This seller has sold quite a few and uses the same picture every time, I'd be wary about purchasing these as original vintage??

He has sold other pairs that have yellowed but something doesn't sit right with me :? could be wrong though
If its Luke Jedi then I'm interested, vintage or modern.

The guy has a scrap yard full of at ats :) he has been tinkering with them for years and takes them apart and swaps bits over ect to sell on. He defo will know what price everything is worth and will know all about the repro parts available.
Chances are if something is cheap then it won't be original and I wouldn't have thought that over the last 8 years or so of building at ats he would have ended up with 6 pairs of original chin guns going spare.
That said I could be wrong, but this guy definatly knows if they are original so if they were he would state it clearly. Just my two pence worth :)

The Description : "

My question " Hi, are the chin guns original vintage or reproductions? Stock photo concerns me."

I've dealt with prats like this before with the poor excuse of, 'you should have asked all questions before buying.' listed as new - not original :shock: Perhaps eBay need to add a new selection, new, used, original.

If anything it proves the guy is trying to deceive as he managed to get an experienced collector into thinking they were legit so a newbie such as myself would be easily duped.

I was daft enough to buy one in October believing it was original. When put next to an original you could tell. As repos go it is good but was a bit pissed off with the non descript description.
