I went and looked. I suspect the 'offered items' are limited and who knows what or how they identify a person as being a ligitimate LE.
I also suspect that the New Mark8 isn't an offered item but I'll find out. I'm going to give my friend a call tomorrow. We do 'stuff' back and forth often so I don;t think it's a big deal and knowing him as well as I do, I don't think he will either.
Suffice to say, if I could get one at 40 off list that would probably put it in line with dealer pricing minus 10 estimating the markup on Leupold hardware. I'm not in the firearm accessory business but typically suggested retail versus dealer cost is in the 30-45% range on hardgoods.
At retail, it's in the realm of an S&B, high end Zeiss or March. That is tough company for Leupold to compete in.
I don't understand the marked increase in optics pricing. Raw materials arent climbing and world unrest is pretty stable. Maybe Leupold knows something we don't.
