Apparently I had one of these backordered from last spring. I figured that I would offer it up here before I send it back. It is brand new and only removed from rhe box for the pics. My initial impression is that it is really well made. All the machining is clean and accurate. The finish is one of, if not the, best I have seen on a stock forged upper. If I wasn't taking my kid to Disneyland in a couple of weeks and need the money I would keep it. I have $105 into it and that is what I need to get out of it. Thanks.
