    Cheap Night force, Schmidt & Bender, Swarovski and other top end optics.

    Cheap Night force, Schmidt & Bender, Swarovski and other top end optics.


    While looking at these forums I have noticed that there are a lot of hunters in New Zealand who are getting their relatives to buy them optics in Australia. This is because there is a noticeable difference in price between how much you pay for the scope in NZ compared to AUS. You also need to apply for a permit which can be tricky to do from overseas.

    I currently sell scopes over Ebay and am happy to apply for a permit for you (or you can apply for it yourself), shop for the scope (or you could pay for it yourself) and hold it at a secure sight until the permit has cleared. Once the permit has cleared I would send your goods to you for a small fee.

    Below is an example of based on the current NZD to AUD conversion rate plus fees.

    Brand new in box Night force nxs compact 2.5-10x42mm Zero stop MOAR .250 MOA illuminated for NZD $2666 plus post to NZ my fee is included in this price.

    Feel free to send me a message I am more then happy to have a chat if this interests you. You can also check out my ebay page which has a 100% feedback rating.

    I was thinking more along the lines as new scopes sold as "second hand" ( no gst or duty applies )

    Still too bl##dy dear for a pensioner.
    Have to play in the 'NZD70-NZD200' playpen, to get what I can afford for LR range shooting.

    The nightforce 2.5-10 price that is quoted above, you would still have to pay gst on top of Im assuming. Personally Id hazard a guess you would get a better deal going through magnum sports themselves.......
