No I'm no Internet know it all. i don't go around putting stuff down unless i have first hand info.(meaning i have or have had one are have used one of what i'm talking about).
i bought a millet 4x16x56 to put on my 223. it looked like a real nice scope and for a 223 i figured it would work real well and it did for about 6-7 months. i real liked the scope it was nice and clear and tracked OK and at night i could see good to shot with out a light. i was happy with it till the back lens fell out in to the main body of the scope. it had a warranty so i figured no big deal. i called Millet they said to send it back so i did. after about 6 months with no scope and no response. i gave them a call they told me that they where having trouble with that line of scopes and where short on some parts but it should not be much longer. i said no big deal just let me know they said they would keep in touch. after about 3-4 more months with no call. i once again gave them a call. they said they had got the parts in and was working on getting the scopes that had broke back to people and mine was to be fixed the next week and they would ship it out right away and they where sorry for the trouble. i said great no big deal at lest they knew they had a problem and they where getting it fixed. after 4 more weeks go by and no call. i call again but this time I'm kind of getting a little POed i ask what the hell is going on with my scope. the person that was on the phone starts out by saying (well we are short on parts for that scope and are having trouble getting them)????????????????????
so i go into telling the whole story and that i have already went down this road and that after all of this time ,this is a big bunch of and i want my money are a scope. so she gets someone else on the phone and i have to tell the story again. after the guy here's whats went on and he give me the I'm sorry line and he would see to it that i get a new scope and it would be sent out this week. GREAT FINALY!!! well two weeks go by and no scope or call. so i call again and I'm pissed this time. well they have no clue of what I'm talking about with the new scope deal because they have been (having trouble getting parts) to build this scope and they have been on back ordered for over 9 months. no **** well i finally get someone on the phone that seemed to know what he was talking about. he told me that they didn't have any of those scopes but would be willing to send me other scope to make up for it. at this time i'm like what ever it takes to get it worked out. so i tell them what scopes i wanted and finally get them here after a year. i had something back to show for my money not the scope i wanted but o well great.
i mount one on a H&R 243 one on a 17HMR and gave one away to a friend for a 270 H&R mind you two out of the three where there gold line and one was there silver line. with in two months the one i had on the 243 was broke and after 6-7 months the one i gave away was broke as well. so out of 4 scope over 2years of time wasted only there silver line 3x9 was working and still is witch is on a 17HMR. i have also had a set of there ring back on my 300rum brake witch cost me a hole day of driving to get it fixed while i was on a hunt in new mexico. but i have had leopolds do the same thing no big deal.
so i hope for you that they have improved there scopes. i would not want any body to go through what i did. like i said i really like them up till this all went down. Hey we all want a good scope at a good price. sorry for the long post and i was not knocking your rig it looks great hope you have some great luck with it and i will be watching to see if you have any trouble. if knot i may get one again some day.
