Just bought this off the EE and have two questions for those more education than I

I didn't see this in the sellers pictures so I'm wondering if this should be a USPS claim or what...

Also should I be concerned with the eye piece assembly being cracked?

Eye piece crack



Thanks,

The metal pin is the focus stop. It's supposed to be there. There is a hex screw holding it in place.

Can't see the crack in your pics, but if it is significant and compromises the function and not just cosmetic, I would be concerned. If not just cosmetic, and it wasn't disclosed by the seller, and if it was not visible in the pictures, you have a valid reason to complain.

Figured the focus stop part out about 3 seconds after posting that

Here is a better picture of the focus ring thing? around the eye piece it's big enough for me to fit a micro sd card into it






Also I contacted the seller telling him I was making the thread didn't want there to be any talk of me doing something without him knowing.

That won't affect functionality and doesn't look like something that can get worse. I personally wouldn't worry about it if you got a good deal. Used equipment is gonna have flaws. The only way I would feel like the seller was wrong is if they described it as something along the lines of perfect or like new. Is it something that shoulda been specifically disclosed? Yeah probably, if they knew about it. Are they an asshole for not specifically disclosing it? If it wasn't represented as close to perfect, I don't think so.

It really is just a minor cosmetic issue, and in line with what I would typically expect and be ok with if getting a good deal in something used.

Yea I dunno I guess I'll talk to the seller I don't really feel like it was a decent deal I just wanted to give a monocular a shot since I'm running sentinels as my primary.

That's mine that I just sold. Probably should have made that clear in my ad. Adam at ab advised its a non-issue. I Have offered a full refund if he wishes to return. Don't want anyone to feel like they got screwed.
