Additional Information: 

This one is obviously a Minute Man variant.  I'm thinking it has some wild war name but we'll not know what it is until we find some long lost ad.  Heh...

It cleaned up well and I just happened to have a crystal for a Minute Man laying around.

Something a little different with this guy... a 17 Jewel, 7AP.  For some reason I had it in my head all the 7A* series were 21 Jewels.  Interesting.

Here's the before pic:
