Leica Service??

I have a Leica ER 3.5-14x42 and have never used it since mounting it on my rifle. I got the rifle out today in preparation for its first trip to the range and upon looking through it I saw that there were three small nicks on the inside of the front lens. Now I really didn't look through it at first when I got the scope so I didn't notice the nicks until now. It also had an issue with the focus lens, I have 20/15 vision an I had to turn the focus lens half way to the right in order to get it focused. Usually I am right in the center with all my other scopes and binos I have. I sent the scope back to Leica USA this afternoon for repair. Which brings me to my question, has anyone had any experiences with Leica service? Will they make it right for me? Thanks in advance!

Mac

I had trouble with my 1600 range finder. Customer service was great. They replaced it very quick and I was back to hunting within 2 weeks. Dan

i ber that Leica is like Leupold and Stevens and (most)all other players and will replace or repair it to as good as new. I know Leica Cameras are excellent.

Re: Leica Service??

I had to send back my 8x42 Ultravid HD binos. They tried to charge me a 100 bucks because they said I had not sent in the warrenty card. I had the seller send them a fax with my receipt and it supposedly is all fine. I really don't have the confidence I once had because the left tube got really blurry and was secreating some fluid. I only had them a yr and took very good care of them. I wish I would have stuck with Swarovski. I sent them back a pair that was 18 yrs old and they refabbed them for NO CHARGE. Only reason I sold them I wanted a bigger objective lens. Let us know how it works out.

Re: Leica Service??

I sent in an older Leica 800 rangefinder for repairs. They said the parts were no longer manufactured and offered to upgrade me to the 1600 CRF for $450. Looks like a good deal. Will probably take them up on it here fairly soon.

Re: Leica Service??

If you bought it used, they will not honor a warranty. Same with Zeiss. I found out the hard way. Cost me $600 to repair a spotting scope.
