I have, a couple months ago. My very first arm. Paid extra for hand pick and EG maintenance papers. It was fully intact and excellent looking. One had to look real hard with a magnifier in the right light for blemishes in the bluing. I put the worst scratch (very faint) on it trying to figure out how to remove the extractor (shoulda looked for online advise first). 600+ rounds and only 4 fail to fires (all fired with a second whack), which I ascribe to the Norinco round. No FTF or FTE with numerous rounds each of Norinco FMJ, Corbon PwrBall, Hornaday HP, Silver Bear HP, S&B FMJ. Probably 2K dry fires (with wadded paper cushion between hammer face and firing pin). All in all, I want to get another one from them. With the Coles available, there is no reason to buy comparable cost otherwise used (without some value added pedigree feature)
