Re: IOR/Liberty Optics Customer service experience
My experiance exactly. Bought a 3-18x42 from liberty Optics several years ago.Known as gen. 1 and have had exactiy zero problems with it. Been banging steel, rocks, and clods to 1100 with regularity. I bought another from Scott at Liberty in May 2012 to mount on a model 12 savage 6.5x.284. It was a 6-24x56 ffp w/ modified mp-8 The Glass is even better which I thought I would not be able to distinguish. The reticle is photo engraved and is even more precisely square at every edge, and has illumination, zero stop, second point of impact indicator and a new eye box. Quite a unit!! However I thought I knew the adjustment procedure for setting the elevation turret to zero and the zero stop but I messed it up some how and probably overtightened a screw. This caused the turret to rotate w/ too much resistance. I sent this to Scott at Valdada and it was returned round trip, repaired in 6 days from Oregon to Colorado and back.
I have had the best experiance of my life learning to shoot at extended ranges and these scopes have been a really big part of removing the other variables that lurk in some of the other scopes I have had. They track like lathes and the glass has a couple steps on anything I have compared them too in the price range, 6x, magnification, FFP, zero stop, 22 mil elevation plus 15 on the reticle, one turn to 1200 on my guns, free rings,great customer service and Scott Berish at Liberty acts more like an advocate for the customer than salesman. Could not ask for any More
