    Hey everybody.
    Drew a mountain goat tag...and I'm looking for a Ziess, Swaro or Leica spotting scope, straight and preferably in the smaller objective...65mm or 62mm (Leica),
    I'd like ED glass but will do without due to price.
    I need the zoom eyepiece.

    Body condition isn't too important as long as the lenses are perfect. A few scratches or scuffs on the body are fine.

    Send me a pm.........& thanks!

    Go over to 24hourcampfire and look for "schrapnel". He has a few high quality scopes for sale. He will do you good.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I'm still looking for smaller objective and straight body though.

    That same dented Leica APO (link) is on ebay for $125 LESS--with buy it now....
    So much for 'brothers around the campfire!' :rolleyes:

    Well, found a new, old stock straight Leica 62 with zoom very reasonable on Ebay.
    Exactly what I was looking for.

    Figured this place would yield some results, but pretty much a waste.

    Thanks to those who opined...
