hell, maybe I'll tell a recent elk hunter to send that piece of crap in!
dude showed up with a decently dialed in Fullfield 3-9x40 with the graduated 'b&c' type reticle on a model 70 in 06
we shoot the rig to make sure everything has survived the trip. he starts just fine, but on the 3rd or 4th shot that damned thing dropped about 18" low and about 9 right...he shot again, and then again. i shot a round or two...thing was all over the place
that crappy optic had internally exploded right before our eyes!
he killed his elk with my back up ruger 77 in 7 mag with the ever straight shootin zeiss conquest on it...and that scope has pretty much been run over, dropped, kicked and otherwise mishandled for oh, close to 9 or 10 years now...
but i'll tell ol boy about this nice warranty ...maybe he can get a new one and sell it for a dime or two to help recomp the cost of that conquest he ordered
thanks for the update, i'll have him try 'er out!
