I purchased both of these from ebay for little of nothing a few weeks ago, both are serialized. And the nosebridge and rubbers were horrible on both. I Sent them off the XMAN and he made them so tight that its not even funny! He is incredible! Installed Linegear gold mirror and white rubbers on the plasma frame, and instead of the "go to color" ruby in the Xmetal frame i decided to snag some VL Green Mirror and man pics dont do the justice. Great lenses, the base coat is an amber color..very nice and added new black rubbers.
