WOW, that's a good find!

Fwiw, if anyone near Ottawa ever wants a much inferior 500mm Paragon telephoto, I am trying to find a new home for mine, don't use it. Free to good home, I wouldn't say no to you buying me a beer.

Unfortunately it's been modified to another mount which may not be reversible.

i caught that as well. If it was fairly priced to reflect the damage ($500?) I might buy it and swap the mount tube from my 500/4.5 back and forth.

Hi there!

I still have one available in the PF Marketplace for less money and it even has a nice camo "suit"!

No connection with seller, just noting the considerable price advantage here in the Marketplace.
And..... has a Pentax mount!

Ha, the Ottawa used/kijiji scene is pretty overpriced.

That's not really a very good price, you can def find these for about half of that. Don't forget that you will also need an equally heavy tripod plus a gimbal mount (or at least a large video head)!

Here's mine in the field in the Everglades:
