Ron, that's a very good price for a CLA'd model. If I didn't have other priorities, I'd snatch it up in a moment.

Original Poster
To clarify, CLA was done when I bought the camera from a friend (original owner). That was somewhere between '99 and '03. I contacted Pentax Customer Service earlier this week to reference the CLA timing--they can look it up by serial number right? Nope, nothing in the system before 2004. Probably purged the system on me. Less than 20 rolls since Pentax service. Foam looks quite nice, perhaps replaced when serviced? No sticky mirror issues or anything either. Just a real nice shooter. And again, with no wear on the pressure plate (original plate) or film rails inside, I hesitate to guess just how little actual photo work this body has done. If you've owned other film bodies, you've seen how quickly the paint wears on the corners of the pressure plate and on the film rails. This thing is just fresh on the inside.
