    Re: Soviet Sextants!

    I have not purchased a Soviet sextant, but I have used my friends and it was
    as good as my Freiberger. Because you can buy the Freiberger for within a
    few dollars of the Soviet one, what are you gaining? It�s easier to get
    parts or have the Freiberger serviced and I would feel more comfortable with
    it, if for that reason and nothing else.
