d-bg5 Pentax battery grip

Hi!

I'm looking for a Pentax D-BG5 battery grip to couple with my newly acquired K-3. I'd like the grip to come with at least one battery. I don't need the original box if you don't have it, but would like all functions to work as they should. Cosmetic isn't important, as long as the WR seals are fine.
If you have such grip and you are willing to part with it, make me an offer . For now, I'd prefer a seller from Canada, but will entertain US offer as well. I'm looking in Canada mostly to cut on shipping cost and possible on paypal fees as I would have to option to pay with e-transfert.


Thank you all.

I saw it, thank you. Still looking though as I would prefer a deal within Canada. I will entertain US offers, but I'll try to find one this side of the border first. I will modify the listing to reflect that.

Unless your parcel encounters a Customs' Agent who's having a bad day, under 100.00 items still pass through without encountering GST+PST+Service Charge - most of the time.

Anything over 20$ is subject to be taxed, which is around 15%, and shipping is also about 10$ more expansive. I have purchase dozens of items from the US and abroad, I know what to expect indeed. Using USPS, you mostly get lucky, but sometimes you get taxed, and that's just the way it is.

Thank you for chiming in.

It's like a roulette, I've had items priced 300.00 to 500.00 come through without being taxed while my most recent purchase from Japan for 125.00 got dinged. Extra charge in international shipping, that's expected - our domestic shipping charge isn't all that cheap either.
