Horn with bad intonation?

I am thinking of purchasing a horn (french horn) but a previous owner said that it had bad intonation. Is that fixable?
Lets say in theory its not a french horn, but is a Viennese horn. Anything on that one?

If it is from a major maker there shouldn't be a problem, as everyone else is saying, "Its the player". I know you wouldn't buy the instrument without sitting down with a tuner first, don't have the owner there when you do that. Offer them a "low ball" amount on the instrument because it doesn't play in tune, you might get it cheap.

I had a school complaining about a horn that they couldn't play in tune. It really played in the cracks. The problem was it was a Sansonne brand, they have the Bb slides on the top and they had put all the F crooks on top... YIKES. Also, had a Yamaha in from a school that just wouldn't even play a scale. Turns out the repairman had switched the bumper/string posts between the #3 and the # 2 valves SO, with the keys open the #2 and 3 were in use.. so this was a horn in D with all kinds of messed up fingerings.

When you say "Viennese" do you mean a single F pumper horn? You know, a Vienna Horn with the Vienna Valves? I have played one of those and the tuning was fine, the upper range was a little different because I was use to a standard double. Now, if it is from some tiny maker in Europe it could have built in problems, I have run across a few stinkers. Get your tuner and find out.
