"Black" Guns in Sales Threads

Just thought I'd throw this out there, its kind of assumed, but after dealing with a few trade issues regarding this it must now be put in writing.

If you are advertising a "Black" gun for sale this means that either the plastic or metal is black from the manufactuer. This does not mean that you painted it!

If you painted the gun "Black" then you must advertise it as such as a "Painted Black" gun.

Going forward anyone who omits this information will be considered scamming their buyer. Scammers get banned. Period.

FYI this goes for any colour painted, not just black for those of you who like to be technical in definitions.

Also, while carrying on with this also ensure you list all issues with said item for sale. ie - broken mag release, cracked body tabs, excessive play in the mag well, etc.

When packaging said sale items up also, please double check your sales ad to ensure that everything you have listed is included in the package before sealing it up to ship. This adds what a total of 1 min to your time? And saves us days in dealing with complaints.

Play fair both on the field, and in the classifieds. It keeps everyone happy.

Its kinda sad that this has to actually be posted...
Youd think the integrety of the community would be better than this. I really hope its not any of the vets and rather just a few "uninformed" new players.

While instances of miss communication exist, one cannot ignore the fact that there are dirt bags out there that just want to take a persons money in a trick deal. Its better to inform buyers of all possibilities so that they can ask the right questions when the time comes.

Common sense is nowhere near as common as the name implies.

I know I have seen a lot of people paint guns, and you can tell they don't do multiple coats cuz there is still clear parts.

Horrible horrible jobs.

Oh well... not my problem.

Typically vets wouldn't buy clear guns, but yeah I've seen one advertised as all black that was quite obviously painted, people like that are fucking scammers that should have their AV status revoked.

Suggestion

Can we have a new section in the classified for Clearsoft/ clearsoft painted black
Clear guns (gas, spring or aeg)
Electric
Gas & Spring
Parts
Gear
NAR


Thought it would be a good idea, and prevent miscommunications of people buying painted clear guns etc

This is true, and I'm not completely against it.

We have enough sections as it is, more sections means more work for the admins.

We play a sport where honesty and honour come into play, if you can't carry that on to these forums, then you should not be playing.

To me, this is just catering to the lowest common denominator. There's enough of that out in the real world already making things overly complicated for people who have some common sense. Please, let's not do that here as well to make life more complicated for the users and create more work for the admins.

Bloodsport said it right. This is a sport that operates on the honour system as it's basic rule. Those that can't practice that basic thing here on the forums shouldn't be allowed to play in the first place.
