I always read how fast it is.
I sent back a Redfield spotting scope that stopped focusing. Just got an email back saying allow 5 weeks. That just a standard email or will it really take that long?

I think that is a standard response email. I got that or a similar one for a scope I sent in couple months ago. Had a new replacement within three weeks.

I have had one come back in 3 weeks and I have had one come back over 10 weeks. That was before covid. Probably a roll of the dice now.

I just got the same '5' week response to one I sent in. Guess we'll see. First time I've ever had to send one back.

Last time I sent something in, I got a similar email, but it was faster than that

Back when I used and had Leupold's usually under 2 months.....if your using anything more powerful than a 243 just remember with a Leupold your next shot might be its last accurate one.....

Well, they are sending me a replacement. SX-2 Alpine HD 20-60x60mm Angled. Anyone know anything about them? Mine had a little stand, hope this comes with one.

I guess I'm behind the times. I thought Leupold issued a statement saying they wouldn't work on Redfield since they were discontinued???

IMHO it took something bigger than a .243 to get em to settle.

Varmint cartridges had one tapping turrets when zeroing.

Have sent 4 back for warranty and the last two were quoted at 5 weeks. Got em back a week or so before that.

No probs after

I sent in a scope one time the new replacment scope showed up in 3 days. I lived in Washington at the time the 4 th day I got a card in the mail saying they have received the scope and will evaluate if if it’s covered under warranty
I always found that funny
Used there warranty several times they are fast

I sent a scope in for service about 10 days ago, took 3-4 days after they received it to send the email that it would be 5-6 weeks, next day they sent email showing they are shipping a replacement. Guess im getting a new vx3hd cds zl in 2.5-8. Think it may be too short to mount on my 77 hawkeye whelen, so it’ll prolly show up in the classifieds.
