That pistol has sold. I bought mine from Simpson's about a year ago for a similar price, was very happy with it.

Hi 
I have one I planned to sell last year.  After taking the photos and putting the album together, I had second thoughts about letting it go.
Here's a link:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/gutstring/albums/72157712601597672/with/49360555463/

I've had it for about 20 yrs.  I put a box (maybe two?) of ammo through it, then put it in the safe.  I took it out last year and put another 30 rounds through it.  Other than that, all I've done is dry fire it at home a bit.
It comes with two sets of grips, the LH Nill target grips and the ambidextrous Nill Master grips. (Notice that the inside of the grips have no powder residue, oil, etc. and are unworked.) 
It comes with everything as if bought new: box, case, tools, documents, test target, and spare parts.  It's all mint condition.

I sold an earlier Hammerli 208 back in Dec. 2016 here on this forum.  That one was dead mint.
Here's the link to that old sale (the old album link is now deleted, but I have those photos saved):

https://www.bullseyeforum.net/t6629-f-s-hammerli-208-mint-in-box-sc-spf#53010

Please have a look at the album for the 208s.  If you know these pistols, you'll see that I've got lots of detailed pictures showing the details that a discerning eye would look for.
It is in very nice condition!

Feel free to contact me if this might be to your liking.

Thanks,
Jim

Subtle but important to some difference between 208 and 208s. On a 208s you have an additional trigger adjustment option.

Also, and possibly the most important difference, the Hammerli 208s has a 2 stage trigger. The Knapp or Larry's scope mount fits the 208s. The reason the 208s demands a higher price.

hello, the Larry or Knapp Mount fits the 208 and the 208s same frame. I have a Larry mount on my 208. and yes the 208 has a single stage trigger, but both triggers (single and Two stage)  are light years ahead of most other triggers on other pistols right out of the box. either trigger works well for most shooters.

After getting used to the 2 stage trigger, I found that it was a big factor in my breaking 880 outdoors. I wasn't sure that the Knapp mount would fit the 208 American, but I'll take your word on it.

A two stage trigger is also not necessarily exclusive to the S models either. I have handled 2-3 different 208/215's that had two stage triggers.

You are correct. Larry Carter actually used to shoot a Hammerli 215 with a 2 stage trigger. The thing is that all 208s's have the two stage triggers and fore and aft adjustments.

My 208s is sold to Ctrap.
Thanks to all the other inquiries, though. Nice to see that a quality Hämmerli 208s has maintained long term demand!

Keep in mind with the older 208 samples offered by Simpsons, that many of these were club guns in Europe.
Frequently, these have been shot 100 rounds or more a week, every week, for decades.
They go back and forth from the locker to the firing line, so the round count may not be readily apparent from the outside.
The initial cost savings quickly disappear if/when it gets sent to a gunsmith for a tuneup or check-up and you need new hammer, sear, extractor, etc. plus labor and shipping....
