Took a minute to figure it out but the parallax assembly had worked loose and fell into the scope body. Sound like a kids rattle toy. Game over. No elk. Next days with back up gun yield zero..
Got home and googled this issue and low and behold found another fellow who had the same problem last year with his new scope...Could have been on this forum dont remember.
That is why I am leery...
Darn. Sorry to hear your hunt got ruined. glad you sold the scope, seems like all this misfortune has you out on top, you bought a $900 scope and sold a replacement for $2300, so you made a clean profit of $1,400.00
I would love to buy a conquest and have it break and get a high end Zeiss back.
sounds like a dream come true.
I guarantee Leupold or Night-force etc would NEVER send you a replacement scope 2.5x the value back to you because a scope ruined your hunt.
It would be equal value and you eat the loss of your ruined hunt at best.
