Does anybody know where I can get a Nikko Stirling Diamond Sportsman 10-50X60 or a Schmidt & Bender 12.5-50X56 FT scope in Canada?

I doubt you'll find such high end optics in stock easily. I'm sure you could find a gun shop that will special order one in for you though. AofA has the Nikko so you could get it from there if it doesn't work out up here.

Old Van... Regarding Schmidt & Bender in Canada, the only listed dealer appears to be "Wolverine' in Virden, Manitoba. www.wolverinesupplies.com As far as the Nikko Stirling, I'm not aware of any dealers in Canada, I was under the impression that the quality of Nikko is at the other end of the spectrum compared to S&B. Is your experience different ? Anyway, welcome to Canada and I hope you can help to "kickstart" Field Target in B.C. MEC Merritt B.C.

Hi MEC. I have two Big Nikkos that I've been using for FT. They are definitely the best in the Nikko Stirling lineup. For the money they're top notch scopes, and the S&B isn't 3 times better as the price suggests. The Nikko and the S&B are the only two scopes built for FT from the gound up. I'll be bringing my two Nikkos with me, so the question about availability is purely out of curiosity and also from a service viewpoint. They have lifetime warranties, so if something goes wrong I would have to take it to my nearest dealer. So far though they have performed faultlessly, and the one is already 5 years old.

I ordered my Nikko from Straight Shooters in the US.
