Was wanting one of these for a long time. A couple of months ago got a lead from a local fellow collector for a well used early version that I snapped up. A FettleBox seal kit into that one and it performs as it should. However, as things seem to go for me just as soon as I find one another better one seems to come along. Not that I'm complaining. This one was advertised..."as new"...and it could very well be. No smell of fuel in the tank and hard to tell with my eyes if it's ever been fired. If so it certainly wasn't very much. That said I think it's certainly a very clean version 22B.
