That Sears 6345 90 mm eq. has dropped from 1500 to 1200 and its right here on CN. Seems like a more inline price now. Somebody in the group gonna get it? (Not me, I'm full up right now.)




I started to make a post last night and then deleted it. Let me just state this...

After the 6345 had just 3 views, I wrote the seller and said I would buy it for the $1500 asking price and pick it up. I heard nothing. Then, I saw more pictures added and sent him another email offering to buy it for $1500 and pick it up. No response. Now, I wrote and said I would buy it for $1200 and pick it up. We shall see. Conclusions left to you all (I can come up with many, some good, some not)

vintage 60mm Scope scope on eBay [Re: terraclarke]

Somebody here has got to get this. It's been sitting for a week and its only 60 bucks! Only 2 hrs left! I've been so tempted over the past few days but I need another 60mm scope like I need a hole in the head! This looks to be a good deal for the money.

That scope is identical to the Scope Orbit I have.
I thought it was listed as a Sears, whoops, it is a Scope Orbit

I own one of those! It's in my office! I paid $50 and picked up at NEAF.

Finally heard from Leonard on his 6345. Wants to know if I still want to buy it at $1500. LOL! I told him he probably should have used real information when he signed up so he would have received my offers.

I wonder if "leonard" and "lenny" are the same person? Still no picture of the objective. And zero bids at his starting bid.

Yup, same Leonard, same Sears scope, (at least same pictures). It's been removed from the CN classifieds where it was listed for 1200 and listed at the same price on eBay!? Go figure? Guess he'd rather give some of the 1200 to eBay than keep it all? Weird that he wouldn't sell it to a member on here who made a solid offer for 1500? Many questions???
