    Hello,
    
    Some time ago somebody here had been interested in an
    aircraft mount for a Kollsman periscopic sextant. I have one which I
    would consider to part with. It is (as far as I can deduct from an
    inspection stamp on it) an ex US Air Force 28 Volts version. It is in a
    general good condition (pressure orifice works, sextant clamping
    mechanism ok, counter works, electric works, comes with a power supply
    cable), however, it has two issues I know of:
    
    1. The light bulb housing for the counter illumination is missing.
    
    2 There is a somewhat loose connection between the lower and the upper
    part. I can see some old degraded sealant at this split (please the
    photo where my thumb is pointing to it) but I am not sure if some bolts
    are loose or missing inside that prevent rotation and some axial
    movement between the parts. I don't want to disassemble the mount in
    order to find out.
    
    For genral condition see attached photos.
    
    In case somebody is interested to aquire this mount I would accept
    offers in US Dollars or Euros (transfer via Paypal). Shipping  is from
    Germany.  Shipping cost have to be evaluated separately and shall be
    borne by the buyer. Interested parties may contact me directly under:
    w.r.l(at)gmx.net
    
    Regards,
    
    Werner Luehmann
