What were the major differences (aesthetic and performance wise) between the different MKs?

Is there a general consensus as to which were "the best" in terms of build quality, longevity of internals/use, accuracy, etc? Which is most sought after by collectors and why?

Also, were any of these offered with O-ringed pistons vs the standard Theoben "piston crown"? If so, how did these compare to "standard" Eliminators?

I don't have access to a Blue Book, if anyone can take a pic of the relevant Theoben pages and share here or send them to me that'd be awesome.

Thanks for looking!

Back in the late 90s I sold a guy I worked with my like new cromag3. It was just too big and balky for me. I am still in contact with this man. He says he has shot it thousands of times and he will not part with it. I have offered my selling price to get it back, but he will not sell. I am now back into big and balky (I now have 3 RXs). He sold all his powder burners when money was short, but says the crow mag will be handed down. I guess he likes it!
