Thread: European Optics.

    European Optics.

    Hey guys,

    I'm over here on a working overseas experience for a year and would to love to purchase some quality European optics (Leica, Zeiss, Swarovski) to take back home to New Zealand when I depart.

    Any retailers, or specific websites I can start searching for?

    Primarily after some 10x42 binoculars.

    Thanks,
    Pop Shot

    I'm going to have to start by asking what a "working holiday" is. It sounds like a "cold fire" or "dry water"....

    Changed my original post. It's more of an overseas experience - a loosely used New Zealand term. Work for three months and then travel for a while, work a tad more and then travel again and so forth. Using the UK as my base for exploring Europe.

    Welcome aboard. Can I suggest you plot a trip (or two) up to Scotland? Perhaps a visit to Tain too? http://www.rmacleod.co.uk/ Good luck. JCS

    +1 for Mcleods.

    Hard to beat on price and usually some further negotiating can be done with Gregor over the phone.

    I'd also have a look at www.uttings.co.uk they have some good offers sometimes.

    Thanks for the start guys - I see there is a buy/sell section on this forum.

    Will definitely get up to Scotland, the Lakes District is on the list already.

    Hi Pop Shot
    Hope you enjoy your stay in UK.
    Should you find yourself in Yorkshire and the Leeds area in particular drop in to Swillington Shooting Supplies. If not then ring them as they do Mail Order. They are hard to beat for Optics prices.

    How about an M.P. It beats having a proper Job.
