BTW, the large lots of binoculars from SGW are those that have been returned, are in such bad shape no one bid on them when repeatedly listed previously, or are in such crappy condition they never bothered to list them in the first place. They're returns/rejects so bid accordingly for parts, optics, or to repair.
I learned this the hard way after talking with SGW about a large lot of what looked like nice binoculars I purchased and turned out to be a disaster. They told me the large lots are pretty much just for people looking for parts. Out of the lot of 15 binoculars I received, every single one had major problems and none of them were even close to being in functional condition. Some were even missing eyepieces and objective lenses. There was absolutely no info in the description, no warnings or head''s up about the missing items, and they very cleverly hid the problems in the pictures by shooting from angles/directions to avoid showing the obvious problems/missing parts.
I am going to pull the usable optics out for eyepiece and finderscope projects and may use a few to learn how to repair, restore, and collimate binoculars.
Just wanted to pass this along. When it comes to buying from SGW, assume nothing, ask very direct, detailed questions, ask for more pictures so you can see what you're really getting, and make sure you keep the messages describing the condition. SGW does good things but it's also a racket so use caution. Lots of cool stuff and sometimes even good deals. It''s a great place to look for treasures, just be really careful.
