    Red dot sight from Ebay.

    Query. I am looking at getting a cheap sight, before I spend bigger $$$, to play with on my .22, but, in the current climate, I am wondering if it will end up in the Black hole of Customs. Thoughts?

    Ive got a cheap China one you can have its still in the box make an offer?

    Sold as seen.

    I have goods held for over seven weeks apparently in customs even though i have supplied post and customs an email with a copy of my import permit, seems like a form of confiscation as no one can tell me anything.

    Possibly part of the death by 1000 cuts, if you cant get it they don't need to ban it.

    Just my opinion.

    Very tempting but just had a thought the socialist / greens may pay more in the next few months again further demonstrating their business experience, acumen and abilities "lets do this"

    You get what you pay for. I grabbed a red/green dot thing (1x40 IIRC) for my paintball marker, didn't cost much $, from the store in town

    It hasn't died yet, not that it's taken any hits, or that recoil is an issue.
    They work OK for point-n-click shooting but since most of the illuminated dots (even on expensive brand ones) are 2MOA, they're not for long range or high accuracy.
