Should be here this week.... I'll know better after it arrives...As for info, when I asked about the 100mm side wheel, Frank the fellow I spoke with went to the shelf and made the effort to confirm stock and measured the side wheel to confirm diameter....
Will keep you posted.... :wink:

I had to order from Marstar as well since D&L was out of stock (like everything else lately :? )
The guy on the phone (didn't get his name) was very friendly and also confirmed the 100mm wheel for me.
When I ordered last week they only had a couple scopes left. After that it could be months until they're available!

What is everybody's opinions on sunshades on scopes? I know they look cool :lol: , but do you guys use them? Thanks.

Well there are situations where they will be of benefit, so generally most people leave them on all the time - and they do look cool...

Has anybody else contacted Marstar regarding their order? I called them yesterday (a week and half after I placed my order), only to be told that my order wouldn't even be shipped until next Wednesday...
I asked why I was told the items I ordered were in stock and ready to ship if it was going to take 2 weeks for the order to even be processed?
The woman from Marstar claimed that they are always at least 2 weeks behind, so being told "ready to ship" really means being added to the end of a very long list.
Needless to say, my first experience with Marstar hasn't impressed me so far....

I remember them taking awhile to ship mine when I got it last year well over a week to process the order - but at the time, they were the only place in Canada to sell them and with the Canadian Dollar at that time, they were also the cheapest place in North America!

I've found that with a lot of 'traditional' firearms retailers, things seem to take a bit of time, this doesn't surprise me.

I would have been ok with the shipping process if they had simply been honest with me as they accepted my payment.
They weren't the cheapest place to purchase from, but they were the only Canadian distributor (that I could find) who had what I wanted in stock.
We'll see if my items show up when they said they will next week...

Marstar came through.... It took 2 weeks and a pinch, but the scopes and wheels were delivered without so much as scratch or ding to the boxes they came package in.... :D

I wish that I could say the same... The box they packaged my scope in arrived pretty beat up and torn open on the bottom. My scope has some superficial marks on it (not attributable to the shipping)
Compared to a package that arrived from D&L the same day, I can't say I was overly impressed with my overall dealing with Marstar.
Oh well, at least I finally have my scope! 8)
