Default Border pipe drones on ebay?

Hey all, came across this set of borderpipe drones on ebay. While I like the look, I'm curious what your take is on them. It almost looks like someone took 1/2 sized bagpipe drones and stuck them in a common stock. Can anyone discern them?

I agree, the weird bit on the standing joint is where someone removed the width of the mount so they would fit in a common stock.

Stock itself looks distinctly homemade.

All in all, I would not.

I messaged the seller because he has photos of two different sets of drones on there, but he's only selling one.

Now he acknowledges the photo mistake. Odd that he says he can't edit his listing, whenever I've sold anything on Ebay I can edit the listing at any time.

Anyhow I've seen common-stock drones styled like that before. They don't strike me as being unusual.

Given the other homemade looking set of drones they posted the photo of, I’m having little doubt that they (had) made (for them) the common stock and turned down the mounts on a 1/2 size set so they’d fit the common stock. I can’t tell if they’re border appropriate drones or smallpipe.
