Re: New Long Range Scope
Sounds like you really don't care to much for the Leupolds! I've never had any trouble with them but I believe we may be a fair bit alike, something bites me on the ***** a few times and I don't much care for it. (I had two Mercedes like that and I'll never own another one, in fact, I wouldn't take a FREE one if it was offered.)
Unlike you, Leupold has not failed me, heaven forbid that they should, I really do like thier scopes and I'm not sure how I'd ever be able to afford changing them all out.
Down at the shoot at the BadLands Tactical Training Center in Grandfield, OK a fella had a Swarovski scope on his rifle...the scope broke!! A rare sight indeed, things went sort of 'all stop' and we all got a look at the thing. (A bit like having a Unicorn prance past, better get a good look because it's not likely to happen again.)
The windage adjustment mechanism became detached from the scope!! It was a nice looking piece of metal tubing at that point but fairly useless as a scope [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] . The owner felt pretty sure that the problem would be fixed by Swarovski, everyone else was in agreement!
