    Sig Sauer Kilo 3000 BDX Binos

    As the title says, I want to buy a set of the Kilo 3000 BDX Binos.
    What have people got available?

    Only catch, these will be going on my Credit Card, so Paypal would be fantastic!

    Just got some sig binos in the shop the other day. Not sure on model but they're 10x42.
    I think they retail for 1100ish. All I did was have a quick play, price tag them and put in a cabinet.

    I am a strict Swaro guy but have to admit they were some of the best binos I have looked thru even tho only up and down the street. I dont know much about them to be fair but for optical quality I would happily reccomend them.

    Would love a set of Swaros, but will be a couple of years away from that. But these should hold me over in the mean time! Wish they were only $1100! But the Kilo 3000 appear to be $2399 most places (but out of stock) and $2649 from H&F (in stock).

    Think they were only introduced early 2019, I want them as an RF Bino, but they have the added benefit of pairing with the BDX scopes, so when I take the wife hunting and she asks where she should aim, I can range it and tell her, just put the red dot in the boiler room! Mega confidence booster!

    I will be in the shop tomorrow and I will get the boss to talk to the agent about a pair.
    I am waiting on a gun off them that was due in the country before today along with a shipment of other stuff.
    They may have ordered a few sets along with the shipment.
    Just looked them up online. If the glass is as good as the others I have looked thru I might grab a pair myself as a backup set.
    My swaros are away getting minor repairs back at the factory and I dont have the backup set sent to me yet that I am supposed to be using while they're away.

    Be a while then? They will have to remove the 12" custom spacer between the barrels that allowed you to use them

    Even the Vortex Fury HD5000 may be an option, seen quite a few side by side reviews where they kill the geovids on glass quality and ranging ability only losing out by having a slightly longer response time

    +1 for Giles, if no luck I'm sure Ken at 55six is bringing in alot of sig stuff also. Both guys are awesome to deal with and a wealth of knowledge as I'm sure you know
