bushnell warranty CRAP!!!

Sent in my elite 1500 a month ago to get fixed just bought it 2 months ago . They email me today that it well be in the system in a couple of weeks and then 6-8 weeks to fix it and then get it back to me another week to ship it back .

That is great I told them considering I own a set of binos as well a 2 ,6-24x50 ao scopes and others over the years . They didnt seem to care and said they well get to it when they can as they are super busy . I replied in saying is there that much bushnell product that is defective out there . He didnt answer.


Just wondering is there anybody else out there that has had this great of service from bushnell ? I think 3 months to fix this is totally unrealistic !!

    Yeah, me too. Several years ago I bought a 8x bino/rangefinder new at $500. Had it a few months and sent it back, told them the right side would not focus. They returned it in about 2 months, service sheet did not say they did anything. Still would not focus and I called them. They said send it in again with a note telling them what was wrong. Few weeks later, a guy called me and said there was nothing wrong with it and they are returning it. I was po'd and let him know it. Told him I would never buy another Bushnell product. He could care less, and would not bend. I sold the bino and bought a Leupold, and I am very happy with it, although it cost a lot more.

    Zeiss isn't much better.I sent in my Zeiss Conquest in for repair in mid-January,now it's mid-March.I emailed customer service a few weeks back,their reply was,it had to be shipped to the factory and the turnaround is usually 8-10 weeks,still waiting.I bought a Bushnell Elite 4200,sent a ten dollar check for the jacket,never got it either.Website said the company that was handling that is no longer in business.

    This is why I refuse to buy anything (except for moments of temporary urgency) from any of the Bushnell companies. Their customer service is a disgrace.

    Barnes is also on my list as of my last conversation with Randy Brooks.
