There has been a few occasions where the stars are lined up correctly!! This was pretty unbelievable as I asked an old friend and collector if he had one and he said yes ,brand new in the plastic bag with all paperwork.It even has the 2 screw 3 ball trigger. Furthermore I fired off some shots and added some oil since it sat for 31 years in the box and when I chronied it the JSB Express 7.8gr pellets were spitting out at 684 fps average over 15 shots!! Now I have another lucky find last year .I found and won a brand new unfired in the box with paperwork Feinwerkbau 127D from 1976!! About 12 years ago I also had the dumb luck of probably getting the last brand new Sharp Ace Hunter 22cal impotted to the US. Now if this is what I can run into I can just imagine all the rest thats sitting in boxes out there!!!
