As some of you will know, I'm just starting out and currently trying to sort through what I want, equipment-wise, in my head. Which calibre, new or s/h rifle, which scope, which bino's, etc. etc., lots to think about as I'm sure you'll appreciate!! One thing I have kinda decided on is that I'd like a S&B scope on whichever rifle I get. I like the make and think they seem good value for money.
Today I went into my local gun shop and was speaking to him about various things (he was very helpful), and when speaking to him about scopes he pointed out that they have a S&B 8x56 Hungarian in stock at £595. It's the last one of that batch and he said the price of those scopes is going up by nearly 100 quid any time now (in fact, I think he may even be marking that one up in the next couple of days).
I couldn't help but wonder if I should think about buying the scope. My main questions are - Is this a good price? And does anyone know what sort of warranty these scopes carry?
Obviously I don't want to get too far ahead of myself, I know that when I eventually get my rifle I might get a cheap combined deal including scope, but just couldn't help but wonder about this one!!
