Default Temp Guns

Just wanted to let others know about a deal I found on Raytek temp guns.
They are brand new and the MT6 sells for 49.99 shipped the MT4 sells for 38.99 shipped this is just a small part of what they sell.
If you are looking for a temp gun this is a great place to start.
Please let me know what you think.

Default Temp Guns

These are very popular guns and from what I read are actually made by Fluke.
I ordered the MT4 which has an 8:1 ratio not the 1:1 of the cheaper guns.
Even some of the guns at this same price are 1:1 (Odonell 39.99 +ship) and run on watch batteries.
This unit uses a 9V battery available anywhere and this units retail is 89.99 so yes I think it is a good gun.

I have both the Raytek and Odonnel temp guns and both are very good. I use them to check each other and they are within 2F degrees of each other. I spent $90 for my Raytek when it first came out back in 2000/2001 and have been rolling with it ever since (still works like a charm). The Odonnel is my backup to the Raytek (had a battery crap out on me with the Raytek and did not have another 9v replacement battery). You can't go wrong with either and they are way cheaper than the Exergen gun, which has to be recalibrated ever so often to give you proper temp readings.

Just decided today to sell the thing! Think I should ask more? LOL
