I want to know what REFURBISHED means exactly on these scopes. Some Conquest scopes say "RING MARKS" some say "CLOSE TO NEW CONDITION" while all say refurbished. When these scopes are REFURBISHED   does that mean that they just fixed the problem that they were sent back for or does it mean they fixed it and rechecked all the other functions of the scope too? Since some say RING MARKS I know they dont refinish the outer tube but I guess my biggest concern is the lenses and coatings. Since these are used scopes, Will the lenses have scuffs, scratches or cleaning swirl marks left by the original user or will they be recoated and re-polished and look like brand new scopes? If the lenses are re-done, then it would seem like this is a better deal than getting a new one because it has been individually checked for functionality where as new ones I would think are checked randomly. I dont know ... does anyone out there know? Does anyone out there have any of the SAMPLE LIST CONQUEST that can respond to my questions? THANKS

I buy Conquest refurbs with regularity and have always been very pleased.  They might have ring marks but the mechanics are always sound (in my experience) and the lifetime warranty applies.


A great deal on a great scope.
