I've known of their existence since about 1991 - saw one in a pawn shop then.  Hadn't seen one since.  Then, last year one came up on GB - had to have it.  It's now part of my collection.  Took it out and shot half dozen cylinders full through it.  Pretty accurate little carbine, and fun to shoot.  It's been languishing in my gun safe ever since.
