Authenticity of this Joy A1?



Can anyone confirm or deny if this A1 was in fact used my Joy Division? It was sold to me as being used by Maximus, and appears to resemble the A1 in the following picture. Serial number is Y2458.



Also the Stiffi that came with the gun is different then other Joy Stiffi's I've seen around, it has leopard print on the tip but the barrel reads:

JOY
Division
STHLM

Were these a limited edition barrel or were they specifically made for Joy Division?

If that is the gun i think it is then it was made for Maximus
like that, and is a 1 of 1. Thou it would not be too hard to copy that fade
and therefore it would be impossible to truly confirm 100%.
Still, the best way to confirm this is by tracking the serialnumber.

Serial number inside breech is Y2458, these pictures really don't do the gun justice, if I hadn't broken my camera I would snag some higher quality pictures, the anno is much darker in person and a lot closer to the color of the gun in the picture above of Maximus.

Sure looks like the one Max had, and those 'feel the joy' stickers
are pretty hard to find too.. so, i'd say it's Max's old gun for sure.

It looks a lot lighter in your picture than in the original. Im not sure if that was due to the lighting or what.

It's the lighting, this picture is somewhat closer to the true color,

came to me with the yellow cp reg (which has since been swapped for a black one) but it's plausible that joy could've swapped regs on it or the person i bought it from, joy was sponsored by cp though so it's not totally out of the question

EDIT: I'm the one who sold this to NO_NAME057

haha yeah this gun has swapped regs many times, i was hoping maybe it could be confirmed or denied by the serial number but i have a feeling that they would no longer have past serial numbers on hand...

Now how do you know that? if you notice its two different sides of the gun. Feel is in the black on one and feel is in gold on the other there for assuming its 2 different sides. And also someone pointed out the color and you said its the lighting but im almost positive even with lighting you can tell that the one max is holding is brighter because your gun matchs the grips almost perfectly when max's gun seems to be alot lighter then his grips. Then theres the fact that max's gun has a gold feed neck and yours does not. in the pic you got the side of max's gun where it looks like he has a black one with a gold lock but looking at other pics you can tell it has a gold feed neck.

THEN IF YOU WANNA GET REAL PICKY!!!! heres a pic of his a1 upclose at a clinic.
(( Notice in your picture where Joy is engraved where the gold meets where the J is dotted. On Max's gun from the clinic the gold doesnt meet the black.

http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z...s/IMG_2901.jpg

and your trigger is gold and his is black.

Just my 2 cents on it.

The sticker on both guns fold in the same spot right next to the J thou?
thats a little hard to mimic

and for the fade comment he has a second picture up down a little further of the other side

maybe if we could get a serial number for max's A1 then compare

Yeah my intention was to compare by a serial number or more definitive aspects of the gun rather than parts that are easily swapped. Would be nice to hear from Joy or perhaps one of their Tech's?

stickers from yours to his are on opposite sides but if you want more solid proof look at your first pic then look at this picture which is the same sides of the guns http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z...s/IMG_2901.jpg then look at your grip frame and then his yours doesnt fade like his yours is more solid further up his is not. The fade on his gun starts at the grip infact a hint of black is touching the grip yours doesnt come close.

Well It could be his Gun, But from what I can See the Trigger is Black and his Inline Reg is Stock Black. SO in less he switched out during or after the game, I personally dont think it is His. The change could of been made by the person before u did, or before that person, so u really dont know for sure, But if the Serial Numb. is Right, then changes have been made that He(Maximus) Wouldnt have done himself.
