That don't sound to me like a factory lifetime warranty? I hope I dont have fogging issues with my 4.5x14x44 conquest. Make me wish I would of bought a Vortex. I lost the caps on my SPARC it was totally my fault I called them told them what the deal was an offered to pay for them. The Vortex folks were insisted about me paying for these caps. When I got the package I found Vortex sent me caps for my SPARC an my Strikefire. When they pulled me up to find out if I registered the SPARC she onky mentioned the strikefire. Vortex has awsome customer service. Any of my next optics will be Vortex.

JG you mention Meopta optics can you give me a idea on how this brand is? What optics would you compare the Meopta to? I've owned Leupold, Ziess, Burris, IOR an Vortex. Today I bought the new SWFA SS 1X4 scope I plan mounting on my 18" SPR AR-15 it has a Wilson Combat barrel, LOKIE billet matched lower/upper, T
CMC 3lb trigger that on a trigger gage its set at just under 2lbs the BCG is rainier arms match nickel boron an a H3 buffer. I have my Ziess conquest mounted on it now it will split hairs at 300 yards with my hand loaded 77 grain match HPs. I've considered the Meopta line of optics buy I've never seen any reviews on them. So if you can share I'd like to know.

What country are you from?  You ignored the advice that your Conquest is fully

covered under warranty, in the USA.



He's in the USA. Almost in the middle of it.

Skylar:

I'm not sure why you chimed in as a seller.  You should be helping a guy with a

warranty issue.  Not the manufacturer.



Most retailers, SWFA included...do not have the facility to repair optics. Warranties are managed by the manufacturer. The retailer had no pull with how they are conducted.

Noted above two other mods instructed to follow up with Zeiss. I was not apart of the call, I'm not sure what was shared with the OP and what wasn't.

I suppose the "limited" in lifetime apples to the particular scope I have, I guess. I wasn't going to argue with the poor customer service people over an non issue.

I could use some suggestions on an backup.

In the mean time I need a back up any suggestions?

I suggest you write an e-mail to Zeiss customer service and point them to this thread.

Unless, there is evidence of obviosu abuse on the scope, the repair should be handles by the  warranty.

I just sent an old cheap 4x20 Compact scope to Burris for the same reason: it fogged up.  Mind you, this was a $150 scope when new and it is about 15 years old.

They had it back to me in about 15 days with a brief note that they took it apart, cleaned everything, re-centered it and re-purged it.

Needless to say, there was no additional charges of any sort.

That is not right. 

I would give them hell.

Based on the same magnification and objective size specifically there is Leupold.
 
  • Matte
  • Boone & Crockett
  • 30mm
  • Long Range
  • Side Focus
  • Xtended Twilight Lens System
  •  
  • Matte
  • Varmint Hunters
  • 30mm
  • Long Range
  • Side Focus
  • Xtended Twilight Lens System
  • A variation close to that from a budgetary standpoint would be from Mueller.

  • Matte
  • APV Plex
  • 1"
  • Adjustable Objective

    Well, they already took my money for the repair + shipping. I guess I have to look at it as water under the bridge a couple hundred bucks is not worth stressing over.

    From what I gather, how busy they are with repairs and priority of the age and model of the scope. The customer service people are just doing what the company policy dictates. I'm not going to give any poor customer service ladies "hell" over an non issue. Plus, I don't have an hour for waiting on hold again also, I am not an email person.

    Like I said, I like the scope and I am sure everything will be just fine when I get it back in February. My hunting is over for the season.

    Again, I would be grateful for some suggestions on an backup to avoid any similar headaches.

    Thanks

    The vortex looks appealing.
    Anyone have experience with them?

    Diamondback HP scopes are very new.

    I am testing the 2-8x32 version and I like enough that I will buy it from Vortex.  However, I have not tested the 4-16x42, although I expect it to be good.

    The 2-8x32 is exceptional for what it costs.

    I own a standard 3-9x40 vortex diamondback on my mini 14. I like the scope. Seems to work fine for me once the diopter was adjusted. I would not hesitate to buy another vortex especially if it is temporary. This is what i own:

    Stock # - DBK01BDC

    I am very happy with it and they offer a 4-12:

    IF it is only TEMPORARY i would throw either on my deer rifle and not worry. you may even like it and have to buy another gun for your Zeiss. I own a conquest too btw
