I picked this up locally off Craigslist (price is unimportant, though I can tell you with confidence it was a steal), and needless to say, I'm super excited about it. The guy I bought it from told me it was previously owned by a Pittsburgh Steeler (some name I cannot recall anymore) who had it "custom painted" for him.. I nodded my head, was respectful, and knew I would be bringing it to the real authority on automag history--AO.
I don't know much of the history behind this and would be happy for some insight.
What's the story behind the splash? It is green, black and silver.
What's the story behind the valve? Matching valve: SM01315. Came with a lvl 10 that I learned only after getting it home and opening it up.
What's the story with the smart parts writing on the back of the Benchmark?
Does anyone have a matching power feed plug they would let me buy from them?
Finally, is there a way I can rock a tank on this guy (either ASA or drop/ASA) while still keeping the stock attached?
