    What did you order?
    Seem to recall someone posting Mk4's are not available ex US anymore.

    Probably a distribution deal where they are not allowed to ship outside of US by Leupold.

    Yes as per Stug. Been in place for ages but a lot of them don't abide. Maybe Leupold is now yelling a bit louder. Try Jon @ Opticzone - they generally have the best prices at anyrate.

    Well whilst they haven't shipped, they still took my money. Hoping for a quick refund.

    I've had to jump hoops before with Optics Planet Re: trying to use a freight forwarder (youcrap) and ITAR.
    Phoning them was extremely beneficial and cleared things up immediately, had to wear their freight though in the end.
    Wasn't a leupold product however.

    He told me the VX6 (older model); as its now called, can be shipped to NZ no worries.
    MK4 no can do and he was definitely a bit cagey about other Leupold products for some reason including the new VX6.
