Also, as we continue to clean things out in preparation for sale, we've come across several lots of unreconditioned military binos that we would love to move as-is. Most or all will need some work (e.g., cleaning, collimation, prism swapping, etc.), but we'll let 'em go cheap if anyone out there is looking for a summertime project and subsequent eBay or gun show windfall.
They are as follows: (a) six (6) pcs CZeiss-Jena/Nedensco 8x30 from 1920s; ( b) 12 pcs CZeiss-Jena DF 6x24 (also from 1920s); (c) 40 pcs WWII RAF 5x40, and (d) 140 pcs British 7x50 No. 5 (NATO issue).
NO REASONABLE OFFER REFUSED, so just let me know.
