    Packaging differences SBDX019 / SLA017

    For a limited edition of 2000 pieces I really don't see the point of having two separate reference models.

    This is a post for those who care about the minor differences. Boxes are exactly the same.

    Believe me when I say this didn't warrant a separate topic taking up valuable front-page real-estate, instead it could have been posted under one of many 62MAS re-issue threads.

    Isn't the instruction booklet for the SLA017 you've show, the one from 7S, 4R etc calibers?

    Yes you got me! Sharp eyes Toshk. I made a mistake and couldn't be bothered to get the correct booklet as the correct booklet looks virtually identical.

    Here is the proper instruction booklet for SLA017!

    These details can actually be interesting and important to collectors. Someday in the future someone may be questioning the strange paperwork included with their SBDX019, and research their way back to this thread to verify that it is in fact correct.

    This may also help limit endless speculation\posts about fakes, "was I ripped off", etc. I'm sure unboxing video's will be showing up on YouTube soon. This thread and those videos will be appreciated by those who are interested in that kind of thing.
