Hi Peter,

That's a tough one. Overall it looks quite good but on closer scrutiny all the margins and angles look a little soft and rounded which is strange. The round-wire catch looks a little thicker than usual and I haven't seen one in that silvered colour.

I think this one requires more study with accurate dimensions and weights and closeups of the hardware and margins, and it makes me uneasy as it is.

Here are a couple of "classic" examples from the classification thread for reference.

Best regards,
---Norm

Hi Norm,
Thanks for your reply and for posting the examples. I can see what you mean by the catch and also it seems to look a bit odd where the Swaz touches the periscope when compared with your examples. Also, I would have expected the base colour to have been more of a silver rather than the light brown colour. I will try and get some more pics, just to see if they can shed some more light on it.
Thanks very much for your help.
Peter

I echo Norm's reservations.
Here is mine for comparison.
Cheers,
Hubert

Thanks Hubert,
I may get some more pics of this and will post them if I do. The same observations apply when comparing the one I posted with yours as with Norm's
Thanks,
Peter

Hi Norm and Hubert,
I did not get any more pics, so gave it a wide berth.
Thanks,
Peter
