    I've never needed to use the warranty on any scope. Bought a lot of Nikon scopes years ago based on my use of Nikon cameras. Sold off most of them except the ones in their Monarch line. Have moved on to Leupold and Vortex. Their quality is much better than any of the Nikon scope I currently own. The Razor scopes I have are the best glass. Great glass but heavy.

    Yeah warranties are generally considered a marketing expense...the function is to get people to consider you as a brand.

    Hyundai automobiles’ sales jumped over 80% the year after they enacted the 10/100k warranty, unheard-of at the time.

    Their cars had turned the quality corner several years before, but it took the warranty to get people to buy them.

    I’ve had to use Vortex’s warranty on every single scope I’ve bought.

    Most of it was due to scope flare issues that never went away and one with broken erectors. I quit buying Vortex scopes and problems solved.

    That reticle sure is a lot less busy than the other one.

    I was hoping PA would have some of their red dots on sale for BF, or maybe some blems. Saw the other one and am thinking about it. Obviously it won’t compete with my ACOG but at $120 it’s worth a shot.

    Yea. Looks like a knock off of the Burris scope.

    There are many prism scopes in that configuration, but not with the ACSS reticle.
