Bushnell only offers a lifetime warranty on the Elite models.  The Trophy, Legend, Banner, and Sportsman models only have a one year warranty.  If you read the information that comes with these scopes it makes one think they have a lifetime warranty.  It states that since 1986 most of their products have a lifetime warranty.  "Most", Only two of their scopes carry a lifetime warranty. Their website list exclusions for many of their other products but not rifle scopes.  The information is misleading and unethical.  I found out the hard way after I paid shipping and return shipping along with the $10 handling fee they require.  I had about $37 in the return.  The scope was an old Sportview 4-12x40 AO that they discontinued.  I know it was a cheapo scope but I wanted it fixed as it fogged.  Well to make a long story short, buyer beware and no more Bushnells for me.

I would like to love Bushnell again but can't until they change the way they conduct business.  It is not about a $50 scope, it is about taking advantage of the confidence sportsmen have in their company,  The scope would have been tossed in the trash if I would have known the truth about the warranty,  Instead I get it returned minus the $10 and a statement about their real  one year warranty.  I think the thing that turns me away from Bushnell is liar liar pants on fire.  Be honest about your warranty claims Bushnell at the time of sale......I wonder how many people have sent their scopes in just to be suckered out of the $10 handling fee they charge.  I have posted this same message on many different boards that Bushnell supports.  I wonder why we don't read any responses.  The truth is hard to argue against and dishonesty is just plain wrong.  Sorry Venting Again....
