Re: Sighting in my New Schmidt and Bender scope

For the price of a S&B I would definatly call them, I will say this though they have a very good customer service and support team. A friend of mine has one of their scopes he was switching it to a different rifle droped it and some how it hit directley on turret and bent it just enough where it wouldn't turn they replaced it with no problem and had very quick turn around. Call em.

    What you should have ordered was a CCW turrets, which is what we Americans are used to. But you have a CW (Clock Wise) turret, which is what they are familiar with using.

    Had you not mounted it you could return it...... that is unless it comes back out of the rings looking unmounted?

    But Ya, CCW would have fixed your familiarity with turning of the turrets for you.

    I did contact Schmidt and Benderís customer service department out of Claremont, NH. I explained the issue, and the rep told me exactly that. I should have ordered CCW turrets! He was nice enough to say send the scope to him and he will see what he can do. I know it was my fault for purchasing the wrong scope in the first place, but I had ZERO clue of the issue. Since I spend $3,500, I hope the company would be nice enough to replace the scope for what I want, even though the scope as mounted and shot three times. I have my fingers crossed. I really donít want a scope that I have to think backwards before adjusting for wind.

    Schmidt and Bender ended up replacing my scope for a new CCW rotation scope. S&B's customer service department rocks! I told them the truth, (I order the wrong scope) and they replaced the scope with no questions asked. Thank you for your help.

    That's good news, and you're right, when you spend that kind of $$ you should get high end service in return. But Ya, Schmidt & Bender is a great company making excellent products that should cater to their customers.

    Good hunting!

    I have a S and B scope and can't figure why they appear to have made the adjustments exactly backwards from "normal" producers.

    Re: Sighting in my New Schmidt and Bender scope

    It's confusing when you compare wind adjustments to nightforce.You need to move the turret in the direction of the arrow (which moves in the opposition direction of the zero dash line indicator on the scope). When I see the R (right) adjustment, my mind thinks I should move the zero dashed indicator line (which lines up the turret to the zero) in the direction of the R.

    The arrow is a point of impact adjustment. Nightforce has the same point of impact arrow on their scopes but they also have the Right & Left adjustments labeled on the turret so the zero dash indicator line needs to go towards the R or L.

    Now I am confused just by talking about it lol...
