I just received my new Leupold MKIV scope which comes with the Alumina flip-up lens covers? I noticed on the PO that the Alumina covers were back ordered. Do you guys know when you will get another shipment in? I'm awaiting the lens covers before I mount my scope due to the potential of not being able to screw them on when mounted as the scope is mounted in lows rings.


P.S. One capability you may want to add to your site is the ability to view whether the items are in inventory. I really like what (competitor) does on their site and think it would benefit your customers.

Have these Lumina covers come in yet? I received word from Stephanie on 10/18/05 that the ETA for these covers to come in would be 10/31? I still haven't received my free Lumina covers for my MKIV purchase. Any information appreciated.

The covers are designed to be able to be installed while keeping the flip cover in the same position. You can go ahead and mount your scope then just install the covers at a later time and not have a problem. Due to the popularity of these covers, and the extensive back orders we have for them. We are unable to give you a solid time frame. Our computers spit out expected time frames based on previous deliveries. The time frames are right most of the time but in situations like these when the manufacture is swamped you will experience delays. I asked you to email us before so we could make reference to your order, and not have your information publicized. Next time email us so we can see your personal order. No need to post this type question on a public forum.

Just wanted to clarify something. I'm not trying to air out dirty laundry here. I like ordering from you guys and have ordered from you before I purchased this scope. However, the reason I ordered the MKIV from you guys was the free shipping and the free included Lumina covers. Had I known that these things were so back-ordered before purchasing, I would have purchased elsewhere. In fact, I canceled my Badger order due to SWFA not being able to give an ETA when there would be some in inventory. It's been over a month since I received my scope and still no covers. I just sent an email asking for an answer on these covers. Thanks for your help...
