I.O.R. first impressions

Fitted my first 4x14x50 mp8 on friday.First shot yesterday no problem clear picture every thing right .After second shot noticed at 7oclock what I thought was a piece of dirt about 1/16 diameter on the obj lens and rain drop splatters on the same lens.These did not move during elevation adj and as we were having traditional weather didnot think any thing was wrong.Finished the detail detached the scope and tried to clean the obj lens........welfolks what do you know the dirt is inside the scope.Luckly on the second detail the large piece of dirt has fallen down so all I have now is the rain splatter effects.So we will see how the warrenty stands on these......

I had a problem with an IOR scope, and Val stood behind me 100%. The only real thing with Val, is getting ahold of him. If you need a phone # or help in any way, email me or Q-Optics..sakofan....Sorry about your scope. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Re: I.O.R. first impressions

Now Ive cooled down, looking through obj lens the black bit I saw is proberly a piece of the inside coating of the tube and the rain splatters are shards of lens glass stuck on a central lens or the inside of the obj lens.Have phoned the dealer this morning and will be returning the scope tomorrow with promise of a new scope by return post.
May be I should sell the 300wm or is it the 190smk [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Something must being going on with the 4-14x50, I had the same problem, but it looked like tooling shavings. Anyway sent the scope back to the dealer and they replace it. Haven't had a chance to try the new one yet [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]

Re: I.O.R. first impressions

Sure warranty is great but doesn't that tell you the QA is very poor! I had similar problem with a Burris Black Diamond with the same rain splatter effect. It's very annoying on high $ scopes to have to cliam warranty on the first day. I must say Leupold & Zeiss have better QA (my perception). I had over 20 scopes passed thrugh my hands and not one Leupold nor Zeiss had any problem. Using customers for QA is just that... I will only do it once.
