    Hi All,

    I know that the butler creek 53A's are discontinued, but found the below Dutch shop that has them (5 available), they may have others that are discontinued too.

    https://www.krale-schietsport.nl

    I was thinking, perhaps we could set up some sort of group buy to save on the postage and get some of these plus any others that people need.

    What do people think?

    :)

    I thought 54 was the one discontinued.

    Does anyone know where I can get a 53A in the UK. Every source that I find only goes up to 51 or states discontinued.

    Thanks

    The 53A dia 67.1 mm

    Anyone with a big Nikko that could measure? I have a Dutch bank account so could buy these for UK shooters if they are the right size.

    I have put one of the 53A's on my sightron but had to place in hot water first as it's a very tight fit .

    53A will fit but not as neat and tidy and as stated will need placed in very hot water to soften before fitting.

    Looks like they may have a 62 in stock if it's of any good?
