    I understand what you are saying here but if one takes the time to educate themselves, one can buy just about anything on this hobby. It seems that the art of 'homework' is lost on many...myself included. It took some bad buys by myself before I finally decided that I would only buy something if I knew 100% that what I was looking at was authentic. You can identify almost anything if you do your due diligence and study your item.

    Buying form a Veteran is not what it used to be. I see nearly as much junk in 'Vet Estates' than anywhere else anymore. You have to remember that many of these Veterans would commonly visit the gun show circuit back in the day and the fantasy and fakes have been around since the war was actually raging on.

    If you take the time and spend the money to acquire the best reference materials out there and you stay disciplined you will more than not come out a winner.

    Just my opinion of course.
