    Silver scout

    Hi,
    I have finally got my Sons Marlin 1895SBL shooting well with 355grain NOE cast mould,
    Now we are trying to buy a Leupold FX-11 scout 2.5x28mm silver duplex scope for it but I have been told the silver scope has been discontinued, I did find one on eBay but the seller would not send it to Australia where we live, really would like Silver version of the scope I know it can be purchased in gun metal grey and black but we would like silver, I have even contacted Leopold is custom shop to see if I could cope one in silver but I cannot do that,
    Does anybody know where one of these scopes might be?
    Regards.

    Dave,
    That would have been because any part of ammunition needs a import permit and that includes brass, I am glad they still let moulds through but I bet they are looking at those as well, but for now moulds come in no problem.

    I may be wrong, but I think an individual can get in big trouble for shipping a scope out of the country. As stupid as it sounds I think it falls under the same law as firearms, ammo, etc.

    I found this one but $650.00 Canadian. Out of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. May get you around US shipping laws.

    Thanks for your replys, I found one and snapped it up, it was on a web page of a gun shop in Australia NSW, $420 Aus dollars for a new scope I could not believe my luck, I noticed the model number was correct for the silver duplex scope but they had a gun metal grey photo on the web page, got them to send me a photo of the scope and it was what I have been looking so bought I, 20 dollars postage and I should be here in West Australia any day now, here is the photo they sent me.
