View Full Version : WTTF for Night Ops Gladius

16-12-06, 02:52 PM
I would like to trade for a Night Ops Gladius, any colour but tan, preferably new condition.

TRADED as below.

I've got the following to trade for it, I've marked each with a value I think is reasonable and if there's no success then I will, as a last resort put them up in a sperate thread on the Classifieds but for now I only want to trade. MODS - if this is in the wrong forum then I apologise :)

For postage I would expect to post Special Delivery on both sides.

Atwood Prybaby XL - brand new £27 Traded

Fallkniven U2 - it's lightly used, some light scratches on the blade, only been stropped, boxed £20

BRKT Fox River black micarta, used £33 Traded

Surefire E1e - has only sat on the bedside table so no real signs of use, boxed £27

Lowepro Orion Trekker II - as new, hasn't been out of the house, only used to store stuff in the house £25 Traded

Mont Blanc Meisterstuck Mozart Gold Trim Fountain Pen, fine nib - brand new, never used or even dipped. Suitable to be given as a gift. It's £175.00 in Websters Pens - £120 NOTE - it is a small pen, it's a smidge under 4.5" wth the cap on.


Strider PT - this has been modified, polished on the titanium side and textured on the G10 £50 Traded

If you have no joy with the trade can you give me first refusal on the Surefire and the Strider PT..

How much is one of these Gladius torches, and is it in trade for all of the above, or a choice of several to denote the similar price....:S

Well the cheapest I've seen them new on the bay of evil is 150, so I would expect to get as close to an agreed value with a selection of the items I've got for trade without having to put in any spondoolies.

If someone has a Gladius but only wants the prybaby or U2 etc then I wouldn't want to lay down the difference in cash but if someone wanted the pen plus the prybaby then I'd make up the difference.

Hope thats a bit clearer :)

the strider PT price is really a steal.
i would take it of your hands at this price, even i already broke.
but have to give preference to AndyP coz he comes first.

pm sent anyway.

EDIT, beaten! :D

Whilst I appreciate all the interest in buying some of the bits and it may come to doing that, I would still have to buy a gladius so it's more than preferable for me to hold out for a trade.

I've also received a number of helpul pointers to online suppliers however I want it before xmas and that would be unlikely from the US of A.

Having said that so far dibs have been noted on the following, in order of posting or pm:-

AndyP - Surefire and PT
Angus Og - BRKT Fox River

I'm always fascinated by much for few trades. I'm not back home until the 22nd though (Friday) postage on Saturday (23rd) would miss Christmas and probably arrive on the 27th. I could try to get Ropelady to get the torch and box and get her to post it but I couldn't guarantee she'd get it right before I got home ("They all look the same") and she's getting testier and testier as Christmas approaches and she's the one at home to organise everything :rolleyes:

Having laid all that out:
I've got a black, first generation Gladius with the clamshell box, very good condition indeed, for which I'd leave you a pen, the U2 and the E1E.

Whaddaya say?

Tempting eh? ;)

16-12-06, 05:35 PM
Ah, heres where my lack of research shows :) I didn't realise there was more than one generation, whats the difference?

The original ones had a ceramic finish that some have seen as inferior to HAIII, newer ones have HAIII. My S/N is in the hundreds I think. As far as I know this is the only difference.
