    A fatter tube gives more elevation adjustment, at least usually. Talks about better coatings, no advantage?

    does not seem to adjust that much further than a 30mm tube from what i can gather. you will be limited on rings as well.

    get something like this on a 10 or 20moa rail. will elave you with change for both rail and rings.

    Do you mean ship it in? or buy here in NZ, that $1k will mean GST...not the end of the world mind.

    ship in if you want. local still being cheaper than the weaver is my bet. ask around and see what you can get it for.

    or buy this.

    What do you want to use it for Steven ??. I had one pretty similar in 6-24x50 elite tactical, be fine for hunting, but i found the crosshairs a little fat for serious rangework, you can buy a nightforce 8-32 or 12-42 benchrest for similar money
