Shipping question - not sure of the best place to

Hi All,

I am trying to ship a scope to Eastern Europe but am having a heck of a time finding any shipper who is even half way reasonable. The scope as packed would be approximately 12"x12"x50" and weigh about 18 pounds. FedEx and UPS are quoting over $1100, USPS SAYS THE PACKAGE EXCEEDS THEIR SIZE LIMITS (the clerkat the PO said they changed their maximum dimension limit). Going to DHL shipper later today to see if they are any better. Any suggestions!

Can you pack it in a smaller (shorter) box to be under the USPS limits?

Hi Larry

You can check with to see whether they can ship it for you. I know they have a very good rate.

Btw is it the Pentax 105sd?
