    My Selmer Radial C99 purchased late 80s, I think old stock sn 658xx has bore of 0.468", larger than the B700L. FWIW.

    Regards, Stuart.

    The guy I was dealing with was very difficult and paranoid, he would not send pics. I do not know if this is the same person.

    I just got one yesterday ...I've been wanting to get one and was lucky to find one in my home town. It was a tad dirty and pistons were grungy but I gave it a quick clean up and WOW. Pistons are slick like my Olds Recording and warm sweet sound come out of it. 5 Inch Bell looks nice...:play: the only thing I can say negative about it is it's front heavy. I guess if you play it for hours you could get tired but over all it's a very nice horn...quality made.

    I own one. It's my main horn, and really serves me well.
