I placed an order for two Monarch scopes, all went through, but a little while later received this message:



We regret to inform you that the following merchandise is currently back ordered:

We maintain a multi-million dollar inventory and take great pride in our order fill rate. However, other factors beyond our control sometimes play a role in delivery. We are working diligently to ship your order at the earliest possible date.

Thank you for choosing SWFA.


Does that mean the order will be placed at a later time, or does this mean the order is cancelled?

the way brady and chris have been talking they are getting nikon scopes in almost dailey and with exception to the 2x7x32 i am sure that when the get to your name on the list they will send it out i think they are doing it based on order date first come first serve type deal and i far as i have heard they are getting a whole bunch of 3x9's so dont worry just yet, they will let you know if you arent getting a scope.

Heh, heh, heh, a little gun shy after the Sportsmans Guide .308 ammo debacle!

 Alls I know is that the message from Chris from Swfa at the start of the forum is that supplies were limited so order now. From what I understand Nikon is coming out with a new line for 2007. So I dont know if they can  backorder something that they don't make anymore. I would call S.W.F.A. and I am sure that they would be able to help you. Good luck!

Are the Monarchs that are listed as "New", from their new line-up, as they are much higher in price than the previous models?

I too got the back order notice but a week later my 6.5-20 Monarch showed up, so don't be too concerned.

I ordered a Nikon (SKU 6526) on 1/21 and have yet to see it. I have called about this and the answer I get is that they are expecting them "any day". I'm hoping it comes soon as I have a Sako waiting to be sighted in.

I ordered a 5.5-16.5 on 1-19 that I was going to put onto a 25-05 encore barrel. That barrel would only group with 87 gr bullets the 115 threw about a 6 inch group at 200 yds. So while I'm waiting for the scope I traded off the barrel for a 30-06 barrel that I scoped with a Leu 3-9x40 Mk4 PR that was on the .375 H&H barrel (wrong scope for a .375 anyway). Also picked up a flat top AR at the gun show. So I probably need an EOTech and a low power scope now.

Alright, I just read the long post.  I don't mind waiting for my two scopes, just hadn't heard anything and, alas, had not visited here in a while.

They emailed my friend, who also ordered the same scope as me, a 5.5-16.5X44 Monarch BDC , and said their supposed to get an order of over 1000 scopes in from Nikon.  Then they posted in one of the threads about the shipment supposedly coming in on March 12, so it should be shipped in the next week or two.

I spoke with Stephanie today regarding Monarch stock and my backorder, and she said there was one shipment expected as previously stated on the 12th.

 

However, she said the non-BDC model (5.5-16.5x44 in Matte/Nikoplex) is IN STOCK, so it was a tough choice whether to get a Nikonplex now, or wait for the BDC to come in.  I haven't had a BDC before, so I will wait a week or so.

 

So, I hope to see a BDC soon! Getting that little sucker figured out relative to my rifle/load/etc should be fun... I am looking forward to it.  Next will be tailoring reloads and then looking for a better spotting scope! But that is part of another forum here on SWFA.

 

Anyway, my point is that for those not wanting the BDC, the 5.6-16x44 in matte is in stock now.

 

Regards,

Ron

It isn't hard guys.

Order by phone.

The nice lady confirms its in stock.

You pay.

Email confirmation of delivery follows and your scope arrives +/- one day of estimate.

If it isn't in stock, decide to order and wait or go elsewhere.

If you order and wait then live with the decision.

I sure agree with 45-70, I call, and Stephanie has been most pleasant to deal with...she is clear on what is in, and what is not. I make a decision, and get what is in stock or wait for the backorder to arrive.

 

PS...back order just came in for me..got the notice that my Nikon Monarch 6.5-20x44 BDC is on its way!!

And, my 5.5-16.5x44 Matte Plex Monarch came last week.

Still waiting on the 5.5-16.5x44 BDC Monarch tho...

 

Regards,

Ron

Er, eh, uh, that's what we're doing.  I'm not in any hurry, not anxious, just reporting a status.  I thank you for the oh so sage advice all the same.  I did, after all, ask for it.
