I dealt with him a lot in my early years of collecting. Got some great items. Also got a lot of items that as I became more experienced as a collector, I felt were total turds with bad provenance. Too many to be a coincidence in my mind. Others had the same experience. The final straw was when i returned a Bulgarian Makarov and a 91/30 PEM which both had bad papers and I doubted the PEM with its "jungle made" base. He took them back and never refunded me for them, almost $4k. And he resold the sniper, with the bad paper to another collector.
