just seeking opinions Can't Post

I'm in the market for my first rig and found one at my local dropzone. Javelin container, spectre 170 main (can fit 190), 176 reserve, aad included for $1750, only 50 jumps. I think it's a good deal, just want to see what others think.

Some thing is wrong. Much too cheap for 50 jumps on any component, let alone if it's 50 on all. More information is needed. The AAD must either be expired or not approved for that container (some have a hard life limit, some a soft life expectation and some are not approved and some are not worth having). Even discounting the AAD it's STILL too cheap for 50 jumps. More information is needed to know what's up. Oldest spectre could be is 97 but rig and reserve could be much older.

Maybe it is a typo and is actually 500 jumps? For lightly used kit that could put it at being from the turn or the century...

Sounds like a good deal to me.
Questions:
1. H/C DOM?
2. Reserve DOM?
3. Type and DOM on the AAD?
