I guess a number of you are thinking about the Scarp 1 as an alternative to the Laser Comp and the Akto, so I thought I’d give you a quick cost comparison. The Scarp 1 costs $295, which is £182.90 ($/£ 0.62) plus VAT and handling charge of £29.25, for a grand total of £212.15. A quick scan on the web reveals a range of prices for the Laser Comp of £210 – £240 and for the Akto £300 – £340. So it’s comparable to the Comp, but quite a lot cheaper than the Akto. Mine took just over two weeks to arrive, but it was Christmas post.
