    Not a ton of reviews out there, but Ive read and heard nothing but good things about the Delta 5-50x56. Tired of not being able to touch one myself so I ordered one. $1725 shipped through Optics-trade.eu cuz they had them in stock. They sell at other places for around $1900-$2200 +/-.

    I believe the new Trijicon 5-50x56 "may" be the same scope in different clothing all made by the same high end Japanese manufacturer.

    Will post my own thoughts when I get done testing the optic, but any additional input on them is appreciated.

    Ilya Koshkin has one for testing at the moment. I think it might be the 5-30x56. He's dropped several comments indicating it's a very good scope for the money.

    Yeah it was hell finding somewhere that had them in stock and able to ship to the US. I believe "Mystic Precision" is the only dealer that can get them but I think he's Canadian. I know its easy to get things from Canada into the US, but Optics-trade.eu had them in stock for a lot better deal and 14 day no questions asked return policy. Never ordered from this company before tho. Hope I don't have any issues with shipping from a European dealer. I've ordered other scopes from outside the US before so hoping everything goes as well as it has for me in the past.

    Optics trade is definetly 5 star in both service and pricing .

    Delta new HD scopes seem to be great bang for the buck.

    They've already shipped the scope on Monday morning, the 11th. I paid an extra $10 for the UPS shipping. Tracking estimates delivery on the Wednesday 13th...I will shit a brick if it makes it from Slovenia, EU to Montana, USA in 3 days! Lol. I suppose it's possible. Definitely will be a repeat customer if their shipping is really that fast. I would be absolutely thrilled even if it took 7 days. Just have to see.

    DHL and FedEx do similar shipping as far as speed goes. DHL have a guaranteed 3 day delivery policy, and their strike rate is over 97%.

    The warranty isn't great, and where do you have to send them for repair?

    Well according to my tracking it looks like it might make it in 3 days. Be damn close if it doesnt. That's amazing! :D

    Well it's at my house. Wife confirmed she received it today. Really did make it in 3 days. Amazing! I'm flying from overseas today and will be home Friday afternoon. Excited to see what this scope can do :)

    I'll bet it can resolve things and give an aiming point as well. :D

    I sure hope so ;)

    With 100 MOA of elevation, zero stop, 10X mag range and a good reticle, I'm sure I'll like the Delta. They definitely put together a complete LR shooting package when they thought up the design.

    They are heavy as a brick. March is the only one making a light weight, high mag scope.
