    Default ordering scopes from overseas?

    maby thinking of ordering a big nikko from overseas what would the import duties be like for it?is there any danger of damage occuring on its way over here?or is it better just to buy it here?

    i did a side by side test diamond 6-24 X 42 vs nighteater 6-24 X 56 (it should be similarly spec'ed to the ags/leapers 8-32 X 56) a while back.........up to 50m, clearity/shapness of the image was pretty much the same but the nighteater was positively brighter. both got mildots.......diamond set @ 10X where's the nighter @ 16X (i assume). both come with open turrets, but no sniper/target turret for the nighteater.......if you are planning to dial-in, it might be an issue. perhaps look into some custom bling-bling turrets. both come with smaller side wheel, but the ags big side wheel is an option for the nighteater.

    i've seen the big nikko advertised for R4100 in the magnum, not sure if it's still the case. i paid slightly more then that........still it's cheaper than BAR's price even if you take away the UK VAT and add say 50 quid shipping, and no ZA VAT or duties...etc. and i get local support.

    The Diamand looks like a very nice scope. The only thing that put me off it was the shiny gloss black finish. Kinda makes it look cheap. Then again that's only cosmetics - how it performs is another matter.

    Urabus - I was looking at getting one of those Nighteaters - but how do you think 24X mag would be for FT? Barely enough to cope?
