picked up the IB pressie today :claphead (In Between birthday and x'mas).......... Leupold VX3 6.5-20 X 40 EFR in fine duplex, extra 4" sunshade and alumina flip-up covers.
eeish, the quality/optics = excellent. even flip up covers are in the league of their own. these are threaded, alumium, hold in place by magnets and sealed by triple o-rings :thumbsup
interestingly this scope retails for $100 less than the big nikko's in the US........
got them from DIW in stellenbosch (decided to give them a try as my preferred dealers don't have them in stock) the service was very good from initial query to scope in hand took 2 days all done by email. everything came in the original packaging. ie. still in the sealed plastics.
