    Sightron and Nightforce who is worth asking for a competitive price?

    Looking at a Sightron S3 8x32 -56mm or if I can afford it a NF 15x55 -52mm competition. Who in NZ is worth asking? or buy NF via oz maybe?

    You could try Deadeye Dicks for a price but don't be in a hurry!

    Becausethis one is either used or a demo they may be able to send it to you. they aren't keen to ship new ones, won't actually in my experience.
    Can't hurt to ask anyway.

    Yeah reloaders are fine to deal with, (I buy quite a bit off them) some of the others not so much (right down to awful) and I'm not alone in that opinion.....sad really.

    Thanks ppls, someone just mentioned /recommended a Vortex Golden Eagle HD which I had not noticed and that is getting very good reviews and is under $3k here in NZ v $4k so I think this is of more interest given my budget limits.
