That sucks, I bought an old PGP from an auction once that had an old red (shell and fill so ya know its ancient) ball in the barrel. I shot it out straight down from the second story of my house onto concrete and it BOUNCED
That one got a lot of TLC before I played with it.
I also found teflon tape wrapped around the electrical connections on my e-mag (Insulating them so they had no power) when I first stripped it down. Guy who sold it to me was an idiot.
Always a good Idea to take them apart first.
