I am new to the forum but I thought this would be the best place to ask my question. I have a Zeiss Diavari 3x9x36 with z-plex reticle made in West Germany. It is in excellent shape having never been mounted. It has sat in the safe to long and I have decided to sell it. What is a fair price for this scope?

Gosh, that's a tough one.  Does the scope actually say "Made in WEST Germany"?  If so, your scope is over 10 years old and pricing one (even though it has never been used or mounted) will be difficult.

 

Bottom line is that it's worth what somebody will pay for it.  My advice is to put it on Ebay with a reserve you can live with and let the market decide what it's worth...

The scope does actually say West Germany. I have been watching ebay and that seems to be the best way to find a ballpark figure.

Is this scope a FFP and is it matte?

$100, cash money, right now, I'll even pay shipping and throw in an extra $25 for a quick send.

 

Wish I could offer more assistance, but I know precious little, namely:

1.  There is a God.

2.  I ain't Him.

3.  Women have breasts.

 

Beyond that, I don't know.  Throw it up on Ebay with lots of pictures and ask what you want and see what happens.  Worst resukt: no one buys it, lower the reserve, let free market economics decide.  Another option would be send in a trade-in form to Samplelist and see what thy offer for it.

 

there is a non-zero value associated with that scope.  ASfter that, my offer is $100.  $125 if you mail it quick!

Watch out buying on ebay. I bought a brand new Zeiss off of ebay and four days later the police came to see me and told me the scope I bought was a stolen product. I just got my refund back.

Well I threw it up for $750.00 shipped after seeing this one sell on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=23009 7135757&ssPageName=ADME:L:DBS:US:14

 

If nothing else I will put it up on Ebay and see what happens.
