Sold as B. vagans? 1/3

This T was sold to me as B. vagans, but I'm confused about the red hairs on his legs. So, I'm thinking hybrid or maybe B. sabulosum? Any ideas? He moulted today. His moult was 3,5", he should be about 4" now. The picture was taken with flash. I'll add an additional picture without flash.
@Goopyguy56 Well, maybe the legs look a bit like a B. albo, but everything else looks different. I have a male B. albo (Honduras) about the same size and he definitely looks different. ;) I'm gonna take another picture in a week or so when he has hardened up and especially the carapace had time to darken up. Hopefully, then it'll become clearer. ;)
 
here is my sabulosum

and my 2 vagans for comparison
 
@Killertut Hey, danke fuer die Bilder!! :)

Looking at your first pic of your B. sabulosum, it looks almost exactly like mine. Maybe he is indeed B. sabulosum? I'll probably never know for sure though. ;)
 
here is some more redrump species though, maybe it helps:

B. epicureanum

B. verdezi

B. kahlenbergi
