I have not heard of Leupold doing that to anyone, have you?
Not three weeks ago, a fellow on AR15.com was selling the same scope, which I identified as the "Varminter" line after talking to Nightforce. I was interested in it as well.
A call to Nightforce, with the serial number, revealed the same thing you are talking about here.
Calling and saying it was a 3.5-15x56 would likely get you a different answer, as depending on who you got on the phone...and if they asked you if it was an NXS or not.....
You bought a older USED scope. There isn't anything WRONG there, yeah it sucks, but it isn't WRONG.
The only obligation, if any, is in some states they have to supply service parts for X many years. I suspect based on other similar product statutes that the law would not apply to subsequent owners.
Parts Availability Laws by State
Leupold, Burris and Aimpoint have all offered me coupons, discounts, etc. in the past when a product that was no longer supported needed service.
IOR on the other hand, gave me the address to Romania, and told me it would be awhile, if the scope made it through and back out of customs at all.
