    Scope Import, where from?

    I want to get a sightron 6-24x50 and i have been looking at various places.

    The best deal i can find is at the opticzone as they have a 9% discount at the moment however the shipping and surcharge is very high!

    Anyway to get around high shipping?

    Anyone want to order a scope so we can save on shipping?

    Also want to get some dies from sinclairs or who ever so if someone wants to do a order from brownells/sinclairs etc i would be keen

    Cheers

    You shop overseas, we ship2u will consolidate for you, so you can get all your US stuff sent to them in LA by cheapest means offered and they will gather it all together and ship back to NZ. Very reasonable. Typically costs me US $20 to get a single item like a scope sent back here. They charge a few extra $ for consolidation service.

    The Rifle Scopes Store - Improve Your Shooting Today! charged me $US49 for up to three scopes. Arrived within 10 days. Paid via paypal so no extra charges.

    If you're looking at the sightron then you might be better off getting it through DED. I don't think there is too much of a difference now.

    Was just about to suggest DED aswell, It might be just about the same and less hassell.
