    Re: Soviet Sextants!

    I bought a couple but must say,...
    
    1-make sure you get both scopes
    
    2-the seller's are not reliable [I consider myself lucky to have not
    lost money entirely or received an unusable sextant]
    
    3-you'll wait a LONG time to receive your purchase
    
    4-Ebay won't protect you. Period.
    
    5-the instrument will be in poor repair when you receive it and will not
    be packaged properly, i.e. without insurance you're really hanging out
    there   :-)
    
    But,
    
    1-they are good sextants
    
    2-they cost less
    
    
    HTH
