Not to brag or anything but I ordered my 1-4x24 PST from Scott at Liberty Optics on a Monday.....he got stock on Wednesday and I received it Friday

Next time a company is that backordered on a product, look for smaller vendors like Liberty Optics (a Calguns Sponsored Vendor). If I were you guys who have "spots in line", I'd give Scott a call and see what he can do.

MOA FFP 4-16 version.




As for Scott, hes pretty cool when I bought my first vortex scope from him.
but for that 85$ i saved from optics planet thats a few hundred rounds of ammo.

That's okay if you're okay with waiting for 5+ months.....

Walked around the corner to CS Tactical (another Calguns vendor) and walked out with a Vortex PST 2.5-10x44. Doesn't get any better than that!

Yes I was ok with waiting 5 months, the longer I have my money the better.. anyways i shot some rough 1-2 moa groups because I didnt have my larue mount tight enough and didnt have the tool with me.. will go out again next week and see how the groups will shrink.

As a company that is ALSO a CalGuns Sponsoring Vendor, and one that posts on here pretty often, we are well aware of how much the wait for these scopes stinks. Vortex is keeping up with demand the best it can, but we order a couple hundred and occasionally get a couple scopes each week. It's a product with high demand and limited supply.

If there are other vendors that aren't selling them as quickly and have them in stock and you want it right now, go for it. If you're on the list with us, you can always call us at 800-504-5897 and cancel your order. We don't charge you until the order is shipped, so there's no waiting for a refund or anything of that sort (exception: PayPal, but that's PayPal's rules, not us.) It's a really great scope and we all understand how hard it is to wait. I'd tell you we were going to work with Vortex to make sure we'd get more scopes in faster, but the reality is that they just don't have them available and there's nothing we or Vortex can do.

Glad you got your scope Darklyte27, and looking forward to hearing your impressions next week after you have a chance to go out again. We haven't had much of a chance to try the scope out here because every one that comes in the door leaves a couple hours later.
