Thread: S&bender

  1. #1

    S&bender

    Gents , I have been looking at the Schmidt and bender web site , apparently you can change a reticle if the scope number is over 10000 , is there any body ever done this and if so how much did they charge? I would like to change my S&bender to an IR

    Bet it's cheaper to sell and buy if their labour charges are anything to go by!

    i paid 300 labour to replace a non IR ret and that's with them paying for parts

    imagine the parts would be at least a few hundred quid on top

    did you get a quote?

    I have been in conversation with them about changing the standard A4 reticle in a 6x42 to a fine reticle & they were happy to help. They wouldn't give a price as it had to go through a dealer/agent & they would have to advise re. the price. I was also told that they couldn't convert the 6x42 to IR.

    They are very good at responding to e-mails & forwarding them to the correct department & seem comfortable conversing in English.

    Good luck & let me know how you get on.

    Interesting about having to go through a dealer. I was told I would have to send my PM11 myself. Schmidt no longer have a UK distributor and service the UK retail outlets from Germany.

    send it direct pay in Euro's

    sending mine through a dealer was a mistake.
    not only did it take longer it cost me at least 20% when they paid S&B and I had to pay them in Sterling with VAT!!

    they will take it direct

    I believe it's around the €140 mark for a standard reticule....

    By standard I mean any of their reticules, non illuminated.

    3 years ago I was quoted 703 + vat and postage to change to an IR reticle from the Schmidt and bender factory. I can't imagine that this has reduced any in price since. It would be far cheaper selling yours and buying an IR scope.

    Scotty , that's a lot of money, was that through a agent over here to deal with it? Or direct
