    Swarovski scope

    Evening all. Where is the best place to buy a Swarovski Z3 scope? Thinking a 3-10x42 with plex reticle. Is it cheaper to import?

    I have the same but BRH reticle. Got mine from shooters supplies christchurch, they should be able to beat any quote you get. Will save bugger all importing at the current exchange rate

    Ask 45South for a price, he's pretty sharp on that sort of stuff.

    You wouldn't know what to do with yourself. It would shoot well outta the box and wouldn't have to be a gunsmith yo-yo

    When you come down for a cham I will let you shoot it with a blaser. No sakos allowed in my hunting spots. 😆
    I heard you would have a big sika on your wall if you borrowed James blaser?😆

    Almost bought a mint BSA monarch in .222 for a song the other day for my boy.

    Haha those Blasers are over engineered pieces of German shite! Can't blame the gun on the jap. It was a kimber. I hit a f...ing piece of rubbish with the bullet and it didn't get there. I reckons barnes bullet would have made it!

    Those BSAs are nice gear.

    I couldn't get the bolt out to view the barrel but it is cosmetically mint. It had character and I like downloading the .222 with shotgun/pistol powder for rabbits and such.
    Germans over engineer everything and everyone. That's why their stuff is considered the best.

    The Fins are a cold miserable people and suck at their national sport. Evident in their manufacturing as well😆

    back on subject, I bought mine from BHPhoto in USA. Ship it to a mate and get it here via them. Half the cost of NZ.

    Have a look at a zeiss HD5 in the same mag range Ginga. Not a bad scope at all. I sold my Z5 for one.
    Slightly heavier but glass is as good as the swaro imo.
