my sling swivel let loose and i dropped my rifle and dented the objective on my truck gun scope. it is a VXIII 2.5x8 leupold
its holding zero for sure i fired about 10 rounds and tapped it hard every which way which my palm and knife and it hasnt budged zero a bit it hasnt fogged up or anything.
i sure hate to send it in and be without for awhile as i use this gun 24/7/365 in my truck on the ranch and its literally an extension of my hands if you know what i mean.

wonder what they charge for that repair and if its even worth it?

I'm with ccoker, if it's holding zero I'd run it until it doesn't. That's the very definition of truck gun, IMO. It's going to get beat just by the environ it lives in.

On the few occasions I have had to send something in to leupold, I have experienced excellent customer service.

I'd send it in to them and see what happens; and what's the worst that could happen? - they send it back or they give you a price to fix/refurbish it.

I donít think Leupold deserved that comment. Iíve used them for decades and have only had one fail. A VX2 6-18 had to be sent back for repair. They fixed it and sent it right back. And I sent an old Vari-X III back for a new reticle, and they did as I asked but also rebuilt the scope internals. That impressed me.

Now I have an old fixed 6 power I bought used back in the late 70ís (I think). Sold it to my brother in the 90ís and he gave it back to me (scope swap) last year. I need to send it in for service.

Their scope hold up under long use (they have for me) and the warranty and warranty service is outstanding.

You're probably correct, I may have been a little hard. My biggest complaint is that they haven't keep up with the times and I believe there are now better options out there.

You may be right about keeping up with the times. All of my Leupold scopes are Ďset and forgetí and not turreted. Iíve heard some complaints about the durability of the turreted Leupolds. You can bet that Leupold is working to fix the problem and the perception. I have a couple of turreted Vortex scopes now, and I like them a lot. No problems so far. I think the glass in the Leupolds is better.

im always shopping for rifles but i dont think its possible to injure this rifle! ive tried over the years closest ive came is getting a piece of paracord with a knot wedged in the barrel trying to clear an obstruction in the field but i heated up a brass rod and melted it out

I have about 15 Leupy's. I love em. To the guy who said he buys better scopes....not everyone is country club material. Some of us like seeing made in America on the things we cherish.

Leupold is awesome.
My daughter's 243 fell from the blind 15ft and landed on her VX2 6-18, it broke into two pieces and parts were all over. We gathered them up and sent then to Leupold to see if repair was cheaper than a new scope. Two weeks later we got a brand new scope in the mail, no charge.
