This should be interesting..
I have a Zenith 1.5-6x42 with the Flashdot 9 reticle that I absolutely love.. had it for about 4 years..

Saw the Stratos at SHOT 2 years ago and they had a 1.5-8x42 with the new day/night dual illumination system that looked interesting.

I waited about a year they still hadn't become available.

I contacted Mark at S&B a few days ago and he had one he could send me.
I am very anxious to try it out..  They offer a target style low profile elevation turret but did not have any in stock.  I would have preferred that over the capped knob but I went ahead anyways.

I will report back soon

Is there any indication on when they will be available for purchase in the US?

I was looking at these scopes last year and they weren't available.  Would love to pair one up with a Sako Roughtech Range in 7mmRM, maybe both will eventually be available.

got it in...

Nice scope of course

My 1.5-6x42 zenith has a slight bit of tunneling at the lowest setting which goes away with just a minor increase in magnification.

The Stratos has none...

I need more time on it..
