Re: Putting Nikon lifetime warranty to the test

Good deal. Nice to see the fast return for you..sakofan..

Not many people have had to return stuff to them that I know of.You and a friend of a friend dropped his rifle from a tree stand, broke the Nikon Buckmaster in half,sent it back and they replaced it..no questions asked.

Re: Putting Nikon lifetime warranty to the test

Had the Nikon Tactical 2.5-10x44 out yesterday.

The problem with the elevation was not corrected by the warranty service. Still a 3 MOA "dead spot" in each revolution of the elevation turret.

I guess from here I can try to call someone in charge and raise hell.

Ian, if you know a name/number of anyone at Nikon I should try to contact in regards to this problem, please let me know.

Never should have strayed away from Leupold.

I got this POS on a trade for a Leupy LR. What a dumbass I was.

Ian,

Thanks for your help in this matter. Nikon is very apologetic, and most interested in resolving this. They are sending me a new scope. Cannot ask for more than that.

I took the new (replacement) Nikon 2.5-10x44 Tactical for a test drive today, aboard the 30-06. This scope is functioning perfectly.
