    Has anyone bought a scope from Fishpond.co.nz?

    I am after a Bushnell Banner Model 713947 with 6 inch eye relief for my Baikal IZH 18 single shot .308 and fishpond.co.nz seems to be about the only one offering, it is supplies from USA which is now a minefield of export restrictions. Has anyone got any stories, good or bad please. If I do my dough the CFO probably wont let me buy a second one.

    Cheers Peter

    Fishpond generally don't have the items the "sell" in stock, they order from their supplier.

    Be prepared for a loooong wait.

    I would go elsewhere. Had a Leupy vx1 1-4 on my Baikal. The eye relief on that is 4.2 inches, worked fine with the Baikal one piece mount that reloaders sell. You might not need a 6" relief scope...

    I'd be careful with Fishpond. Tried buying a Bushnell gps(Hunt Track) from them , 2 weeks after the order get an email saying that it could not be shipped due to legal reasons( I have no idea why this would be). Took another 2 weeks to get a refund. Have never had a good purchasing experience with Fishpond. I only use them as a last resort.
