    ebay-uk. Seems good value - only thing - what is it going to end up at? I'd go for it under £400, could get over that row I'd have with the significant other at that price. But surely not going for that little?

    Early 1980s serial number, Churchman. If it is in good shape, it might be a chance to snag a bargain. But there could be bidders hiding in the weeds, too, who may not play their cards until the closing minutes.

    Snipers do indeed lurk (from past experience)
    I've lost many an auction at the last few seconds

    The top valve cap on the second valve looks like it may be cross-threaded.

    That is a :shock: good spot!

    I have little enough money - anyway - couldn't afford to buy it and fix it.

    11 minutes to go!! Get your sniper rifles ready! The action won't start until 10 seconds are left!

    **update**

    That wasn't so bad... it went from 480 pounds to 570. Snipers sleeping in GB this late at night I guess. That's about the top end of being the right price. 570 British Pounds is $877 US Dollars. It's a steal below $600, a good deal at $600-700. About average $700-900... and better be great between $900-1100. above that it is a charitable tax deduction.

    9 minutes to go and currently at £480 - It's going to be expensive.
