Also love my Kahles, Zeiss, Simmons, Tasco, & Nitrex scopes. The Kahles has the clearest sharpest glass. But the Zeiss scopes are my favorite all-around for hunting & target shooting.
My next scope will be a Vortex Viper HS Long Range FFP 6-24x50. Figured I've tried most of the common brands out there, why not give the Vortex a shot.
Yes, many if not most of the companies have good to superior warranties.
I went through this process because my funds are limited and wanted to spend my money wisely.
I did end up buying the Diamondback 3-9x40 Riflescope with the Dead-Hold BDC Reticle
I know most other, more high quality scopes would be better and carry the same warranty but, like I said I'm on a low-income budget and this is my first time hunting. The sales person said for my usage and budget, this scope would be my best bet.
I believe the most important aspect of any warranty, even if it says LIFETIME is whether it is Transferable to a potential secondary buyer.
Scanning through the whole list I presented, I believe there are only 4 companies which state TRANSFERABLE. That means when I am ready to upgrade, the resale value will stand up because the warranty is transferable to the new owner, no questions asked.
I believe that is an important point for those buying a used scope.
At least it would be for me. Even with that said, some companies say you must include the sales receipt when selling to another person.
Who keeps a sales receipt for 5-10-15 years ?
