Have any of you had to use Nikon's warranty, what have you heard, how was their service, and were you impressed?


I have a Nikon Monarch 3x9x40 and was wondering just in case I needed it.

 I had the misfortune of dealing with Nikon about a year ago. I purchased a new 3x9 Monarch, mounted it on my Weatherby 30-06 of known accuracy , and was off to the range. Within the first box of ammo, the rounds began stringing back and forth horizontally. I sent it to Nikon , and within  a couple of  weeks  I received a bill for $169. to repair the scope that I had owned for only 3 weeks. It took several calls and 3 e-mails to get any contact back ( took 8 calendar days for a response ). Ed from Nikon said they would handle it, and it would take about a month to get it back. It did, and besides some new scratches, so far no other problems. ....In asking around, it seems that that the manufacturing base has left Japan, and along with it apparently so has some of the quality ( and maybe even some of the service).
