I would keep saving and buy more scope.
I have a Burris 2x7 handgun scope (bought used with a T/C Contender barrel) that has loose turrets. I sent it back to the factory on 7/21 and called 7/31 to make sure they got it. (Before I sent it in, I called Burris Customer Service and was told I didn't need a RMA#, send it in with a letter explaining what the problem is). The woman in CS told me that there were many boxes to go through yet and to call the following day. I called again on 8/1 and spoke with a man in CS who said that there were still a couple dozen boxes that needed to checked in. He assured me that my scope was among those still not checked in and should be on the log by Monday, 8/4.
Once I am logged, it will be a 2-3 week turnaround for repair.
All I can say is that you can't beat the service from Leupold. That is the scope I would recommend you look at. You can get some great deals from some of the guys here.
