    Wellington Guy selling scopes

    Some time ago I happened across a guy in the Wellington area (the Hutt I think) who was selling Chinese made scopes that were well spec'ed at good prices - it was a side business and the scopes were the only thing he sold . . . but now I'm dammed if I can find his website or recall his name, does anyone have any ideas??

    Thats the problem alright, they make some very good stuff, and I'm happy to pay a fair price for it. However out here we have a lot of unscrupulous middlemen who buy up low spec'ed stuff and market it here with huge mark-ups. So its not the Chinese who are ripping us off . . . .
