I'm listing it all here in one post so please read carefully. I will be changing out both of my current systems and consolidating somewhat. I will be making the change-over at the end of the series I am currently working on so I wanted to start the selling process now.
Here goes:

MK-V 1.5 Inch V2 Hybrid Rig Package Includes:
*MK-V Two Stage 1.5 inch carbon fiber post (new style) and main centerpost cable.
*PRO Donkey Box II Topstage.
*XCS Camera Dovetail Plates (2). New/Unused.
*MK-V V2 PRO style under Topstage upper J-Box(AR Ready). Unused/As New.
*PRO Gimbal and Grip.
*MK-V V2 Monitor Bracket (dual Mount).
*Tiffen 700 Nit LCD Monitor.
*Transvideo Frameline Generator(three framelines and crosshair with rig cable).
*MK-V V2 lower electronics D-Box(AR Ready). Unused/ As New.
*MK-V Dual sliding Battery Rack.
*MK-V single PAG Battery plates (2).
*MK-V Dual PAG Battery Plates (2).

Steadicam Arm(this arm will be sold either with this rig package or the Nexus/AR package)
*PRO II Compression Spring Arm in excellent shape w/complete set of (8) spring canisters.
*(4) Armposts (6 inch and 12 inch lengths. two of each.) w/ armpost rings/clamps.
*Angled D-Bracket for LowMode work.
*Arm Bag.
*Arm Weather Covers.
*Spring Adjustment Wrench/tools.

Vest/Harness
*Walter Klassen Traditional Deluxe Harness(pivoting Arm style) with upgraded dual ratcheting front and new socket block.
**Note** The harness is a very personal item and should fit well to the operator. This item does not have to be purchased with the package. I am willing to sell it separately. I am almost 6?1? tall and weigh about 185. The vest has adjustment room for more or less on the ends and could be repadded by Walter Klassen for other body dimensions as well.

Lens Control:
*3 Channel Lens control system(unused/backup system) w/ lens scale rings, brackets, cables, spare parts, etc.
*M1 motor(a backup motor that sits unused) w/ motor cable, bracket and rods and complete set of lens gears.
*Pelican Case for all Lens control gear, motor, and accessories.
*Foul Weather Handheld Cover(new/unused) for Lens Control Handset.

Rig Power:
*(6) PAG L95 Batteries.
*(3) PAG Chargers(One quad, One dual and one dual compact)

Additional Accessories:
*Walter Klassen Vehicle Mount with speedrail attachment.
*Jerry Hill Gorelock/Docking bracket w/ (2) docking rings.
*On Set Steadicam Senior Cart/ Magliner w/ bottom shelf, top shelf, Steadicam Riser and Vest hanger.
*Lots of spare bits, misc. cables, wrenches/tools, spare parts, etc.


Rig #2 is a complete and perfect four stage MK-V Nexus Rig used for AR work only.
*Betz Topstage and camera dovetail plates(2).
*MK-V V2 Upper J-Box(AR Ready).
*MK-V V2 2 inch four stage centerpost and cable.
*MK-V V2 2 inch Gimbal.
*XCS dual rod telescoping monitor mount (New/Unused).
*MK-V V2 Lower D-Box(AR Ready).
*MK-V Nexus Battery Rack with two dual V-Lock(Ready for Tiffen Powercube batteries. Batteries not included with this rig).
**Note** No monitor included unless you purchase the AR package along with this rig to give you a complete AR/Nexus Rig which I would suggest as you need the Nexus rig (or something very similar) to use and power the AR. See AR package list for details.

MK-V V2 AR Package.
*AR V2 Camera Cage/Rings with Camera Side to Side Assembly and spare belts.
*Two Camera Dovetail plates (Arri/Video/HD Camera plate and Panavision plate).
*AR Camera Plate Lens Motor Rod.
*AR V2 Upper J-Box and mounting bracket.
*AR V2 Lower Processor Box and rod bracket.
*AR V2 Sensor box and bracket.
*AR V2 rotating monitor mount.
*6 inch LCD monitor and power/video cable.
*Complete set of AR cables(cage motor cables, J-Box cables, Sensor box cable, monitor mount cable, camera power extension, Monitor jumper cables, etc).
*2nd Complete set of AR cables.
*Camera cable routing brackets and rods.
*2nd/Spare Side to Side Assembly.
*Spare Brackets, rods, etc.
*See through bags for cables and brackets.
*Pelican Case for all.
*AR Set-Up DVD.

There you have it. I can detail things even further for those who are serious about purchasing as there is more to it all but difficult to list here. All gear is in pristine condition with many parts being brand new or unused as I had multiples of much of it. I take excellent care of all my gear so this is a really great opportunity for someone. Most of the pictures I have of the gear are too large of files to post here so it is better if I can email photos to those who are truly serious about buying and not just window shopping and with some things, I need to take some photos anyway. Seeing the gear in person and in action can be arranged for the potential buyer with a visit to Paramount Studios in California where I am currently working if you are local or wish to travel. I have not finalized pricing to put on the forum as there is some shifting of a few items that can be done so I will furnish prices to those who email as well.

This is professional level gear that can be worked with right away. Needs no tinkering, upgrades, fixes, etc. I use these rigs, arm, harness and accessories each and every day (aside from the new/unused/backup gear I am putting in) on theatrical features, Television Series, MOV, Commercials, Corporate, all of it. Look me up on IMDB or steadicam-ops.com to back up what I'm saying. Don't email me through the forum as I don't check it all the time. Use my email address below for questions, details, photos and prices. Thanks.

Sincerely,

Grayson Grant Austin

Okay, finally got around to going through and making a price list and taking some photos so here it is...

* 1.5 inch MK-V V2 Hybrid Rig package with all accessories (except PRO arm and WK Harness): $33,000 US.

This price includes the complete rig listed and all things with it, the battery and chargers package, lens control and motor package, steadicam cart and docking bracket, WK Vehicle mount, cables for everything, lots of other parts, spares, etc. I separated the prices for these items as a harness is very personal to each operator and should fit well so this I can sell separate and 1st chance at the arm will be to those who want to buy a sled as well, either the 1.5 inch rig or the four stage 2 inch Nexus rig.


* 2 inch four stage Nexus Rig (AR ready and only used for AR): $20,000 US (Sled only).

No monitor unless purchased with the AR which will give you an LCD monitor to use for both regular and AR operating. See package lists for all details.

*AR System: $48,000 US (includes monitor and all cables as well as a 2nd full unused set of cables as well as a 2nd side to side assembly and lots of other spare parts).

*PRO Arm package: $18,000 US (includes all items listed with the Arm).

*Walter Klassen back mounted traditional deluxe harness: $6000 US (includes 2nd complete carbon fiber arm. See list for details).
