They assured me it would hold up to it. Appears they were incorrect.

Re: Nikon broke not happy!!!!!!

Not knocking the optics on a Nikon just the CS. When I spend money on something I would like to know that the manufacture stands behind it and won't take their sweet time thinking about it when it does break. I have had a total of 3 Nikons over the years and until one went bad I would have never second guessed them.

Weaver makes great glass also but because of the no fault warranty Sightron offers and their CS they now get most of my business.

Re: Nikon broke not happy!!!!!!

Well after 35minutes on hold I get a guy that barely grasps the English language. Have to ship it back to nikon. Now if the fix or replace I have to decide if I trust it on there again. I'm goin to wyoming next year and would hate to get there from Arkansas an have a problem with it. Can you post pics of the turrets on your weaver? No one in town has one I can get my hands on.
