not suprise at all. there all reports that arms dealers, in lieu with the ppl in charge of savage dumps and refurbish old, used up weapons or weapon system to sale to buyers that are.. a bit cash strapped...or are facing a transportation problem(like the insurgents in Iraq, although I doubt they lack any of this).
As for the hissing and smoke problem with the 95, the smoke is from too much lube. if u use too much, that's what happens. but switching from conventional layout to bullup is a bit of getting use to.
Type 03 is....i dont like it, just personal opinion.
