    Re: Choosing right A-10: how to?

    Certainly I'll ask a seller if I can see through the instrument etc, before the purchase, but WHAT ELSE should I ask him?


    By way of practice, if you were thinking of buying an A7, which is also quite small, you might like to ask the vendor of this item why anyone would want to take the sextant altitude of their own navel? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-U-S-WWII-Army-Air-Corps-Type-A-7-Aircraft-Octant-By-Bendix-Aviation/264545809637?hash=item3d9828b4e5:g:C38AAOSwZy1d27jb DaveP

    Vintage U.S. WWII Army Air Corps Type A-7 Aircraft Octant By Bendix Aviation.

    This fantastic piece has some light age related wear but is generally in a good clean condition when considering its age.
    A fantastic WW2 era collectable aviation piece.
    The octant comes with its original protective carry case.
    The device measures approximately 18cm by 18cm.
    If you have any questions please message me.
    Many thanks, Alex.
