Bushnell Nature view

I am bidding on a pair of busnell nature view bins on ebay with a spec of 10 x 50. Searching busnells sigte and the internet i cant find any reference to bushnell ever having made a 10 x 50 in the nature view range. The bins are advertised as brand new. The link is here
Can anyone advise please?

send the seller e mail and have them read the numbers off the bin
if they cannot be read anymore, then do not buy it
or at least you will know if he even has a pair of any sort

Hello Keith,
I searched my quite extensive collection of catalogues for a Natureview 10x50, but all that could be found was a Spotting Scope (Natureview 10x50) in a Porro design. The model number is 78-1050 and it is in a 2003 catalogue. In the picture it looks like half a porro binocular! Perhaps the one you are looking at is a 10x42 and the seller made a mistake? Or possibly Bushnell did make one that we cannot locate any info on?
Good luck, John

I think they are actually 10x42s not 10x50s.

As far as I'm aware they only do 10x42s in this range.

I have the 10x42s in the same bins and have been impressed with them.

If you can get them at around that price then you really have got a bargain.

Good luck!!
