It is a C&P bubble horizon and $600 is more or less the going price for them. As you note, it does not have a bubble adjuster, but in my opinion, the design of the reticle makes an adjustment all but unnecessary. I have one like this, plus an A10 bubble converted for a marine sextant (thanks, Bill Morris!) and two Plath models (not Firefly). I'd rank the C&P first, the A10 second, and the Plaths 3rd. To put it another way, I always reach for the C&P first, and the Plaths are gathering dust in a drawer.
