Hi LRC would you have a 'best price' in mind to include postage. Cheeky question but we are quite close.
more like 2k
Best you buy it for £1750 then, you will be quids in!
I would also invite you to read point six - and it's subsection - of the rules summary at the top of the page.
On a more personal note, if I had the money I would have bought this myself.
Just to interject
My mate has just paid nearly £3K for a brand new one of these after a year wait as this is a long range target scope (second focal plane) which is currently unavailable and on a long wait list. At £1750 its a ****ing bargain. Someone report the robbery to the old bill quickly.
Sods law if I'd seen this 2 weeks ago He'd be over a grand better off.
Anyway, that's the way the cookie crumbles.
I can't understand why participants feel the need to 'chip in' on a private exchange between two people with their assessments of value. The only persons opinion that is of any worth to me on this is the sellers so I guess you can figure the rest!?
At the moment Optics Warehouse is selling the same scope with FFP and not SFP and with AInturrets new for £2295 so KG283 I suggest you keep your value statements to your self with regards to your 'mate' who was clearly required a specific optic not readily available and probably attracting a premium the comparison is not relevant. Also the essence of this Northwest is you havent got the money, I have, what does that tell you, and I have read the rules and don't see where my request contravened them.
i have now PM'd LRC directly, which I should have done in the first place, and had a prefectly amicable exchange about the price. This is the reason why I don't participate in these fora much because of this with the resulting irrelevant and unrequested opinions on a matter that doesn't concern them. As a new member I regret having to take this stance and, as an 'open' forum, it can't be prevented but I didn't post the original message to solicit the unwelcome response of others.
Well said Topdogpippin ,
