Well, this is a trade for my E-Mag. Don't ask why, just stick to the question at hand...

Today's contenders are a Raced Free Flow Mellinium vs. a bone stock VF-Tactical.It may sound like a "no durr" solution, but bear with me, and think abou this one.

First, the FF.

Only information I've got of this one is it comes with all the cables/parts needed.

Now, the Tactical.

Bone stock. Includes, and I quote: "System -VF- T Front Block, AR Guard shroud for the 3-way, The Grip feed neck,03 Vertical Autococker Custom Milling, an all delron bolt with o-rings, a second generation hinge frame,the WGP curve trigger, an Orr-acle valve spring, -VF- T ram, CT-3 way, Outkast adjustable front regulator, Ergo regulator with low pressure end cap, black magic pull pin, black anodized pump rod, cocking rod and actuating rod."

Now for my reasons for each.

Free Flow: Well, duh. It's beautiful. And Raced. It will give me all I'll ever need in a 'cocker. But that's it, It's all I'll need. I can't cut it, tinker with it, or otherwise upgrade it. Bleh. This is just a straight trade.

VF-Tactical: I'm a rec baller. It will cover both aspects of the sport. Plus, it's nothing special, so I can cut it, mod it, upgrade it, etc. I've got my Gemini kit waiting for a nice mech, and this is a nice mech. Also, he's willing to front $150 as well.

Thanks for your help.

Freeflow. Unless dude is offering you a ton of extra cash for the VFT trade.

If Look at it this way, if you want to use the gemini, you can swap out the front block on the race, pick up a decently cheap frame at close-out prices (from virtually ANYWHERE these days) and have the best of both worlds. Tell you what. If I don't go all out and get the Osiris, I'll BUY you a decent .45 and internals off of MCB and you can use that to make the mech out of it. You know it's worth it. Besides, you still need an extra LPR before you can use the gemini, at least you'd have a working high-end sear-tripper to play with until you saved up for a decent LPR (SCM-III all the way!)

Besides, there are enough FF's out there that it wouldn't kill you to half-block it and send it to Rainman for anno if you really want to tinker with it big time. Besides, there's more than enough tinkering to be had. If that thing doesn't have a delrin bolt, QEV's, AKA straight-arm, and a light back-block, it isn't optimized. And who knows, maybe I'll get tired of the MQ valve... well.... no I wouldn't but it's still something you could do!

Just my $0.02

Personally I would go with the FF unless you are getting more cash for the VF trade. AND if you get the FF and decide you would rather go mech...well let's say I have a nice home for the Race if Tallen doesn't snatch it from you first.

Nah, there's 2-3 other Raceguns I'm looking at right now. I may pick up that Race'd MQ you dragged your feet on. I'll let you know how nicely it blazes.

Definitly the FreeFlow.

Just like you said, its a plain cocker, except tactical.

Your mag isnt plain, the cocker is.  That $150 couldnt make it close to the beauty of the FreeFlow.

Go for the FF. It looks good and we know how good it'll shoot. Dont let it pass you by.It'll be worth it, way worth it.

Well, the FF is pending to me right now. But I regret to inform you I will be parting with her shortly after I get her.

I refuse to disclose any information until everything is secure. :P

No point in raising hopes, getting a bunch of ooo's and aaah's and having the deal tank...

I'm kinda surprised Tallen hasn't chewed me out for trading it off the second I (potentially) get it...

Atleast give her a test run. I can't believe you're going to part with her that fast. I would atleast go to the field and gloat/boast a little on how amazing it is.
