Just got my new Premier Light Tactical 3-15x50 and right out of the XXXXXX box the XXXX illumination flickers all wacked out.. then I can jiggle the knob and it will work intermittently.. The glass is incredible but XXX a BRAND NEW 2400 scope out of the box.. IM REALLY PISSED!!
now I have to wait another week or so... jesus am I ever gonna get to shoot my rifle?

Realize your upset, but what's up with all the bad language? This is a "G" rated, family show, Gappa. 

Thank goodness for the old potty mouth filter.

Come on bro, it happens.  I had bought a $2400 pair of Leica binos that had a problem and I had to send them back. Leica was wonderful.  That is what customer service is for.  Give them a chance to make it right before post it all over the internet.  I am sure Premier will make it right.

Who did you purchase the scope from? They may be able to help have you mounted it already?

Man, I understand your feeling there Gappa. It sucks like a Hoover when you get that black cloud over you and it just won't go away. At least you know your seller will make it right. Might give you time to get some good karma broHippie

I found something very strange here upon further examination.  Sometimes the illumination will flash like some red dot sights do when the rheostat is in the middle of the adjustment range... Very strange..
I do realize the illumination should go on and off every other click of the rheostat but sometimes the reticle will light in the middle of the clicks..

I've had bad experince with them too, bought a monarch brand new, but the product received had signs of previous use
Had to return it and never dealt with them ever since.
Deal with SWFA!

First thing I would consider is replace the battery.  Just an outside chance but someone could have looked at it before it shipped and left a battery turned on and ran down the battery.  If so it might not be any worse than putting in a new battery and you are up an running.  Just on general principals I would only buy from SWFA but  I have had really good customer service from them.

Dang, and I was going to edit that, too... but UIF was editing it while I was trying to edit it, so it got edited before my edits were edited in... perhaps I should have waited to try to edit and my edits would not have been a wasted edit...

Well guys don't you think I already tried to swap the battery.. I even used my voltmeter to check the one that was in it and it had 3.3volts so I would say the battery is good.

OK - I know Ive had a couple of illuminated scopes that were quirky one I had to put a small piece of rubber in against the  battery to keep it in position and then there have been some issues with tritium pills that were defective so I feel your pain.  Sometimes it takes longer than we would like to get systems up and running right that is just part of it. Good Luck.

I understand, spending that type of cash... a positive outlook from here on out is pretty much impossible no matter the service.

I think members of this forum should know where not to buy.

As far as reading the rules,
it is not even relevant to the issue at hand.
And if you say it is relevant then we are all in trouble b/c it would indicate that this forum rules preempts the US constitution AM II.
thus it's irrelevant whether or not one read the rules, my question as why editing?
