I had to send 2 back to Bushnell to have fixed. One was a Bushnell 3x9x40 and the other was a Simmons shotgun scope.

Anyway the Simmons had something internal wrong with it.where you look threw it and couldn't see nothing but blur. But the Bushnell had something wrong with the zoom on it. it wouldn't zoom out to the 9th power like it had something that had it stuck.

But anyway they told me to send them back to them and they will see if they can fix them or replace them.

Bushnell has some great customer service.

Sometimes. I sent in a Simmons Whitetail Classic (Made in Philippines) with a front objective that wouldn't adjust. They sent it back saying it was repaired. There was nothing done to it. I had to send it back a second time. They sent me another one. It had a different reticle, but I didn't really mind.

The Tasco side of their company is much worse. They will not warranty the Japanese made scopes, so usually it's not worth sending in a broken Tasco.

I hope things work out for you. I have to say they have done pretty well for me, but nothing like Leupold or Burris.

I would rather just buy a scope that doesn't have a history of breaking.

LOL i heard that but it's what came with the rifle. so the way i look at it if it works let it be until it breaks then replace it to something else \:D but anyway i'll have these two fixed and if they break again then it time to upgrade to something better.

I've got one of the Simmons Whitetail classics on a 22-250 and I like it. Pretty good optics for $100 I think.

Yes, they are. I have a couple, one in 4-12 and the other 6.5-20. They are still made in the Philippines and probably the best ones I've found for the money. I think they're basically made for midway to sell.
