Adapted from another forum, where people started noticing that their usual place to purchase from has few or no Schmidt and Bender scopes of any sort.
A previously big seller finally shared that they are returning all unsold inventory, because S&B has given sole US distribution to EuroOptics. All. Even if an Authorized Dealer, you have to buy from them. Since EuroOptic has a retail side, everyone assumes they will jack up prices and mess with availability as a distributor to favor themselves.
Purportedly, no other changes to their support, repair, etc.
So... if you want to buy an S&B, go to EuroOptic from now on I guess.
