RE: LEUPOLD 3X9X40 VARI-X II, SERIAL #391849
Dear Leupold Customer Service:
I have been a happy customer for many years. I own five Leupold scopes, which are two Vari-X II and three Vari-X III. Leupold scopes are my favorite because of their good quality and performance. However, I do have a major concern with this particular scope.
This Leupold 3X9X40 Vari-X II scope has been returned before to your company for a turret lock-up. Unfortunately, there is still something very wrong with it.
My shooting buddies and I have tried this scope on five different rifles and the turret dials are always way off center. Either the crosshairs are canted, the lenses are out of line or there is something else wrong with this scope. Recently, the scope looks like the vertical crosshairs are about ľ ď to the right of center and the top left area is fuzzy and the bottom right looks blacked out like looking through the edge of the lens.
The scope was sighted in at 100 yards at the current setting on my wifeís .243. The scopeís optic quality is poor. Itís like looking through the lenses at a very sharp angle. I canít even get the crosshairs leveled. For all I know, the tube may be damaged.
In conclusion, I have never been satisfied with this scope and would like to make arrangements through your department for a Leupold 3X9X40 Vari-X II replacement for my 100% customer satisfaction. I do not want this scope repaired and returned because I am tired of wasting my ammunition. This scope will be sent to your company on June 2, 2005. Thank you for your time and Iíll be in touch
P.S. I am currently having a custom gun made for long range hunting and will need a new scope for it. My number one choice is Leupoldís 4.5X14X50 LRM1 Mark 4 long range target/tactical. If a new Leupold 3X9X40 Vari-X II is sent to me, I will make arrangements with your sales department soon to purchase the 4.5X14X50 LRM1 Mark 4. My credit card is ready.
