    Need a new scope due to an unfortunate fall

    I have a Leupold VX-II but I really messed it up so I need a new scope. I really like the scope but wanting to get some opinions about some of the other scope options out there. Have a 300 win mag. Live in Wyoming.

    Send it to Leupold and they will send you a new one no matter how messed up yours is. They don't even care HOW it got messed up.

    Yup - leave it to a great Oregon manufacturer to give the best warranty possible

    I have a Rem 300 UM and am upgrading the factory fitted scope to this Leupold http://www.leupold.com/hunting-and-s...5-14x50mm-cds/

    I have a VX-II on my 7-08 and have been very pleased with it. Leupold has a great warranty with fast turn around time. Unfortunately when you leave your green ring binos on the top of your car and they fall off and basically explode you do not get new binos from their warranty program. They did take very good care of me in that situation though.

    I didn't realize that about the warranty. I guess that will teach me to read the fine print better. Thanks to all. I was looking at the VX-3 but if I don't have to spend any money to get my scope back.. Well you can't beat that and consider me a Leupold customer for life.

    I don't agree with Leupold having the best warranty but they should fix it, although I have heard differently from different people.

    Won't know 'til you try, so I suggest trying.

    Edit: But to give you an option for another scope, I would suggest you look at Zeiss.

    You gotta love Leupold! I surprised it broke! I have a VX II on a .243. I rolled my atv over the top of it and the thing was still on!

    I hope the warranty works out, but it may not. Leupold charged me to fix some scratched lenses on some GR binoculars a few years ago. They were scratched after the covers came off during a belly crawl. The price to fix was reasonable, however, and they sent me a brand new pair.

    If you do look at other scopes. Vortex Viper and Zeiss Conquest are excellent scopes with great warranties. I am 100% sure Vortex would replace one of their scopes damaged in the manner you describe.
