Hello to you all from Britain,

Please would you Gentleman give me your opinions on these scopes ? you may find that the 4.5x14x44 body style looks familiar as it shares the same dims as a discontinued Ameriacan model, they are made in Japan for us..

 

The reticle was designed by myself,Could be to expensive for the US market but I am sure you will let me Know.

I look forward to talking to some of you, and getting a different point of view from the UK.

Best regards

Alan

Welcome to the OT Alan! Glad to have ya here! I've never heard of these scopes before. How much do the scopes retail for in U.S. dollars? Which optics manufacture in Japan makes these scopes and who in U.S.A. imports these scopes? Thanks in advance for the info!

Hi

 

Thanks for you reply,

 

In the UK the 4.5-14x44 retails for GBP 389.00   We have no US distributer at present (but we would like to find one) & we are new to the tube world & this is our 1st venture so we have no idea of concept at the moment of what the price would be in the US. However, because we maufacture in high quality small numbers, as I said in my original post they may be too expensive for the US but we anticipate the price to be the same as in the UK.

 

They are made for us by Low Ltd who are our partners, as you may or may not know there are quite a few US manufacturers who use them but it may be inappropriate to mention on this forum.

 

Hope to speak to you again soon.

 

Alan
