As the Captain says,, since they recently stopped manufacturing the mk 3 finders  people have keyed onto this and are selling them for a fortune.  If you  see any reasonable mk 1 finders you can get them serviced/calibrated for around £25 so you could factor that into your costing.  I could pass you on the details of the guy who did a superb job mine if you go down the Mk1 route.

Hang on a minute I know I brought mine at a great price and the guy is a gent, I was commenting on the prices that other people are asking for them, I have no complaints just expressing an observation. And mate the guy you felt with is a wrong un if he has done that to you, your more than welcome to borrow mine if needed
