I have been offered a very good deal on what a seller has told me is a old version m9 ptp, and has a few problems, was wondering a few things;

What's the difference between the old one and the new one? (What's been changed)

Can it be updated?

Are there parts readily available for this older version?

These are important in my decision to buy, so please let me know. Thanks!

What's a "very good deal?"  These are only $150 or so new in box with warranty.

Ditto to Chuck's question.  If it's cheep (80 bucks) and you are ready to work on the gun, assuming the parts are available....go for it.  I can tell you this though, I have NEVER bought a used GBB gun.  They get messed up too easily from misuse by the owner.  But that is just me....

Have you looked at the cylinder nozzle?  What color is it?  That will help to tell if it is NS1 or NS2.  NS1 is silver (metal).  NS2 is black polymer.  I would stay away from the NS1's because the parts are not available.

The seller said it was purchased in late 2008, in working I getting the serial number now but is that time line good for ns2?

the holster by itself might be worth it.  But it is a matter of if you feel that $100 for the holster is worth it.  The gun on the other hand, is hard to say.
