Thread: One for the optics experts

    One for the optics experts

    Dear all,

    I have a Pecar Berlin 8x56 to sell, it is the Premiun model, my problem is I don't know what it is worth, do I set a price and put it on here or put it on e-bay. I have heard reports that they go for silly money on e-bay and that is likely to be my best bet, any clues as to it's value. It obviously shows it's age in terms of it's finish but it has no dings or scratches and the optics are perfect.

    I recently bought a 6x45 pecar champion for 175 off eBay . I am sure there was an 8x56 for sale at the same time , it went for around 250. I would have thought that would be a reasonable price for a second hand quality scope from a company that is no longer in business

    they can go for great prices on ebay. but when you look at listing fees,final fee and postage sometimes it dont always work out as good.

    i would put it on here at the price you think its worth. then if it doesnt sell knock it down abit at a time. if no luck then ebay the item

    Also bear in mind that eBay can be funny about "firearms-related" items. I had a listing for a magazine for a Tikka pulled recently... Mind you, I listed the same item a month or so earlier and it wasn't questioned.

    Hi John

    as for ebay (i have not used it yet) but i have been talking to mates as i need to sell the leupold, the wife got the cash from the S&B so this ones mine ,

    anyway, my best mate kev sells lots of fishing tackle etc on the bay and he has sold some rifle scopes too. he says try to keep words like rifle. gun, shooting etc out of the title etc this will help it to have a low profile on there heads up system they use on the bay,

    as for price 250 to 350 depending on the condition, the premium scopes are well thought of and in the past made lots of really good money, im not one for ebay but as things are tight i need to get the best prices for the things i have for sale,

    but i can't stop myself from selling on forums it just feels right to let someone who wants it get it etc.

    bob.

    I've sold a few on evilbay and they have made some very good money. There is a 8 x 52 one on there now which you should watch. Also have a look at the completed listings as there a a few which sold for a good amount. Be careful when advertising though as some of them have a 26mm tube which will not fit in a 1" ring! As Bob said, probably worth around the 300 mark. What reticle does it have as some are interchangeable?

    Decent scopes sell well on e-bay, but as for all things shooting, list them on e-bay.com not e-bay.co.uk.
