    Looks interesting... Pricing looks good too, even if I have to buy direct from the US. If only they had one with an illuminated reticle.

    I did a search and found this:

    Scroll down the page for specs.

    There might be a European line with different parameters (1.5-6x42, 3-12x56 etc) and illuminated reticules ?

    Who knows?

    It looks like with their binos they introduced them at a resonable price and waited to build up a lot of people saying "these things are as good as the top end stuff as makes no practical difference." I believe they are now relaunching their binos and prices are now similar to the top end stuff. I'm glad I bought my HGs for 400.

    I wonder if they will do the same thing with the scopes? If that is the case then a good deal might be available.

    Even a 3 - 9X40 would be suitable for most stalking and at $399 you couldn't go wrong but as you say glogin it will be interesting to see if any more common European sizes become available.

    I have a Minox spotting scope, its very good quality glass for the price.

    I would welcome the addition to their product range, if they made then with 30mm tubes......
