I't it great to live in this country, where we would pay 12-20 k for this if it was here, and 10k and 10 years in prison for trying to import it?

Ouch! That just hurts to look at it. I do feel a lot better knowing the mag had its lips filed off.

With the mag's lips filed off, it can't "squeal to the Feds", right? OK, I hear all the groans. Yeah, it is a shame, and guaranteed jail time with purchase!

I thought this auction looked familiar. Looks like the same seller sold same gun on 5/8/04 to a buyer in N.J. for $2700.

Sgt.,

Prior listing says "Spain" but who knows. Could just be a store front in Spain when really in Bellarus, Ukraine, Latvia, Russia, or wherever.

Actually, the picture shows a gun with some nasty but not widespread pitting. Could be the cosmoline was not well applied in all cases.
