However one thing which I remember clearly, is that there was a decal on the rear part of the trigger frame, right below the valve, that said "NelSpot 007" in gold colored script writing. I remember my friend's field when I started playing in 1987, the guns were still in good enough condition that they all had those decals on them. Of course given the hands and playing style of a bunch of wild kids, the decals did not last too long...

So...how come I never, ever, see photos of guns with those decals on them? I know I wasn't imagining it because I even owned one once the field upgraded to Rapides.

Yeah, i knew there was the "707" but i keep hearing about a pre 007 model, but its been described as just the "Nelspot"...and if someone has a pic of that decal it would help me out a little, i'm restoring my 007
thanks
