    Anyone knows this gentleman and if these sextants (for $50) are still available?
    I am looking for a bubble sextant to be used on a plane.
    Thanks for any comments, suggestions...

    Alex and others,
    
    I agree with Robert about the MK IX being good. We used to sell them for a
    while. My high school aged son overhauled them without any problems. There
    were 2 models: an A model which had no averager, and a B model which had a
    large cylindrical averager sticking out the forward end. The wind-up
    averager is really of no use unless you are shooting from an airplane, so we
    just sold the A model. When these ran out, we simply lopped off the
    averager of a B model with a hacksaw, and voila- it became an A model We
    probably have 50 to 100 of these left over in a self storage unit. I would
    be glad to sell some of these for, say- $50 each (which is mainly for the
    effort of digging through them to find the decent ones). For that matter,
    we also have piles of A-10s, A10As and AN 5851-1s too. I probably will never
    do anything with them, so if someone wants to come to Wichita with a
    trailer, I can make you a deal on the lot.
