    Re: SNO-Ts on eBay with Horizon Mi rror Installed

    Just type SNO-T into eBay. All his sextants are photographed inside the open yellow box. He says he brings them from Russia disassembled. I am trying to get from him why.

    Please give me a link, I have not seen them.
    If they messed with the mirrors, apparently without knowledge of what
    they were doing, I would be cautious. There are nice looking SNO-T on
    e-bay with no signs of incorrect handling.
