I've seen quite a few 770x and 79xx scopes come through my local
scraper in the last few years and haven't sold. Right now, the gold
value in these beasts are worth more than what people are willing to
pay and almost all are hitting the scrap bin. As a house warmer I keep
a 7944 around - a two beam unit that will display 8 inputs, but use a
Tek 2465B when I need the speed.
