Source of Kite Skua SOC for ATX in the US

Good evening. I am considering Kite Skua or Swarovski stay on case from my ATX 95. Kite website shows Eagle Optics as the only "dealer" in the US but they have gone out of business last year. Are any of you know of any source where I can purchase a Kite Skua SOC in the US?

I have emailed Kite about this but I have not heard back from them yet.

Regards,

I have the Kite Skua on my ATX 95. Don't remember where I purchased it, but very likely it was EO. I really miss that store.

The Skua has some issues I covered in this thread:

Thanks for the reply Bill. I went ahead and ordered a set from a store in England. It was actually less to order from them than ordering from a dealer in Canada...go figure!

I have read your thread about the foam prior to ordering mine. I like your solution and I will look into attaching the front lens cap with Velcro system.

Swarovski case seems quite nice but the fact that it interferes with a full access to focus and magnification rings was a deal breaker for me.
