    Nice looking saw. :) :)

    Where does it fit into the gamut with all the other saws.

    Does it fill a niche that the others didn't?

    Nope, it doesn't really . It's just one of the saws I've always wanted . Being as its ported , it's one heck of a fun saw to run ! She's really a very responsive little beasty .

    Anybody who owns a 372XP, 044 (or 440), AND a 460 has Stage 4 CAD. What? All those saws are professionally ported too? Jeez, No hope for this guy. (Tosses his scrubs in the trash.)

    No, that was what to me was per-cad . 2cycle RC engines , tuned pipes, 25% nitro........then I bought my first really good saw, the 044. :)

    Take a good look at the pro saws. Last 460 i look at (about 4 months ago) Still say made in Germany.

    It was a new saw wasn't it? I don't think he even ran it stock. Did ya' Nixon? :)

    MS440 and up are German, MS362 I dunno any more. Everything else is Made in USA (Virginia Beach) if it's sold here.

    Check the serial #'s. First digit =1 then it's German, 2 = USA.

    My 034 says made in West Germany on it. :)
