For me I would say it has to be the milsim kit I bought for my 98. I bought the tactical Ak shroud parts and yes it looks cool but now the added weight annoys me and the stock seems to get in the way. It isnt that difficult to take off, but if I did take it off Im not sure what I would do with the pieces. Or actually thinking about it I bought a sight riser and it actually made the sight useless because then all I could see was side of the hopper.

A chrono that attached at the end of the barrel.

Too much expensive paint that would warp before I ended up using it.

Too many CO2 tanks filling them all, and forgetting to keeptrack of levels. Having a ton of C02 tanks all expire in short period of time of each other.

This may sound rather OCD but I have everyone of my CO2 tanks labeled with the empty weight.  I just use a fish scale to find out how much is left.  When they get low they go with my repair stuff to use for testing until they are empty.

I also have the empty weight of all of my tanks as use a fish scale, but I use it for filling my own tanks at home.

At this point I think I am done with CO2 tanks and plan to just buy whatever I need to fill my Comp air tanks myself.

On second thought, I might just have what I need in the workshop at work. Ill have to check and see.

Hmm...

I have a disappointing purchase, the Apex 2.  Not liking it on my A5, throwing paint everywhere regardless of what brand I am using.

Aftermarket PT and bolt for my 98C. Second was probably the throat mics for some walkie talkies that my brother and I have. They never worked right, ever.

brass eagle marauder (x2)

probably buying the pile of guns i have in my closet... though in about 10-15 years i should be able to make a bunch of money off the "vintage guns"

splatmaster, rainmaker, pile of sheridan brass, 6 or 7 brass eagle nightmares...

biggest mistake was selling my dark cocker :(

The TTF5 I bought was a bit of a mess, but never really regretted getting it.

That said, probably the palmer's quick-switch I swapped my shocktech bomb out for. It ALWAYS hissed. Way too fickle with not enough play to properly time a hair-trigger.

HPA tank. It was expensive, and the fact that i haven't got it hydro tested is one major reason I haven't played in years. It spoiled me on CO2. Most of my other stuff (68 carbine excluded) I could just pick up and play with. The carbine has a borked valve, I intended to fix it as a loaner, so that was pretty dumb. Best purchase was the original SL-68 I got on ebay for a song. The seller obviously thought he sold me a junker but it just needed a cup seal and an o-ring in the bottom of the ASA to work fine. It's satisfying to run a gun older than I am sometimes.

I bought it knowing nothing about Mags and didn't want to take the time to learn or get it fixed. That's when I found Snipers and pumps became my life.
