The vortex warrenty is the best in the biz. For the money I don't think you can bet this scope.
Vortex's warranty is the same as Leupold, Nightforce, Swaro, Zeiss, S&B and I believe Huskemaw, those I'm familiar with. Warranted for as long as own the optic against failure and transferrable to the next owner if there is one...
I had a personal experience with Leupold, the scope would not hold zero. I returned it to Leupold and Stevens, the sent me a newer model and paid my shipping out...and back on a 7 day turnaround, plus calling them, you get to talk to someone without a heavy arabic accent.......
(try that with your credit card company sometime....)
I just bought a Vortex so I compared warranty. It's the same. I believe all manufacturers of good optics stand behing their products.
