Has this happened to you?

I grabbed a "Mistral" of the shelf that had been patiently been waiting for rebuild and this is what went down. As you can see, it appears as just another poor Mistral that hasn't seen action in years (BELOW).

Upon opening the reg, I got a Fathom 50 "Polaris?" suprise!

Never got Voit guts but I bought a DA off ebay and much to my surprise it had a very rare complete Royal Master (NOT RAM) nozzle assembly installed. I contacted the seller who claimed to be the original owner asking how it got in there and he claimed no knowledge of how it got changed....and I made sure to let him know I was very very happy to get it and that I was just interested in the story.
Now if I could just find the proper label .
