I'm pretty set on getting the new 5-25 with H-58 reticle and locking turrets and was wondering what everybody's go to place the best prices and short waits. Also somewhere that has a MIL discount and ships to an APO would be good but not necessary.
Where do you guys get yours?

Most vendors here are GTG. They enjoy working with customers for the most part. Their reputation is ridding on a very small groups of people. I have done several transactions with Jay at Sportsoptics (Opticspecialist here). Top notch performer. No problem with that is more than happy to do future purchasing with him.

With their massive price increase that just took place, I would say anyone that has what you want in stock at pre Nov. 2011 cost.

Alex at EuroOptic, I've been dealing with him exclusively for 7+ years maybe longer. First class operator for all your high end Optic needs

Cheers

EuroOptics: A great organization that has grown by leaps and bounds over the last 7 years that I have been dealing with them. The reason they have grown is very simple, customer service and good prices.

Jay at Sportoptics. He's put up with my pestering for a long time, and STILL treats me fantastic.

Re: Best place for new Schmidt & Benders

Holy Shit prices have went up on S&B's. And typical, I'm waiting for the funds from a rifle I just sold to buy a PMII and see that it went up almost eight hundred bucks on EuroOptics website.

Fucking hell, $3029 bucks for a non-illuminated PMII in 4x16x50.

Its amazing how much optics cost now days. Theory: companies can only charge (MAX) how much they charge the public for gov contracts... Raised retail price = less $ wasted on their "discounted" rates to gov.


That's my conspiracy theory.
