    Military or ex Military, based in southern Italy until returned to new dutystation in Washington DC?

    Anything is possible, but as long as you pay using PayPal for an Ebay purchase you're money is pretty well protected. Offer to call him, scams are much harder to maintain when you are talking to each other.

    Local pickup, followed by local PayPal payment, is also usually not a bad idea.

    Not really sure about the differences between a MK15.5 and a SM1600, But a buddy of mine doesn't like MS1600s but loves MK15.5s

    Let me state this clearly... B O G U S !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This type of listing with these exact picts have been popping up on fleaby for years. 100% complete bullshit, don't waste your time. Anyone that asks you to email them outside of an ebay account is a scammer, period.

    This is a fake. The unit is real, the description is fairly accurate - we did supply Steam Machines with the electronics for the units they built for Colkan.

    But this is pretty obviously a scam.

    Don't know about the pictures, but the description was copied from the therebreathersite.nl
    including the description of what serial number it has.

    Somebody bought it off Ebay last night, I just hope that they pay with PayPal and are willing to wait a long time before Ebay/PayPal refunds their money.

    yeah, but the nonexistant MK15.5/SM1600 on Ebay sold for $795. Yours certainly costs more, but on the other hand is something you can actually hold in your hands
