What's it worth?

Hello all,

I may have the opportunity to purchase a 16 year-old Swarovski-Optik Model AT 80, 80mm angled scope with 20-60 zoom lens. It is in very good to excellent condition.

Any thoughts on a fair price to pay?

Many thanks,

In the UK these sell for anything between 500 to 800 so $800 to $1,300

Offer them $500 then let them drive you up to a reluctant $1000 - no more though. It is a superb 'scope and - provided the lenses are in tip-top condition - you should have something that'll last you for a VERY long time ( Mine will have to do me until peg-out time )
