Hello all,
 
I'm new here and know that there is a wealth of knowledge here.
 
I am wanting to know when FFP scopes were first introduced.
 
A gentlemen is selling a Leupold scope to me and had it sent to Premier Reticle to have the duplex changed to a GEN II Reticle and also to have it changed from SFP to FFP.
 
The date on the invoice is 2003.  Was FFP scopes available at thattime ?
 
Thanks.

Welcome to Optics Talk, JLCMSC. 

Are you asking if ANY FFP were offered as early as 2003, (in that case, the answer is yes), or specifically, if Leupold could/would change a SFP to a FFP reticle at that time?

Thank you so much for responding. 
The Gentlemen who has it for sale told me that he sent it to Premier Reticle in 2003 to have the duplex reticle changed over to the Gen II Mil Dot and change I'm assuming from a SFP to a FFP.
 
I just wanted to be sure that the FFP was available at that time.
 
I know that Premier did all of the reticle changes and warranty work for Leupold at that time.
 
I have the exact scope but a SFP and want this one for a .308 gas gun.  Would like to buy the new S&B 3-20X but $3,500.00 is a little steep right now.  Do I need it ?  No but at my age my eye's are not what they use to be and I thought that extra magnification would be of some help.
 
Currently shooting out to 900 yards and it is a little tough but doable.
 
I do know there are other scopes out there I just like quality and that costs a lot of money.
 
Thanks again for the information.

WELCOME TO THE OT!
 
Might want to look at the SWFA SS 5-20x50.They are having a group buy and you will stand to get a great scope with excellent glass for a steel,then later you can get the Alpha glass on a trade back to SWFA,the SS do hold their value.
 
These scopes are also built like tanks & they have as good CS backing as there is in the business.
