    If you add shipping costs etc, is it worth importing something like a scope or other accessories?

    Does anyone have a list of overseas companies that ship to SA?

    most do but if you order small quantities the transport costs are high...

    I import Leapers scopes but have to place large orders everytime since they only ship FEDEX

    IMHO it is not worth bothering. Scopes are cheaper in SA !!!

    Imported an alu case about 2 weeks ago. The transport + customs / taxes made up an very uncool 50% of the total price.

    Must say imo it's not worth it to import one or 2 articles except when it couldn't be sourced and you don't want the local available version. Transport is killing the "good price" .

    As they say - it's not cheap to fly first class.
