    Got this for free from a buddy of mine. It's pretty much just been sitting in the safe. I'm realistically problably never gonna spend the 2,000+ dollars on nightvision. My friend offered me a new in box Colt LE marked M4 for it.

    Do you think hanging on to is a good idea or is it just gonna become old technology and lose it's value? Any advice?

    Put it up on an airsoft forum...you'll get twice what's it worth
     
  3. I sure as hell wouldn't hang onto it if you're not planning to use it. Electronic accessories generally go south in value, so I'd not feel bad about getting rid of it. How much do they usually sell for used?


    Oh, and if your friend offered you an M4 the BATFE would probably be interested. :mamoru:

    Im not even sure what they go for.

    And you know what I meant! :mamoru:
     
  5. I'd figure what it's worth first. Assuming that your friend is talking about something like a Colt 6920, you can find them online now for ~$1200 new, so just make sure you know what everything's worth before you commit to a deal.

    I would try and find out where that PEQ came from.

    Receiving SGP is one thing - doling it out...totally other.

    Unless you sucked his dick, or he fucked your ass - nobody is giving you a legit PEQ for free.

    That shit is hotter than a pistol, and I would be careful about posting that online.

    Especially because there are people from Army and Navy CID on OT.

    PS - even if you sucked his dick, or he fucked your ass...he is not giving you a PEQ for free.

    That being said, if you are trying to get the value of the item, I would do some price checks on ATPIALs before you do that. You could do a lot better for yourself.

    I'm totally sure you got a $2,000 device (for which you don't even own the corresponding NODs) for free.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Yeah, man because nobody in this world would ever be generous to a good friend. How the fuck do you know exactly where this came from? It came directly from Insight technologies. Not to some other agency.

    Not mine, but if it were, the NSN would be 99FUCKYOU

    :mamoru:

    Edit: On a serious note, I'd like to know if that would work with my hackjob night vision device.

    I used to work with lots of people that would steal shit off the re-supplys in the ghan then send the shit back home to their buddies claiming the shit wasn't stolen. Shit was still stolen though regardless of what they said.

    if it were me, i'd save that shit for a rainy day when i have a ton of cash for NVG. those things are near impossible to come by that it'd be a tragedy to get rid of it

    I'd ditch it, if you ever decide to spend cash on NV you can pick up another or the whatever the hotness is at the time.

    If it really is legally acquired, i'd sell sell/trade that shit.

    Without NVGs, there really is no point to a $2K IR laser. $2K for the laser, $3.5K for the Gen III NVGs... ugh.

    BTW: How much of a POI shift are you getting with a G5?

    when I said it was an illegal transfer, it is definitely illegal for InsightTech or Laser Devices to release any of their products directly to individual end users

    and yes, I know it's not illegal to own

    I deleted it because nobody was really being helpful. It is serialized. It just seems that every post I have seen Razardica post in as of late, he has the attitude of being king shit. Maybe I'm being too sensitive tho :gay:


    Anyways, Im gonna hold on to it for now. I was looking and the ATPIAL is listed at $2275 on some sites, and that doesnt have a visible laser and flashlight as well. Not to mention you can't just buy it. The guy who wants it is a SWAT officer so he has some NVG's he's been issued as well as a personal set. He's now mentioning throwing in a 1000 rounds of .223 and 5 mags. Very tempting.
