View Full Version : WTS Rare Elcan Specter DR SU-230A/PVS SOCOM version

I tried to sell this optic on ebay but all my buyers have been Chinese people trying to illegaly export it (story here (http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=1170876)), so I figured I'd try to sell it on a gun board where the buyer probably won't try to break ITAR laws by providing China with our restricted military gear.


I have a Generation 2 Elcan Specter DR SU-230A/PVS Flat Dark Earth 1x4 Scope. These are very rare and not available for the public to buy. The model on the side is listed as SU-230A/PVS 7.62 Articulated Telescope with an NSN of 1240-01-545-5813. It has an M4/M249 reticle. It is in new condition, it has been mounted on my rifle but not used. It does not include the original box but does include a scope bikini, lens cleaning wipes/brush and a black carrying case as well as the instruction booklet.

The winning bid on ebay was for $2340 shipped, so I'm seeing if I can get that here from someone who won't send it to China to be reverse engineered. Payment through paypal gift.

Bump for a fellow Elcan owner... I saw this color in a Gen 3 and they wanted over $3500 for it on Ebay. I have a Gen 3 and it surpasses any Acog out on the market today.

This is super rare and you don't see these pop up often.

Good luck with your sale.

Actually that ebay listing is what inspired me to sell mine (also my wife found out how much I paid for it and said no way) - but it made me think I could at least make what I paid for it (which is a considerable bit more more than what I'm selling it for, but a considerable amount less than $3500). Also, BUMP.
