Re: NXS Customer Service Tops


I am very glad to hear that it is in good working order!! It was ALWAYS a perfect performer for me. As you could see from all the battle damage you know what it went through and still never missed a beat. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: NXS Customer Service Tops

The main variables I see here are...

Quality control - Sounds like a S&B or USO has tighter QC...probably easier to do as they don't produce as many scopes. This is where the reliability issue comes into play.

Seeing better - First of all everyone's eyes are different. I gotta wonder how many people have adjusted their eyes to each scope and then compared. Not many...would be my guess. Next the quality of each batch of glass is going to change to the next. So no two scopes of the same scope maker are going to be the same. You can reduce the variance...again QC comes into play.

So if you had someone hand pick the glass and all the parts at leupold you could probably get close to the best in the world. But that doesn't happen. What did Forest's momma always say? Life is like a box of factory scopes and rifles you never know what your going to get.

Go custom and you will.

L Wolken, the 10 year garantie is a product of German and EU trade laws, and nothing to do with S&B wanting to shorten any coverage, The cannot,legaly offer a 30 year or life time warranty as it would be against trade regulations. take it from me, the scopes are covered for a life time for any mechanical failure or problem not caused by the user.
Ian M you need your eyes tested buddy. now cars and scopes are a different matter, i drive a jap rice cooker my self, a mitsubishi. and i'd chose a lexus over a merc or BMW any day ( exept maybe the merc g wagon)
POI shift, you wouldn't belive it, but in every conversation to do with an NXS the subject of POI shift crops up and its happening to a lot of scopes.
I knopw that ain't gonna happen 9999 out of 10000 with S&B.
Hunting season, i was out last weekend and got wet through and now ive a stinking cold,, was out duck shooting yesterday. also,, going to Scotland next saturday,,
busy !!
regards Pete

Its nice to hear good customer service at last having known simple repairs take in excess of 20 months some years ago, things must have changed for the better.

Re: NXS Customer Service Tops

Are you really going to Scotland next Saturday or are you secretly going searching for your very wet satalite, [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

What happened, were you reading a copy of the latest S&B test when you should have been tracking it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Are they going to deduct the cost out of your wages? Thats gonna take a long time. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Ooh, and dont forget your glass bottomed boat! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: NXS Customer Service Tops

See what happens when i take a couple of weeks off work !! the s%$t hits the fan, or the sat' hits the drink. I hope they have a spare, other wise its jobs on the line for that whole team.
i'm at home looking after the wife who is just recovering from little operation. and building a bunch of rifles and i stripped and cleaned the lathe gear box today, and yes i'm off to jockland on saturday, stalking roe deer.. a glass bottomed boat would be a good idea, hide underit, out the way of the rain..
