    This guy is NOT a collector/shooter,.......he's a flipper! He buys a lot at Gun Shows,
    then marks them up and resells.

    If only he would've left it in the box, he could've sold it for $3200.

    He isn't a flipper. He is wealthy realtor down in Florida and has a HUGE collection. We have traded a bit. Nice guy.

    I agree it's totally unnecessary and a shame.... but at the current $380 bid, I'd buy it twice.

    The porting is a deal breaker for me. There's no way in hell I'd own that.

    Can't you just duct tape the porting if you do not want it?
