This is not to crap on any sale by any means, and I get the rarity of sample/protos, and demand for some in that, but for me, they change things for a reason, and for a better. I have yet to see a sample or proto anything, other than the white lights in the back of F14 compared to the red flashers (minor dif though), that I really would care for over the standard.
Everyone makes a big deal about a proto IJ mini PF for example. The red side rails are much better than the stainless.
This hobby really doesn’t put much value into rarity over a good “winning” machine design. Rare usually means less good, and they made less because of that.
I’m talking in general here, and still understand at the end of the day a sample/proto will go higher than a standard, but not out of my wallet.
CV though is gorgeous either way. Don't sell.
