Refurbs have a 6 month warranty from Nikon, I believe.

Close... They will have a 90 day warranty.

When buying from an individual, is there a way to tell the diff. between a Full Warranty Nikon and a refurb that's probably past the 90 day warranty?

Is the silence to be taken as there is no way to tell the difference and it's "buyer beware" when looking at second hand Nikons?

I was more wondering if Nikon could tell?   My guess is they put something on the inside of the scope to alert their techs that its a refurb.  And someone sending it in to get work might not know until Nikon tells them.

I *wish* the Nikon rep that hangs out here from time to time could come in and elaborate on the refurb warranty and the CS dept that has really gotten some bad reviews over the years.

 

Waylan??  Waylan??
