Im not sure we can realy blame the vendor in the case of the PSTs but Im not in your shoes. In fact I cancled my orders months ago and got the new leupold. I dont know what you paid for your scope so hear goes some random ideas.
I tell everyone how happy I am with my 500$ Horus Hawk top of the line optic that gets my 300 wsm
to just about 1k and all their scopes are FFP
If your MIL/LE send me a pm and I will give you some advice with Leupold
Buy a used scope there are NF abound on this page and used is still new to you
