Re: bought a nightforce but got a bushnell

I went over to his house today and checked out this expensive bushnell scope, it took us a while to figure out which scope it was but we eventualy discovered it is a bushnell banner 3-9x40 with a illuminated bdc reticle. He is waiting to hear back from cabelas, I sure hope they take care of him cause he is a realy good dude and deserves a break.

Re: bought a nightforce but got a bushnell

It is not exactly " Thankyou for your service " is it ?
Keep us advised of what is going on because if they don't replace it we can all chime in with some pressure .
A Bushnell banner ! for a Nightforce , F*ck I would be angry .
That scope is only worth about $100 .
How could anyone make that mistake ?
I was considering buying a Vortex PST by mail from Cabelas new shop over here but now this has put me right off a mail delivery .

There's something fishy about the whole thing. I'm not so sure "mistake" will explain it.

Looks like he is stuck with the bushnell, Cabelas said there is nothing they can do to help him.

Re: bought a nightforce but got a bushnell

When you buy something over the gun counter, they take it out of the box so you can see it. Even if the purchaser (his wife) didn't see anything wrong, the salesperson would have caught it. I think if it were me, I'd file a police report. Someone pulled a switcharoo to the tune of $1700 and I believe that makes it a felony. I wouldn't be to quick to blame the store.
