Would 7 keys be a reasonable sell price.
So, a few days ago, I bought a strange specialized killstreak scattergun and I found out it was 4 keys. And I just checked on backpack.tf to see what it is worth, and it says the strange part on it is critical kills and that it's worth 2.90 keys, so would the price of my scattergun be raised or would it stay the same.

No, its a regular scattergun, and thats low tier, basically the people who can pay big for a scatter aren't going to want a regular one for the most part.

Think of it as nice rims on a beater, but welded on, price to sell...
MA. But dude. This is a strange specialized killstreak scattergun with a violet sheen with critical kills on it.

Yea well thats like 2000 dollar rims welded to a 1995 honda civic, its worth something to the owner, but reselling it is going to be very hard.

I'm just saying the potential buyers out there are going to be very few, so you will have to offer a bargain.
And I believe according to backpack.tf the critical kills strange part is 2.90 keys. Which should add to the scattergun

Usually when the kit is attached to a weapon, it loses value. People would rather put the kit on their own weapon than buy a weapon with the kit already attached. The part might add more, but not much, as a lot of people will pay little to nothing for parts.

Not true at all. Not everyone wants a festive, australium, or bottkiller version of a strange. Many like the original look and feel of a weapon. Especially the stock weapons such as the scattergun.

So no it its not like put 2000 dollar rims on a 1995 honda civic. Its more like put 2000 dollar rims on a 1972 ford mustang instead of a 2014 ford mustang. Both are awesome. One is just classic.

Yes it still is, because the person who is that particular and has 7 keys is likely to also be able to just buy the components themselves off the market, their own choice of color and the rest. Person unconcerned about bling is also likely a person who doesn't want to pay for a sheen, or will pay a high price regardless.

So you just keep narrowing the potential pool of buyers, and so you have to adjust to the market you are dealing with.

Its just in a weird middle area where its too expensive to appeal to the cheap players who would be happy to have anything, and not blinged out enough for the people who have 7+ keys to throw at 1 weapon. If it were something like a professional then it might be different. I'm not saying he can't sell it for max price, but it would be extremely lucky if he could pull that off.

I mean would you buy it for 7 keys if you had it?

Just look at the bargain being sold for ~3 keys

and I still wouldn't buy it:P I'm sure someone would but its still not fire sale priced.

adds half the price of parts

a fair price set will be 4refs (strange scatter)+ 2 Keys (Specialized kit)+ 1 Key (Part) = 3.5 Keys (you can round it to 4 Keys)

Yea that feels about right.

For strange parts ALREADY ON weapons, the price is around 1/2 normal price. So the price of the part would be 1.5 keys or so added onto the price of scatter.

Again it depends on the item. If it were crit on an australium, that guy could ask for most of the value, and the buyer would probably be fine with it because they probably would have bought it anyways. On a cheap item an expensive part pushes it out of the comfortable price range of most buyers, so it has to be heavily discounted.

The base value of the item matters.
