If the purchase is through Ebay, email other buyers and ask their opinion. I have purchased two SNO-Ts. The first one was missing the 4.5X scope. The seller was listed as
Floridabut the package came from . The second had both scopes but the sextant was damaged in transit. Can anyone recommend a repair shop in Bombay ? Canada

Subject: Soviet Sextants!
Can anyone attest to the quality of these Soviet Sextants and legitimacy of seller? Looks like some good deals( or maybe not!) for folks who are in market for metal sextants. Maybe the saying " If it's too good to be true it probably is" may ring true! Your comments are appreciated and thanks much!
