Leupold "Tactical" Scope Warranty

I always assumed they were the same as their hunting line, Full Lifetime Guarantee... however I just found out that they state this in regards to their tactical line scope warranty

"Warranties on Leupold® Mark 4®, Mark 2®, and Tactical optical products vary depending on use and other factors."

They give a number to call for more info but I'd rather just ask before bugging them on the phone...

Anyhow I'm just wondering - I like the 4.5-14 long range scope. I see this is in the VX III line 30 mm main tube etc target turrets etc etc.. however I have a good price on the Mark 4 model that has the same specs besides being built a tad heavier.

The warranty on the Mark 4 would most definitely be better than the vx III? I am only using this scope for long range target shooting and varmint hunting. No military/tactical use is in the foreseeable future.

Thanks if you know any details... if not I'll give them a shot tomorrow.

They have the same warranty.

I have called leupold on this issue, and the guy said they have to say that in writing because of extreme use military or LE applications. He said to a consumer its the same lifetime warranty as all of the others.

That is 100% correct.

Re: Leupold "Tactical" Scope Warranty

Leupold has had a lot a quality issues on the MK4 line with canted reticles and tracking issues in the past. Some folks get theirs fixed others don't as it's hit and miss. The canted reticle issue was big and Leupold pretty much ignored users stating the reticle cant was within their specs. Sorry when I spend over a grand for their top of the line scope I want the reticle straight, not canted.

A lot of tactical shooters have given up on Leupold as they have not kept up with the tactical shooters requirements and quality and CS has been poor at times. This is why I've sold all my Leopold’s tactical scopes.

If you’re looking for a tactical scope, there are much better choices than Leupold often for less money.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the new Vortex tactical scope line.

I love the way we treat american companies. No wonder why they go overseas.
