Re: bushnell warranty CRAP!!!

Just put a Leupold on my 30-30 woods gun after the Bushnelll wouldn't hold vertical zero after one year's use...very diappointing. went through two boxes of shells to figure it out...

Re: bushnell warranty CRAP!!!

I have had my share of all three brands, and will not buy another either. But, it is unfair to condemn the high end Bushnells, especially the 3200 and 4200 series. I have a 6-24 Model 4200 and it is a very good scope, never had a problem with it.

I was coerced to try another of the same model so I bought another. That one lasted a little less than 200 shots.
If by "condemn" you mean speak the truth, I disagree.

Re: bushnell warranty CRAP!!!

I had a Kimber TLEII that had extraction issues. I called customer service and told them my issues, they said "That isn't right, send the gun to me." I sent it on Monday (overnight). They called me on Wed, and said they had fixed all the issues, and the gun would be in my hands on Thursday. I was speechless. They wound up replacing my slide, throating/polising the chamber, and repinning a part that was a little off. I've shot well over 1000 rounds and it has been flawless.

Re: bushnell warranty CRAP!!!

The only Bushnell scope I have is a 4-12x40 Sportsview, the one with stadia reticle that I bought in 1990. It was mounted on my Savage 111F .300WM without brake for 14 years without any problem. I still have it but now sits atop a 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser.

Re: bushnell warranty CRAP!!!

I've twice sent older Bushnell scopes in for repair & each time got back scopes that were listed as "repaired" but appeared to be brand new. I was quite pleased.

I am not as happy with my last return to Leupold.
