Ho to save some money for a M92
« on: September 12, 2020, 11:04:49 am »
Bonjour,
As a lot of you guys are happy with the Microcosm M92 Hit & Miss, I have decided to buy one, but it is a little bit expensvive for me.

I have discovered that it was commonly sold on auction in eBay by the two Jin's sellers with a very lo starting price.

I tried to bid several times, but so far without success, the auction ended either overnight or during my working days. So I stayed that day in front of an auction ending at 5 PM ... and I finally won! I save about 15% on the price of Jin's site.

I would receive it on November... I will share with you the next steps with videos of course  ;)

Looking forward to your videos, I’ve picked up a few good ebay buys from Jin in the past as well.

Yes, once the market gets saturated with a new model...the price usually drops to what I'm willing to pay.

Bonjour Bruce,
With the auction game, the sellers are doing funny, they are smart so it is not obvious to save money  ;)
