    Eurooptic

    I've only ever used Opticzone or Opticsplanet for scopes before.
    Looking at an Elcan SpecterOS but Opticzone don't sell them. Pity, as they have always had great service.

    The scope is not an ITAR item, but may have to do some end user paperwork.

    What are people's thoughts on Eurooptic as opposed to Opticsplanet?

    Have used both. More personal service from europtic. Agree with earlier comment best to email them first. Had problems with optics planet around 50% of the time.

    @dogmatix, I've brought four Elcans off EuroOptics in PA, they are awesome to deal with.
    No problems importing one.
    ps. Two of them were for friends, not all mine. LOL.

    Yes, it was probably me that told you, they’d rather not put certain things in writing, key word search, big brother etc.....

    But very accommodating and as helpful as they can be over the phone.

    Yeah, I just wasn't putting it in writing

    They were quick and easy to buy from.

    Ive used scopelist.com who I believe is the same company as Eurooptic. (Or at least they are connected in some way) You make an offer on the scope and they will make a counter offer with shipping normally at the pretty good deal. Ive brought a G7 rangefinder and strikeeagle cheap than I could find from any other US retailer. They stock a couple brands they wont ship overseas though due to contracts etc.

    Eurooptics sells them. I tried to by an ACOG through them and they said the couldn't export, but the could sell me the Elcan OS; he even offered a discount as an incentive.
