well my Simmons shotgun scope is waiting on parts but the bushnell scope they said it would cost atleast 69.00 dollars to fix it and i said it's not worth that. so i'm looking now for a used nikon or leupold scope to mount o my 30-06 for this season.

well called and talked to Bushnell about my scope that wasn't repairable and they offered me a other scope because the one that wasn't repairable was discontinued. So they offered me a other 3x9x40 scope for 56.82 with shipping and everything.

what would you all do replace this scope or just upgrade it to a better name scope?

I'm not trying to tell you what to do, but there's no way that I would pay them to fix a scope that should be covered by a lifetime warranty.

It sounds like their customer service is getting worse all the time. I've already stopped buying Bushnell and Tasco. I've seen lately where folks were having trouble with Nikon customer services as well. I've never had to send in a Nikon, so I can't speak from experience.

Personally, I will still purchase Leupold, American made Burris, or Nikon. I'm not crazy about the new Burris in my price range. I may grab a Simmons Whitetail Classic for a rimfire.

I've heard great things about Minox and Zeiss, but they're a little out of my price range.

I hope things work out for you.

yeah i called today and they told me that they can't fix the scope i sent them. so they offered me a newer model scope for about 59.00 bucks today and i might go ahead and get the new scope just to put on a rim fire or something.I'm looking now for a nikon or leupold scope to replace the one that went on my 30-06.

So if anyone knows anyone that wants to sell one or whatever please let me know.

Is the newer model an elite series?

I'd say it's a Trophy or Trophy XLT for $59. If it's a Trophy XLT I'd give $59 for it. I've got one on a ML that's pretty much on par with a Nikon Prostaff.

dh1984, how much are you looking to spend on a new scope?
