Sorry for the late replies. Thank you guys. I'm still happy and couldn't believe about my score.

True. I value the ammo alone $120 for all. Listed them up on local forum.

That wasn't the case. He sold it as he just lost his job and need funds. I feel sory for him but i believe when he's back on track, he will def build a better and more awesome build.

I was thinking the paint job was somewhere in between $350-500. And he told me $500 when we met up.

I did read his build thread months ago. So i think i'm on the safe zone.

Before he took that deal, sure hope you let him use some of the frog lube. Lol!

That's not a Cracker Jack frankengun. Whoever put it together took their time and did their research. Congrats.

He did use most of the solvent and lil bit of the paste.
Yes he did his homework and chose the parts by his best. I'm a builder that's why i knew the deal couldn't be missed.

Ahh. I take it back then.

Still, I understand you need to make some money, but I guarantee there are a few members here who would have bought it.
