Re: unhappy with leupold warranty

Maybe I'm a little dense? What did they do after all this persistant effort? Did they fix your scope or give you a replacement.

I don't remember exactly when I bought my first Leupold, but it was in the sixties? I still have a straight 7.5X. Been on a lot of different guns and I have no intention of getting rid of it. Have only returned a scope to Leupold once and that was one that I had sold, and I suspect the guy abused it? Came back fixed, so it's been over three decades without a problem; keep fingers crossed.

If you think Leupold Service is lacking; look around. I think they have a darned good reputation, and they have earned it.

Good hunting. LB

Re: unhappy with leupold warranty

Perseverance (called stubborness by people when they do not agree with you) will usually get you through most things.

Congratulations on outlasting them!

You might look at the SWFA "sample list". They might have what you are looking for.

Re: unhappy with leupold warranty

replaced with a vx-1(the old vari-x 11) 6% increase in brightness and twice the range of adjustment.if the old one was up to standard,which it WAS NOT.its in the mail.that scope has been a problem for a long time,with a little(alot)of effort they made it right.
