    Vortex diamondback scope 4-12x40

    Great wee scope, inch tube. Dials well I've shot shot out to 500 yds and back.
    Mounted on rifle at present in optilocks with inserts so should have no marks. Missing rubber off eyepiece but vortex will send a new one out. $380 shipped

    hey steve sounds like your in the know with vortex.
    I dropped in a scope for a warranty claim and the reckon there was no agent in nz to deal with it for a while.
    who do I talk with if this doesn't get sorted soon

    I think Bronco's have bypassed the NZ agent, and import direct.

    A couple of your ago when Vortex came on the scene the NZ agent was S R Marston in ChCh. For some reason it was a disaster, don't know what happened. Australasian agent is now Extra Vision in Queensland. Where Bronco, Taieri and Reloaders source theirs I wouldn't have the fogiest.

    Andy, definitely go straight to vortex. It will cost you shipping there. But they are really good to deal with in my experience

    Marston were struggling to get stock, so everyone was doing their own thing. You could get what you wanted online, Optic Planet etc, but Marston couldn't get stock from the manufacturers as the NZ agent.

    Cheers for clarifying that. Yep, went with OpticZone for mine. From what I can make out Marston is otherwise a long time NZ company offering good products.

    Yeah just bring them in yourself, theres still some great deals around in the US, the exchange rate obviously isnt as great as it was a while back, but still well worth doing. Diamondbacks from $179-$199US Vortex Diamondback 4-12x40 Matte Riflescopes Up To 26% OFF DBK-04-BDC | Coupon Available

    And CameralandNY had the Viper 6.5-20 at $299 the other day, great value at that price.
