Default WTB: G-Meter dead or alive

Please offer what you got. If it's mechanical I'd like to get one with white face, not yellowed numbers.

Thanks

Default An Option

I wanted a g meter but the pricing on g meters put me off. I ended up installing this handy gadget: https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catal...?clickkey=9764 It does some useful clock tricks and if you buy a sensor it can do OAT, besides being a g meter. Extremely compact, uses mere milliamps and weighs pretty close to nothing.

Thanks all.

Mike, I just replied to your PN, might consider that G-Meter for a friend, but for my airplane I need a 2 1/4". Should have specified it earlier.

I thought about electronic unit, but would prefer a mechanical one. The GT-50 requires permanent current which I don't have right now at the instrument panel.

Default Falcon GM-510-2

I have a Falcon GM-510-2 that I am not using; it works but the 1G point wanders a bit.
