Gentlemen:
 
I am in dire need of some help.  After being bedridden almost two years and finally getting out to the range to shoot, disaster struck.   As I was walking down to put up a target, some "friends" looked at my rifle stood it up against the table and it somehow slid over and fell to the asphault.  It hit the scope adjustments and the tip of the barrel.  I them shot 3 rounds that didn't even hit a 2 foot target at 25 yards!  The gunsmith that had mounted it had moved so I took it to another one at the store I had purchased the gun from.  He said he was able to adjust it sideways but not up and down.  Help!  It shot 3//4 MOA on a bad day and I was working it up for 1000 yards before my shooting was stopped.  I had shot at most 100 rounds through it.  It was as near perfect as I would have ever wanted.  It is a Remington 700, bull barrel, with work done on trigger and muzzel.  I bought the E.X.O.T.I.C. Scope (-a perfect scope  I love it) and Badger rings and mount from you about 3 1/2 years ago-yes I know, the warrantee is out but I want it fixed-I don't want another scope, I want this one. Where do I go frome here?  I have the original box, packing and papers.  Thank you both in advance.

That is a major bummer man. So much for "friends" don't they realize that what you have can't be replaced or is just jealousy? My knuckles would have been very bloody, a true friend would realize he deserved it.
I am not sure that there's anything that can be done. To the best of my knowledge no one has heard anything from X.O.T.I.C. in quite a while. I'm sure everyone here wishes you the very best of luck though.

Thanks for your response and concern.  Appreciate it.  As soon as I can, I will attempt to work on it and hope to maybe correct whatever problem it may have.  Again, thanks.

Man I hate to hear that happened to you. If it had been a Super Sniper you could probably pick it up dust it off and keep shooting so you might want a 10x Super Sniper for the next scope.
