We really hate raising prices, but we have been holding off as long as we could and the pricing of components just keeps going up each year. We need to announce that the base rifle package price on the Remington 700 package and Howa 1500 tactical rifle package will be going up on May 1, 2017.  The Tikka T3x package prices will remain the same for the time being.

Of course, if you already have a rifle package on order, your pricing will not be effected and if you order before May 1, 2017 you will get the current pricing. The Remington 700 base package price will be $1450 and the Howa 1500 base package price will go up to $1350. All of the upgrade prices will stay the same. At the same time we are looking at changing the base scope from the Bushnell Elite Tactical 10x40mm to a variable power Vortex Diamondback Tactical 4-12x40mm. We are testing that scope right now to insure that it is suitable, but testing so far says it is a nice upgrade to the Bushnell.

Again, we are sorry to have to raise the prices, but unfortunately it is a fact of business life that the cost of components seems to always go up. The packages are still the best deal going and we love building the creations that our Sniper Central community members come up with!

If I were to place an order now for the Remington 700 rifle package would you include the Vortex variable scope, if testing showed it was a better scope/ upgrade to the Bushnell Elite Tactical or would my order lock in the Bushnell?

Yes, just put it in the notes when placing your order that you would prefer the base Vortex over the bushnell, no price change.

Has a final determination been made regarding switching the Vortex as the base scope over the Bushnell Elite?

We are just finishing up the final evaluation of the scope right now (review will be posted friday). We are testing the internal mechanisms as well as doing the shooting tests. Provided these results pass, we will be switching.

I recently purchased one of your Remington packages and subsequently charged the full price based off of my chosen options , However my membership discount was not deducted .

Just contact Bryon here at SC and he can adjust the price. You may not have been logged in to Sniper Central when you placed your order. It will automatically deduct the member discount at purchase time if you are logged in.
