Curious. Where were you on your elk hunt? How did the scope break?

Re: Zeiss FL Diavari 4-16 x 50T rapid z 800

moab,utah. I was using a new conquest 4.5*14 over a new nosler trophy grade 300 wm. Took several months to works up some loads and settled on the partition over H4831. Took two fouling shots upon arrival, everything perfect. Third day of the hunt, started to set up on a nice elk, 400 yards and suddenly everything was blurry. 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...

I drove through there. Stayed in a hotel in fact, when I left Casper, WY on my way to Cortez back in 2004.

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.
