So I found this on Ebay, from a seller I have bought way too much stuff from.
I was happy to win the bid, and eagerly waited the brown truck honking his horn in my driveway.
As always with this seller, it was very well packed in a sturdy box.
Now come's the bad news.
Due to it's age, and the fact that 98% of the unit is plastic, portions of this beauty did not survive transit.
The barrel broke off at the chamber, just past the forend and one half of the "magazine", was just dust in the bottom of the box.
I dont believe when these were produced in the 80's, much thought was given to longevity, or that in the far future of 2022, someone would be still shipping them cross country!
If you are a aficionado of ancient airsoft, do take this into account if you feel the need to buy one online.
This all being said, I am still thrilled to have this in my small collection
(about 600 or so)
I will do a review on it with some pic's of how it stands now, soon.
I have debated into turning it into a copy of the
"Silent Sniper System"
if I can not find another magazine for it
(even though it is not a Winchester model 70)
See ya soon,
Stay Thirsty, My Friends
