    Wanted: Vortex Diamondback 4-12x40

    Anyone got one in good condition you want to offload?

    Or maybe similar with magnification up to 15-16x, must be 1" tube and have covered or uncovered turrets that are marked and easily dialable.

    I already have 3 of the diamondback 4-12 with BDC. Got a Viper HS-T 4-16 as well.

    Love them all. Great scopes for the $. Great bright optics and all dial repeatably.

    Was keen to grab another DB 4-12, want 1" tube. Is 12x the highest mag they do in anything less than the vipers?

    I have the 4-12x40 and the 3.5-10x50 diamondback. I think the 3.5-10 is sharper of the two. If you already have the 4-12, I would consider the 3.5-10 especially in a bigger cal. Cross hairs are heavier too, great for bush pig setup.

    Can we import via the Aussie distributor? What's the likely best deal? I've only gone retail or s/h previously. Hope I'm not hijacking here, figured it part of this theme

    broncos or reloaders is best bet price wise. Mate runs a diamondback 4-12 BDC on his 7mm08. Loves it.

    I came within a mm of buying one of these from Reloaders 2 weeks.ago Very very nice scope. More expensive than the std DB though. Ended up going Sightron though as the DB HP would only focus down to 50 yards and I wanted something to go on a new 22 rf and need 25 yds out beyond 100 yds. Reloaders price around the same as getting it from OpticZone.

    looked at reloaders today and they had the diamonback 3.5-10x50 for $429 or the 3-9x40 diamondback with the BDC reticle for $389. Ridiculous considering the DB is up there with the vx2 and you could be paying up to $800 for one of those
