Default MZ experts lend me your knowledge

hey guys and gals, I was looking around on craigslist for fun and ran across what looked like an mz for $20. so of course i couldn't pass that up.

picked it up yesterday and did some research. basically i've come to the conclusion that it's this hookah

http://www.mzidanshisha.net/gallery/horas1.html

everything matches up. the only things that bothered me were that the tray doesn't have the mz stamp like my white pear does. the purge valves are different and the stem isn't riveted right out of the vase like my pear.

i checked out john's mini mz's that he has up on the site still

http://**********.com/product.sc?pro...0&categoryId=9

there's no rivets there so i guess they just don't do that on the mini models. i just don't know if his trays were stamped or not. not that it makes a difference it's still a well built rig that smokes great and 20 bucks is a steal. it's curious to me that they wouldn't stamp these trays though.

i haven't seen any mz knockoff companies like km has but that doesn't mean they're not out there. however i'm 99% certain this is the horas they have on their site.

i guess what i'm asking from you guys is to just confirm with me what i already know haha

thanks for any input you guys have!

I would say that it is most likely a MZ, if not, and it smokes well, then who cares lol!

but seriously, sounds like you got yourself a great deal there. enjoy.

that's what i figure, either way it smokes great and it's a quality rig. the lady i got it from used to have a lounge in her dorm in college or something, now she's graduated and is having a kid and her husband said it was time for it to go. her loss is my gain gotta love craigslist.

i was hoping though that John would poke his head in here and clarify if his mini trays were stamped or not. it'd be interesting to know at least.

Mine isn't riveted and I bought it from john a few monthes ago. Even if it isn't an MZ, as long as it smokes well and is in good condition...does it really matter?

If i remember correctly the smaller trays do not have the MZ logo stamped on them.
I could be wrong but I'll make sure and check for you to make sure.

I think they it very easily could be, buy it doesn't really matter because an mz is just a generic style pipe with a brand stamp anyway.

I purchased one of those in a shop for my brother and the clerk assured me it was an MZ. None of the MZs they carried were stamped or clearly marked as an MZ there but they are a very reputable shop.

Not all MZs are ribbed, and some generic Egyptians are. Sometimes it's really difficult to ascertain whether or not a rig is an MZ knock-off. If it still has the black rubber base grommet, wet it and pull it off and take a look at it. Usually, even if the original tray has been replaced, the original base grommet will bear the Magdy Zidan name on the lip.

Either way it seems like you got a great deal and if it smokes well then that's all that matters.
