EDIT 12/11/02: Eotech 552 SOLD AND SHIPPED. Thanks Jm03. Hope you like it!
For the background into why I'm selling this, please see [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=18&t=145054&page=1[/url].
Basically, after months worth of research I've found that the Eotech 552 doesn't work with my eyes.
At any rate, last Thursday (12/5/02) I ordered an Eotech 552 from Donnie at SableCo. It was the last one he had in stock, though he was expecting another shipment soon. I received it Monday (12/9/02) and had it mounted on my milspec flattop AR15 rifle (using optional thumbscrew) for a total of about 3 hours. The rifle sat on my couch behind my computer where I sat frustrated trying to figure out why the 552 didn't work for me (see above thread). As it turns out, it doesn't have anything to do with the 552, it's just not "compatible" with my eyes. So, I'm selling it.
The condition is LNIB. Basically, I just took it for a really expensive 3 hour test drive where I didn't even leave the dealership parking lot. [:)] I noticed two small marks on the leading edge of the hood (at least one of which I noticed as I took it from the box) and three small marks on the underside where it mounts to a flattop (appears to be normal mounting wear, IMHO). Literally, this was taken from the box, mounted, shouldered a few times during the course of the night, taken off and put back in the box. It's probably been on a grand total of 4 hours.
Here's what you get:
- Copy of my receipt from SableCo indicating a purchase date of 12/5/02 for $360;
- Box for 552 sight including plastic interior;
- Factory accessories including 2 AA batteries, allen wrench, and optional thumbscrew;
- Factory manual; and
- Eotech 552 dot sight with 2D (1 MOA dot with 64 MOA ring) reticle -- this is the milspec model with NV button.
I pay priority mail shipping to your address.
Eotech 552 will be considered sold pending funds to the first person who emails me and indicates they will send funds (EDITED to add that I must confirm acceptance as well). Unit ships when money is received. Sale is final.
I prefer receiving a money order in the mail, but am not objectionable to payment by PayPal as long as I can determine that there will be no fees or surcharges (if so, buyer pays PayPal surcharges). I'll look into the PayPal fees, otherwise maybe someone with more PayPal experience can advises me as to the costs (I have a personal account, I believe?).
$350 including priority shipping.
I'll try to get pictures up later tonight.
EDIT #2 to add pics:
EDIT #3 (12/11/02) -- I just remembered that I do have a digital photo (though my camera is not the highest quality) of the reticle taking on a dark background. If there's any doubt that the Eotech here is working properly, tonight I can email or post here the photo. The reticle is crystal clear in the photo, and even to my eye under the right light conditions.
