Hi everyone I am thinking about buying a new or used Nikon Monarch riflescope.  Problem is I am not sure what they mean by Full Lifetime Warranty?  Is this the full lifetime of the scope or the full lifetime of the orginal owner.  If I buy one that is used does that scope have the same warranty as a new one. 


Thanks

I pulled a warranty card out of a box and it says that Nikon will repair or replace a scope found to have defects in materials or workmanship. "Even if you are not the original owner. No time limit applies and no warranty card is required."

Thanks Carl for your response, I was hoping to hear some positive news about Nikon's warranty.  I sorta felt that they would back their product like most of their competitors, but some of these warranties like limited lifetime can be little confusing for me.  Anyway thanks again for making it clearer.

The title of this post qualifies as an oxymoron.

 I recently purchased a Nikon Monarch 3x9, and installed it on a 30-06 Wby stainless on known accuracy. The impacts would wander left to right. I sent it to NIkon and was forwarded a bill for $170 to repair the scope, even though I had bought it weeks earlier. I contacted Nikon through their website on several occasions to figure why I was being charged for the repair. It took 3 messages and a phone call before "Ed" from tech support emailed me back to indicate it would be covered..this whole process took weeks and simply was unsatisfactory. I've also noticed a quality drop-off  in their scopes since their manufacturing base has moved to the Phillipines.
