As far as I know (from John), the Golden Eagle that he has is the only one currently in the UK.

Keep an eye on the OpticsWarehouse web site, and as soon as they are available you can be sure they will have them in stock.

I tried the scope which John had on his springer during the worlds. We sat on the plinking range and although I haven't used it in earnest I was very impressed with side wheel function, turrets and optical clarity of the scope. There was not a lot of difference between the quality and sight picture between the Vortex on 40mag and my Leupold comp 40mag.

Does the image still remain clear and sharp at 60x?, How is at rangefinding?. I just read a review in which they say is as clear as 60x March. But they were talking in terms of F Class.

I spoke to john over the euros weekend about his an hand a play on the plinking rang as niel seid above the optics were nice an bright an clear evan on 60x mag an an when ranging came back to tbe same mark each time. The only thing i think maybe a problem for some is the ret is realy fine so may or may not be lost on dark targets in shadows but i was still very inpressed overall.
