I've been interested in a HP Carbine for a while but never made the move until my birthday, a couple weeks ago. GunBroker had a 995TS with no bids for $199. Turns out that I win the auction and I picked it up yesterday. Today I finally get to opening up everything and geez...everything - paperwork, sling, take down tool, magazine - but the scope (which is mounted) is still in the factory packaging. The stuff has never been opened. At this point, I'm assuming this is basically a 'new' 995 that's never been fired. It actually looks like it was bought some years ago and put into a closet or whatever and never used or abused. The receiver cover has a few small areas of very light surface rust...like it's never been cleaned and oiled. Dang, I never have this kind of luck!
