Man!, I need some sleep! Noticed the replies, thought I try to get off one myself. Hope I make sense. They had a boothe at a show abought 90 miles from their shop. I did not have a bore light with me that particular time, but I was sure that I locked the action open and peeked in from the muzzle end at least one time. I had looked at that particular pistol shortly after I got there, and went back to there booth to buy it about four or five Hours later I have a lot of health problems, it kills me to stand more than 10 to 15 min. at a time, so I was one hurt'n unit and was to the point I really needed to get out of there. Out of all the vendors there nobody else had that same model. I guess the main points to this are .Did they switch barrels after I came back to buy it . I can not say without a doubt that they did, after looking at so many, and then going back to buy, it"s possible that I didn't inspect the barrel the last time. They told me it was the same pistol from earlier. The mags, I took them at there word that they were new factory so I didn't see them. One thing that I do know, is they told me the gun was new,it was in a display case with all new guns, and I told them that this would be my first brand new pistol that I have ever owned. They knew what they were doing. I didn't Mark did have it in his hand when he was digging around behind the counter getting together the case and the other stuff, where I couldn't see what he was doing. A buddy of mine since told me that it's common for dealers to try to get rid of the stuff at the shows that nobody will buy at there store. I guess my main concern now is to remind others to use common sense and make darn sure you know what you are getting before you hand over your hard earned money and walk out the door!!!!!!!!!!! Especially if you ever trade with these guys. P.S It does seem to shoot fairly well. I have a lot of rust on, but I,m hitting beer can consistantly from 50 meters, although part of the time the last round bolt hold open doesn't lock open.
Got to call it a night,
