    That's my understanding as well but really, why not just build the gun that everyone seems to want? The threads I am talking about are full of pages and pages of guys asking for the proper trench model.

    Donít complain, a few years back the not so famous Marstar imported a bunch of these Chinese M97ís and the markings were worse than these and he sold them for $450. Even had MARSTAR printed on the barrel and surprisingly didnít have JOHN on the barrel as well if you know what I mean.

    You want to buy one?
    Turf the TURD

    At first I was a bit pissed that I paid way more for the one Marstar is selling 2 months ago, but mine has a choke tube and none of those import markings so that takes the sting out of it a little.
