I am sort of brand specific and want all my stuff the same. Why. I don't know but that's how I am. What are my choices
First off, almost all scopes have some parts made in China or some other country irregardless
of what they say so just the fact that they all have some affiliation irritates me to but what
are you going to do if you cant spend 3 or 4 thousands dollars for a scope.
As I have said many times Leupold scopes have allways been a good investment and I personally
have never had one let me down.
I for one will continue to use Leupold scopes until the quality goes down and/or the price goes
up to much for what you get.
There are cheaper scopes and more expensive ones than the Leupold's and for the money they
are hard to beat.
There are scopes that I have tried and hated and most have failed at the worst time. so even if
I do have a Leupold fail it will still be less than 1% of the leupold's I have bough. some of the
other scopes have a 100 % fail rate( 3 of these brands failed 2 or 3 times before I got the
message and stopped buying them).
It does not matter what other say about a scope it's what you like that counts.
Buy what you want and be happy.
