FS: Kowa TSN-822's with 32x Wide Angle & 21x Wide Angle eyepieces

For Sale:

Two (2) Kowa TSN-822 Spotting Scopes. They are currently mounted on a bracket to allow binocular viewing (BIG EYES Style). Each of the scopes comes with a 32x Wide Angle Eyepiece and a 21x Wide Angle Eyepiece.
The scopes are extremely clear and have no issues what so ever! (See pictures).

I will sell as a set for $1900.00 (with bracket & eyepieces) or individually for $975.00 each (plus actual shipping/insurance). If you are local, I will throw in a custom oak dovetailed box (it is way too heavy to ship, unless you are willing to pay shipping for it).

The reason for selling is just to build something else.

I am also willing to partial trade for a Nightforce 12-42 Benchrest scope or a custom rifle action/stock/trigger, etc Let me know what you have.

Please PM any questions.
Thanks!

Are the scopes aligned to eachother?

How heavy is this unit?

They are aligned (colomated) to each other just like binoculars. We use them for long range competition spotting and long range hunting.

I am not sure what they weigh (7-9 lbs maybe? Kowa rates the scopes at 3.17lbs + eyepieces & bracket). The scopes are made from carbon fiber shells and are extremely durable and light for their size.
From Kowa:

Kowa enjoys a spectacular reputation of enduring quality internationally, where there are large numbers of nature enthusiasts.
Kowa's world class flagship model, the TSN-822 M, was created using advanced optical technology and the best materials known. The 82mm objective lens gathers gobs of light, ensuring a bright field of view. With a combination of such sharpness, power and exit pupil, this is a tool for observation from dawn to dusk.
It is not a matter easily settled until you experience the differences for yourself, but choosing between straight and angled viewing versions of spotting scopes depends heavily on your useage. Scopes with straight viewing are easier for locating the subject, but more difficult to share the view for those of varying heights. They're usually just a bit shorter, lighter and less expensive as well. Scopes with angled viewing are a bit more cumbersome to locate your subject with, but are much easier to share amongst users of varied heights. Angled scopes are advantageous for observing things above you, while if you'll be at a high location you'll prefer a straight scope.

Main lens composed from environmentally friendly, lead-free "eco-glass"
Unique flat & wide porro prism design (alternative designs curl and bulk upward) eases handling and improves balance
Full multicoatings on all lenses and prisms
360 rotating base with click stops allows usage from many angles-even overhead
Quick-aiming finder on the scope's right aids in object locating
Sliding sun shade shields unnecessary light and raindrops while providing protection for the front element (which has an 86mm filter thread)
Sealing and O-ring purging which lets you scoff at conditions
Adaptable to 35 mm SLR cameras, digital cameras, and video cameras with optional photo adapter
Metal alloy & carbon fiber rubber-armored construction
Equipped with both 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 tripod threads
Objective Lens Diameter 82mm
Minimum Focus Distance 19.7' (6.0 m)
Weatherproofing Waterproof & fogproof
Dimensions 15.1" (383mm)
Weight 3.17 lb (1440 g)

This would be an amazing setup! I have been seriously considering going to a setup like this and selling my Kowa TSN 884 Prominar to do so. Interested in a trade?

I am not opposed to trades, I am not really looking for another spotting scope though. And, considering that the Prominars are $2200 to $2400, I wasn't considering throwing any money into the deal.
I am looking for a 12-42 Nightforce Benchrest scope, 10-50 Sightron scope, or custom rifle actions, though.
