    recently a leupod based premier scope broke the reticle and need to know when/where to send it to get it fixed, do you know where/who to talk to to get it fixed.

    it is a 18-40X40 vari XIII efr...

    I know leupold will not fix it, so what are my chances to get it fixed...?

    you could try calling premier @540 868 2004. they no longer do leupold scopes, but a call wouldnt hurt. also try t.k.lee, www.scopedot.com. theve been around many years, and will do a variety of makes. 205 913 5222

    Premier said they would honor any scopes they had converted when they severed their relation with Leupold. Call them.

    Was it a premier reticle that broke?

    Leupold will fix it. They'll charge you and it won't return with Premier mods.

    that is indeed good news for those of us who own and use scopes with their reticles. i had met chrises father dick quite a number of years back while hunting deer in pa. he was a guest at a camp of other long range hunters. we found a buck at about 750 yds. i got lined up on him and was about to shoot, when he dropped and slid down the hill. about then i heard the shot. turned out to be dick thomas. he was on a lookout not far from us. i knew the group he was with, and that evening we visited them, and i was introduced to dick. at that time he was located in west virginia, and even then, he had built some scopes. they had very large objective lenses. in fact larry, the camp owner he was staying with, had been using one. chris is the third generation, folowing dick sr. and jr. just a little trivia i thought id pass along.

    Re: premier scopes... Cost?

    Their web site was showing about $2900. Ouch! Probably a very nice scope if Premier is making them.

    Let's see what Mike says though.
