Well it beats spots of liquid on the inside of the Premier and the second replacement scope had a black fleck in it and the 5-25 was a POS too. for reasons I don't even want to discuss.

I only spent $1000 and my tactical scope has worked wonderfly. No specs on the glass, no drops of grease, it tracks true and the glass is great.

Before things get out of control here. Every scope manufacturer has its fair share of lemons I recently had one myself and the company backed up their product wonderfully.

No company is immune to putting out faulty products... it is how they treat the customer is what matters.

Yea but man the "scope gods" must have it in for me you guys have no idea how frustrated I am. with the larger $$ amount products you would think the QC would be VERY tight and some of the things I have seen on these examples there is just NO EXCUSE FOR!!  Example: Premier Light tactical with water or oil droplets all over the inside and the illumination didn't work. The NEW replacement they sent me had black dirt on the reticle.  The first Leupold with a canted reticle NO EXCUSE!! how hard is it to get a reticle in straight?  The second Leupold was so blurry I had no idea why.
JUST RIDICULOUS! so I'm the troll!!!??

And, there is that too. The last place I bought a scope from has a good reputation and still lemons make their through. I decided to send the scope right back to the manufacturer as suggested by the retailer... glad I did the CS was prompt was almost free(shipping) very pleased with the whole thing.

I still have a bit of problem with online shopping because of the shipping... I swear UPS use packages for tire stops sometimes. It is amazing how beat up some items can get??

Please explain your method for checking for a canted reticle.

Thanks.

If you didn't have bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck at all.  How much you selling the Premiers for?

Really??? In your post you said it too was canted not blurry. First it was canted now it is blurry. So what was it.

Your post 6/02/12 at 21:19
HOLY HELL!!!!!!!!!!  I got another scope in today and WOW I can't get over how bad Leupold has gotten!  ANOTHER F'n canted reticle!!  At this point I think I will get my $900 back and buy an IOR. Granted the IOR is twice as much but I hope I get what I pay for.  If OP dosent return all my money I will deff splatter their name all over the internet.
