You don't often see one of these sporterized, if you bought it, I bet you'd be the only one on the block to have one! I've talked to several people that indicated the Type I was very accurate. Here are some pics....Please excuse the orientation of the 'click here....' verbiage, after bragging on postimage.org this morning, it looks like they've screwed the pooch again, they appear to be inserting the 'click here' text along the longest side of the picture.....At least the images show up.....

I got a Type I in original condition for $375 about a year ago and I considered myself to be lucky. Sporterized stock must drive the value towards $200. I never heard about ground mum because, I think, there was no mum on Type I.
