    After looking at your pic, its clear to me you have no idea what your doing when it comes to mounting a scope LOL, In all honesty i also have multiple Leupold scopes and have no issue with them but..........when i built my nob twister and needed a scope with bullet proof tracking and repeat-ability I went Nightforce and haven't looked back. Leupold's customer service and warranty is awesome but it's something i hope to not use that often....

    Between my brother and myself, since the mid-70's, we probably have 20 ish Leupolds, one issue. One bought around 1976 had an eye piece issue around 1999. Great products.

    Binoculars, rings, scope. You have bad luck with Leupold stuff.

    I have had a dozen scopes, probably ten sets of rings, spotter, binoculars, many used and not one problem.


    I bought the scope online. I looked through it when it was on 4-6X or something like that and it was 100%. I then mounted it and turned it down to 3X and noticed the issue after the fact.

    Time to send it back. Was it new?

    ETA: I see it was. Away it goes.

    ya it was brand new. Sent it out 2 days ago. Its a Really nice scope. Low light ability is unreal.

    As soon as I get it back I can take some lessons on how to mount a scope on YouTube and then re-mount it. LOL

    Funny guy. You would be amazed how many people don't know how to properly mount a scope. Especially when it comes to bedding bases and lapping rings. "I trust my.....", is a common thought.

    Hope it all works out for you.

    Real nice, mallardsx2. Pulled out my rangefinder today to do some dry fire practice. It is totally fubar. Your thread broke my rangefinder.

    Should have kept my mouth shut about not having problems with Leupold products.

    I love Leupold scopes. They're excellent products at fair prices. I own at least five of them. My favorite is a Vari-X II 4x12x40 AO. But I like my Vari-X II 3x9x40. I own a coupla Vari-X III's and a couple VX-III's.

    I have a ~45 year-old American-Made Redfield Ranger 2x7 that has never failed me.

    Here's how I look at optics: a rifle scope must be 100% reliable. It must hold zero. It must be nitrogen sealed.

    We could easily fork out 3k for German optics. But we might look through our scopes for maybe 5 minutes a day. We might glass for hours. Hence, I'd suggest going with the best quality binos a hunter can afford. As long as scopes fulfill essential criteria, you're in money.

    My scopes, with one exception, Leupold, and my binos are German (Zeiss).

    I have no idea if this is true: I've heard Leupold has introduced foreign-made products into its line-up. Good thing I don't need another scope.

    We've hired a cpl past Leupold employees and I was told some of their models have the objective assemblies put together out of the country. That would not deter me from buying their product if I was a satisfied Leupold customer.
