This is unreal! After firing two rounds of .223, a black fleck mysteriously appeared in the middle of the sight picture.  Man I am really starting to loath Premier at this point.

Bang it on a phone book. That helps get them off sometimes. I have had a number of scopes do this. A good whack or two on a phone book many times will get it off

Yes. Had the same problem with a USO SN3.

So, did you contact Premier first this time? Or bash them on the internet first like last time...

I know you spent a lot of money on the scope. But things happen, and trashing the manufacture before contacting them about an issue...I don't get it.

NcStar is so cloudy you can't see the spots. Or what did you say about not needing bifocals.

Yes Paul Lange said to whack it with a phone book.  His words were "we put grease in the tube to catch the pieces of anodization that fall off the tube" Boy this is just UFB!!

It is common with all scopes.  I have had Meotpa, 2 IORs, a Bushnell and my Leupold do that.  Seriously a whack or two will get rid of it.  The only one that it did not work on was my Meopta.  I ended up sending that one back.

I have read of Hensodts, S&B, USOs, Premier, and many others that have had that problem.

What a piece of garbage, I'll take it off your hands for $100.


Scopes with anodized tubes do this, all of them.


I'm beginning to think Counter Sniper might be the scope for you.

Did you get the 5-25 Premier?  Has it failed or disappointed you yet?

I'll give you $200 for it, and promise not to tell anyone who I got it from.
