Thread: Best place to buy Swarovski 8x56 Illuminated?

    Best place to buy Swarovski 8x56 Illuminated?

    Hi - anyone have any ideas for best price offer on this scope and are they worth the 's I currently use S&B's but looking at better optics and illumination?

    cheers.

    Peter.

    Hi Peter,

    I bought one the other day from my local RFD, same deal as Swillington on the link from glogin.

    Worth every penny and exceeded my expectations so far. A lot of my shooting is at first light; on quite a number of occasions I have not taken a shot as I can't make out the cross hair against the animal, in particular very dark fallow. I zeroed the combo yesterday and at 100yds the illuminated dot just about covered the centre cross I had drawn on my target so about 1/4 inch.

    It will be tried for real on Saturday, but so far very pleased and worth the money.

    Try Gregor from Macleods in Tain, a big sale of Swarovski Scopes and they will price match.....

    Fantastic service from them in the past.

    Bought a PM2 5-25x56 from there, best price in UK. Took my mate there yesterday and he bought a 2nd hand Sauer 202 .243 with Swarovski 6x42 and a moderator for 800 ish, very good buy......

    I'll certinally, whilst up here use them.

    Give Forest Lodge Guns in Wragby a call.

    Open 0900 - 1900 hrs seven days a week, 360 days a year.

    I've bought three Swaro off them these past 18 months, cheaper than I was offered on all the above.

    Don't go to FA Andersons, I spent the best part of 8.5k there and the guy gave me 145 discount! The only reason I went there was I wanted a RPA.
    Obviously they didn't want to see me back.
    There loss, I've got plent more gear I want to get and will be getting it from someone else.
    Rant finished
