Nightforce not supporting there older scopes
I recently bought a 3.5-15X56 Nightforce Varminter model scope from a guy at the local range, but before I did I called night force to see if they could install target turrets on it since this model did not have them. The guy I spoke to (I wonít use his name) said yes, they could and that they have the target turrets in stock. So, I called the guy back selling the scope and bought it. I promptly packed it up and sent it in to Nightforce to have the turrets installed.
A couple of days went by and I got a call from the guy at Nightforce doing the work and he said, sorry weíre out of the turrets and we need to check with the supplier Ė Iíll send your scope back (since I was planning to elk hunt with it) and call me in a couple of weeks.
So a couple of weeks go by and I call to see if the turrets are in and Iím told since they donít make that scope anymore, they arenít going to order turrets for it - because they need to order in bulk and it would be too expensive.
Well, I mull it over for a couple of days and realize I really donít like that answer since I bought the scope after I confirmed with Nightforce that they had the turrets and could install them.
I called and spoke to the receptionist and had her connect me with managerís voice mail. I explained my situation and asked to be called back. Within an hour Brian called and explained to me that those knobs were aftermarket (although installed by Nightforce) and that since the scope was ten years old, they could not get them anymore (not the same answer I got from the other guy).
I explained my situation and that I bought the scope after I had asked them about the knobs and is there anything they could do to help rectify the situation Ė trade in credit or something Ė all I got was a sorry and that heíll bring it up with the owner.
Damn, itís a good scope, but a coin slot does not cut it for me.
