    i do not know why, but i always have the feeling that when the User ID kept private, the auction is fishy, but hey, that is my opinion :) 
    in a couple of day/week/month: the auction will be back and the same reason keep comming
    buyer did not pay
    error in the description
    second chance offert
    ...
    good luck to anyone that bid,
    i would bid on it but i get the feeling that i will get outbid

    please , whoever selling this, please do not take it wrong!!
    if you want me to delete this, i will :)

    This (or one absolutely identical to it) was up for sale a little over a year or so ago. Pretty sure the pictures are even the same.

    Beautiful, truly a piece of history.

    Who's to say this wasn't made recently by the same makers of the KO Swoop?

    I agree. I don't trust test shot stuff, never have never will. Who would spend a good 780 on a possible fake?

    Can't say for certain, I suppose - but this initially showed up WAY before there was even talk of the KO Swoop.

    On the other hand, there's no reason why the current KO Swoop maker couldn't produce a thousand just like this.

    Your right. I clearly remember seeing the same pictures around that time. Actually I think I posted it here the last time it was on ebay.

    Bingo. I don't doubt that there is or was original test shot Swoops from the 80's. But this may or may not be original. Caveat emptor.
