replaced some O-rings, tweaked the trigger and some other tweaks I'll leave out..  Basically, I want to know what this gun can really do.  It's new to me and I don't mine making it sing by messing with it.  It's my gun now and it gets my full treatment.  I hunt, and hunt in .25 cal and .30 cal depending what I am after and then I like to plink with less fury in the backyard.  This gun does it all quiet well.  I'm not one to buy an airgun and be afraid to turn a screw on it.  What I don't know I'll learn as I go.  Yes, at some point I'll settle down on a couple of documented tunes in the different calibers after the fun of tweaking runs its course and I am happy with those.  Then it'll be time for some other airgun project.  I do leave it alone when I have a hunting trip coming up soon.

Well i am new to this so...
.
I got mine from Tallon tunes.  It is a 25.
I will add a slug barrel in a while.  Also in 25.
Extended rail under it.
Improved moderator.
.
I would like to pick up another to play with.  Maybe a 30 cal.  Or i may just swap out barrels on mine after i figure out adjustments on my own.
.
The thing is I Hate not having a gun up and running so a back up is a good idea.
.
I considered an Air Wolf by Daystate but just couldnt do it.  I'm sure it is  great gun but i like my electronics separate from. My gun.
