Yeah I hear ya, but to be fair the re-release didn't really stand apart from the original....SL68 2.5?
The receiver and pump handle were the only changes to the design and hardly affected performance or style points. Oh, but I did forget that the feedneck was updated to accept modern hoppers, so it does have that going for it.
Sorry OP for the thread-jack. Back to Nelson guns, the Lapco Grey Ghost is an oft overlooked, but solid performer if you are OK with center feed. The vintage GG's had right side feeds however.
