Older Sigma 400mm prime ID help

I could not find much info on this Sigma 400 manual focus prime. I have no specific
model number info to go on.
Does it look familiar to anyone, any first hand usage reports.
I don't have it just looking to may by buy.

Thanks
Mike C.

The non-APO version isn't as good.

This is the non APO version IIRC.
I've used this lens and I found it very difficult to get a good image from it. It was my first year of photography and I had the stock screen in my K10D, so I would blame user error to a big extent.
This is the best image I was able get using a small tripod. Click to view larger.

I don't think the one I was looking at is the same version as the one in the reviews.
I think I'm going to pass on the lens and keep looking for good 400mm prime.
