Hey fellas, I thought I pass along a great deal on Zeiss and Swarovski binoculars.  I bout a pair of 10X40 Zeiss Victory's a year or so ago, and lost the receipt, but I came across the web sight again, so I thought I'd share.

Swarovski 10X42 SLC for $794.69
Zeiss 10X40 Victory's for $754.69

Compare these at $999 for the Zeiss and $1025 for the Swarovski's!

Great prices on great products, but for around $350 you can own a pair of IOR 7x40s.  They are every bit as good as any binocular on earth.  I've had my buyers say they couldn't tell them apart from Swarovski or Leitz, and were superior to military Zeiss.  I keep them in stock only until my next gun show, where they have sold out every time.  They are literally and figuratively "money in the bank."

Once I tried "Image Stabilized" binoculars, I never went back to conventional ones.  Give them a try, there are lots of brands.  Looks like you're willing to spend a little more, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Those are good prices.  I assume they are grey market.

If you mean they might be a little warm to the touch, I doubt it, because I bought mine around a year ago.

Grey market means they are not brought into the country through authorized international distribution channels.  This is not necessarily illegal (that is the black market), but there may be warranty, service and quality problems.
