Default Best place to buy optics?

Iím tired of waiting for Leupold to get scopes back in stock so I can buy direct at a discount, so Iím just going to bite the bullet and buy a VX-3HD (or 3i if necessary) straight from a retailer. Iíve heard horror stories about optics planet and sportsmanís is out of stock, Amazon wonít ship them to me for some reason. What other good sites are available? Cabelas and Basspro are the obvious ones for this scope, but should I be looking anywhere else or avoiding any in particular?

I generally stick with these vendors when buying optics, especially scopes:

- Euro Optics
- Sport Optics
- SWFA
- Liberty Optics
- Mile High Shooting

FYI, Euro Optics offers discounts for LE/Military and NRA instructors.

I 2nd EuroOptic.
They sometimes have discounted used/demo scopes.
You can email them and ask if they have any used stock if you wanna save some $. Might get lucky.

Only issue I've had with Optics Planet is they won't sell magazines with capacity greater than 10, but that's due to them being located in Chicago/Cook County, IL. If you use their website properly you can see if they have something in stock. If not, they'll tell you the anticipated ship date. It's not like MidwayUSA where they say it's "out of stock, backorder ok" and you're stuck waiting. Btw, whatever the best price is on something that you find anywhere else online, if Optics Planet has it in stock I recommend getting on their live chat and asking them to match the price. They'll ask for a link. I've never had them say no. They won't do additional discounts on top of that though. I just had them do it last week on a Strike Industries forward assist for an AR-10 I'm building where I used an Aero Precision stripped upper. If your order is $50+ it'll ship free. Sorry if I sound like an Optics Planet spoxperson. I'm not, and they aren't always my go to, but thought I'd share my experience with them since you posted up your hesitation. FYI, I say this while I'm waiting on an order that's suppose to ship next month, and another that'll allegedly ship in October.

For scopes, I always check eurooptic.com first because they usually have the lowest prices. If they don't have what I want in stock, then midwayusa.com is where I look next. I've never had an issue with either site.

Call EuroOptic (570)368-3920 I think the last time I spoke with Cory. They will always give further discounts over the phone.

I've found that doing if you can do a optics/mount combo with Geissele, ScalarWorks or Larue yields pretty good pricing. Ive had success with Optics Planet. With OP, I usually start a chat session and then ask for a discount. They usually come back with 8% to 12% off.

Calguns has a vendor/retail listing section that will help you out.

Some have CG discounts/deals too.

I'm going to reiterate CameralandNY. Call Doug, he can often give you deals better than what's advertised online. I got a great deal on an Athlon Ares BTR through them that's fantastic.

Other good sellers are:
EuroOptic
MidwayUSA (they get a ton of Clearance specials)
SWFA & their refurb site SampleList.com
Liberty Optics

I’ve had great experience with Kenzie’s Optics, both with price and quick shipping.
