Actually, I think you may have gotten a better deal than buying a new one, as the older ones had many parts that were metal vs. the current plastic substitutes. I don't mind buying/using guns that were DESIGNED with plastic parts/frames (this IS Glock Talk, after all), but when a gun has metal parts and suddenly the manufacturer changes over to plastic, it just seems to cheapen the product. Warped parts (look closely at the barrel band on those new 10/22s), mold marks (trigger housing), and even casting marks on the bottom of the barrel's front sight band. It's sad.

Im glad that I went with an older one that has metal parts then. I didnt really know that. I didnt do any research on this gun aside for the whole modifications aspect. I really wasnt even looking for one at the time
