    Have you had a good look through an ER5 Timmay?

    The only reason I ask is that I looked at buying one of these as I have some other Leica optics (Ultravid binos) which are fantastic, but I was very disappointed in how heavy the reticle was and ended up buying a Zeiss scope instead.

    Thanks @LOC, I have asked them for a price. @Sauer, good heads up, it's very easy to find good reticle subtensions for Zeiss, Leupold, Minox etc etc but I cant for the life of me find that info for Leica? No one will have these scopes on the shelf so if it comes to the crunch I will just go with a Kahles 2-7x36 as it will be a similar price and quality (and easily found subtensions)

    Pretty sure shooters world in Gore deal in Leica scopes, been a couple years since I was past that way but remember them having quite a few on display at the time.

    I found one place that would actually have a conversation with me about getting one in / buying one and that was because they had 4 or 5 coming (specific model and ret) but where hopeless around ETA, Each time we spoke they wanted me to place an order but... due 2 weeks... Due in 4 now... Due in 3 months... I bought a swaro instead.

    Optics Trade and others also showing discontinued
    They only showing one ER5 option now - very odd.
