Chris, I see that you are now carrying Docter binos.  What is your impression of the 10x42s?  Are they the "best buy" in european optics, or are they over rated?  How do they stack up against Kahles?  How are they compared to Europe's "Big Three"?  I have never seen a pair in person.  If I buy them it would be based on what you say.  If I get them and hate them what is your return policy?  I need a new pair of quality binos, I cannot get Swaros, Leica, or Zeiss right now because I have to buy two pairs this year.  From what I have been told by others and what I have read, I think the Docters may be my best bet.  The only other concern I have is if I need warranty work done, would that be handled through you or B.C. Outdoors?  B.C. is very famous for poor customer service in years past, I have heard that it has improved, but still needs a lot of work.  Thanks in advance for the info.

I just did what I should have done earlier and read your web info.  According to your website, I assume I would have a ten day window for a return and warranty would be through B.C.  Is or has Docter established a U.S. repair center?  Hopefully I would never need it.  Looking forward to your response.

We just picked 'em up and have yet to receive stock.  I have not done any comparisons with them yet, but from the demo pair they brought by they look pretty good.  They are definitely in line with Kahles.  Warranty is through B.C. in Nevada which will send them to Germany for repair.  They do not have loaners and it could take several months.

Chris, thanks for the info.  When do you expect to have the on the shelf and will you also carry the rifle scope line?

Not sure.  We have a few on order right now.  We did also add some of the scopes.
