Re: Need a new scope in the $1000 range
There is always the used market. A used Husky or S&B can be had for less than a grand or a Leupy Mark 4, all with excellent, transfereable guarantees so if you purchase used and it has any issues, returning it to the manufacturer should cure them.
Something to ponder.
Just because it's preowned don't make it junk.
.........and, I can live with light ring marks because the previous owner didn't have the foresight to lap the rings. I prefer none, but light marks or a nicked turret don't detract from the tracking or thr clarity of the glass.
