Well I have avoided buying out really trying any for years! But I currently have one on order we are going to try for my 7mag with the cds dial! I've always been way too tight or broke to spend that much on a scope! I've seen what I thought was good quality cheaper but I have a feeling I'm about to start a bad addiction lol

I will not have anything other than a leupold! They sent me a new scope over something that was my fault no questions asked, i have never needed their warranty on anything other than what was my fault, my buddies cant say the sane with their crappy vortex junk!

I agree with EWC, almost every Leupold I own the adjustments suck...but once set they seem to hold. I have a few 6x42's LRD that I like for hunting afternoons as I can see way beyond legal shooting hours.

Same here. Great scopes but I better not drop em. My wife got me my first Leupold for Christmas, just a compact low power from their Freedom line for my Marlin so I think they'll be ok 😂

Love Leupold and old Redfields. Only scopes I have on my rifles. I bought a Nikon Monarch for my Encore ML years ago...it was super clear until it fogged up. I sent it back to Nikon in a Leupold box.

Bought a rifle from a member here a little while back had a Leupold VX-III-1.75-6x32 on it, you needed a set of Vise Grips to turn the power selector up or down so I boxed it up sent it back to Leupold, just got an email from Leupold .

Dear Loyal Leupold Customer
Upon inspection of your product , we have determined that it is in need of replacement under warranty. We will be sending you a "VX-3HD 2.5-8x36 CDS-ZL Duplex" as your warranty replacement.

This is why I been shooting Leupold for a little over 50 years. I had one other issue with a Leupold in all these years that was took care of promptly. Not here to say they are the best, but they have suited me for a lot of years and I own several.
Similar stories I have heard about their CS. Brother had one replaced. Very good scopes and warranty!

They said they would start building more VX-3HD 2.5-8x36 in January and I would be getting one of the first ones. True to there word, 2nd day of Feb and UPS just delivered it.

I can't and won't buy a product that doesn't work. Leupold will not hold zero and its adjustments suck. Move two clicks expecting 1/2" and you might get 1/4"- 5/8" off movement.

I still have plenty, but that's my experience with Leupold. I run nightforce nowadays.
I own over 2 dozen Leupold scopes not one time have I had any trouble out of them you click it twice and I will bet my life it will move a half inch at 100. I can't attest to the warranty because I have never had to use it. My primary rifle had a Leupold on it for 25 years before I upgraded and every year the zero never moved from numerous flights to being dropped 30 foot from a tree stand. I did own a Nikon once it was thrown in the trash. I have a Swarovski on my backup and have no problem with it.
