The short answer to so many scopes that suck is that many people want to buy them. I worked the gun counter at Academy for about a year after I retired. I remember a guy coming in with a $700 rifle and wanting to put a $50 Simmons on it.

The SHV with a Forceplex?



I consider the SHV 3-10X42 w/Forceplex as one of the most versatile scopes for Whitetail hunting in areas where shots can vary from muzzle to way-out-yonder. Throw in rugged use if ya want to, no problem for the scope.

I’m stull wondering how many scopes “puke” due to overtightend rings, misaligned bases/receivers, and other stupid schit.

Well, as I mentioned in another thread I puked a Burris Veracity this year.

Got an email today from Burris saying they were replacing it as it was non-repairable. How f’d up does a scope need to be for them not to be able to fix it?

If it takes a guy three hours to fix it and his labor cost is more that 40% of their oem cost, and the successful repair is in anyway questionable. The math is on the side of the consumer.
Gotta figure they probably only cost 320$ to make.

I’ve had three scopes from two different manufacturers end up with either parts rattling around inside or objects in the field of view. In each case the scopes were replaced. Actually that rifle has eaten four scopes. The fourth just started pointing the reticle in random directions resulting in ever increasing group sizes. That one was frustrating because starting off so subtle it took a while to diagnose. Edit: that scope was just repaired; new erector system.

Yeah it was a disaster. Not much confidence in the replacement.

I'll be sending a XTRII to Burris soon. The only thing wrong with it, is the illuminated reticle quit/don't work. Here's to hoping they replace it with a XTRIII......

They told me an old scope was not repairable and it just needed a cleaning. I regretfully agreed to take their replacement scope.
