Like to trade Swarovski ATS80 20-60x HD for Kowa 883 or 773, cash on your end for the 773. Would like the TE11 wide eye piece.

ATS80 has a custom fit soft case and the proper phoneskope adapter. This just came to me and the optics are great, I won't get used to the focus mechanism compared to what I have learned.

Would sell for $2300 $2000 plus shipping and fees

Why are you downgrading mate?

I wouldn’t consider it a downgrade. I had the 773 and I now have an ATX. 773 is just as good optically. It also has the dual focus knobs so its easier to get a better image. ATX is great because its compact and lens flexible but if I was only going to have one scope that 773 is hard to beat.

Just like my first posts says. When you decide to spend a lot of money, little ittybitty things matter. I have had this scope side by side with both Kowas now, and there isn'n't really a bit of difference. Since my instint now is to reach for the focus in the location of my Opticron, and similarly the Kowa, I am not used to the Swarovski, I believe I do not want for OPTICS but for UX.

I forgot, I have a phone skope adapter and a fitted soft case for it.

Boy! Getting this is cheap! Someone should grab this bargain. Could you put a photo up of the case?

If I didn't already have one I would be jumping on this, some would say the best glass out there for going for a great price.

I’ll vouch for Sndmn11...got to meet up with him in Colorado and glass mule deer together...view was was indistinguishable between this spotter and my 883 out to 1.5 miles. You can trust this guy with a friends and family payment over PayPal..
