Sigma 1.4x TC - PARTS ONLY --- Non Working

$55 USD OBO

Item Description
Older model Sigma 1.4x APO EX (Non-DG) Teleconverter for Pentax K Mount as is, non working.

The locking pin was damaged,jammed and the release lever has a minor crack.
Lenses will not lock in place and cannot communicate with camera.

CRIS says this is an older TC version and as such parts for the newer TC's will not fit.

I am not a tinkerer, so it's nothing but a paperweight to me.

Included is TC only, no body or rear cap.

Will consider shipping outside US for price + actual shipping charge

UPDATE:

yesterday with a light and judicious use of tools, I was able to "slightly" free the locking pin. with a little bit of effort, I can now "pop" the pin about half its normal travel using the lever. there's no "spring action", it is either down or up.

I tested it yesterday with my Sigma 100-300 and it did lock with the lens and I did get lens information to the camera. the lens did focus.

I personally would not trust my camera to this TC if it were mounted on a tripod, though I guess technically the pin would have to fail AND the camera unscrew

at $55 plus shipping (about $10 in US) I think this is a very reasonable price for a "sort of" working older sigma TC. It is APO and EX, just not DG.

and yes there is a slight crack in the lever as well, though i'd think with careful treatment it shouldn't get worse.

i'm still selling this as NON-Working, but if you have a lighter set-up and hand hold, here's a chance for a really good bargain (about 50% off)
