Does anyone know what the go is with the Swarovski dealership in New Zealand. Tried to purchase a scope off a long time seller who was always competitively priced. They were unable to supply anymore due to NZ Ammunition no longer being the dealer.

Yes, i did notice a price reduction two weeks ago for Swaro scopes in Ballingers H&F so that may explain it?

Similar result, when Winchester Aust. took over the Steyr agency from NZ Ammunition. The retail price dropped by $400-$500 on a standard Mannlicher Pro Hunter rifle.  Smiley
  

Get as close as you can, then get a bit closer.

Mr Clark has made a pretty penny or two from NZ punters over the years..

Glad to see some better distribution arrangements.

I am happy with a new Z3 4X12X50 with the 4a reticle for $1300.00 from my local H&F store. Getting rid of the local agent has made all the difference in pricing.
