had a Simmons 8 point 3-9x40 for over 2 years mounted on an NEF 30 06. went on a 400 mile trip to hunt with my son in VA. took rifle to range just for a few check shots. scope had developed about 10 inches of paralax at 100 yds and would not keep 3 shots on a 12 inch target at 100 yds.(no open sights) that will be the last time I go on a hunting trip without some back up.Well, rather than trash that Simmons, I sent it back,really did not exprct a response, SURPRISE! UPS yesterday delevered a package, a new 3-9x40 scope from Mead Instruments, Irvine, CA. now that was a low end scope,(read cheap) and Simmons replaced it after 2 years. Refreshing to find any company today with excelent customer serivice. Will serously consider Simmons high end scopes in the future.

I too have used their warrenty, with a PROHUNTER 6-24X44. my crosshairs fell/ turned and after calling, I sent the scope W/ payment for return postage around the scope and didn't hear anything for a month, so I called and was informed that they got the payment, but no scope(after 5hrs. on the phone and tracking down from usps who sighned for it) They finallysaid that they would send a "NEW" scope to me the following day. A week later, I had no scope and called back... I had to go through the same thing all over again. This time I asked why they charged me $10.00 for shipping when I mailed it to them next day air W/ signature and insured it for $600.00 for only $9.40. I was told it wastheir rules.       Now it's 3-4months later and the old returned scope from someone else that they sent me, moves 1-3inches for every 1/8inch click I turn it (depending on what the scope feels like at that time) and will not hold zero.....Here goes another month, maybe I should buy a differ. scope tommorrow when I get done mailing MEAD back their simmons!!?

Good customer service is always good to hear about. IMHO- I would not have anything to do with any Meade products today.............

This is un-bloody-believable!!!   Moral of the story: Do Not Buy anything that says Simmons on it.   Pass it on to other talk forums until Simmons is defunct.  Dead  
 
We need to start a TRASH BIN category on this forum!  Everytime ANYTHING breaks report it here---and totally boycott it FOREVER!!!   Maybe THAT will get someone's butt moving to FIX THIS CRAP!!!!   Cussing  UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
 
How HARD is it to make a RIFLESCOPE!!!! For God's sake!!!!!Cussing
 
( although I have to admit that the Simmons 8 Point is already BELOW SEA LEVEL when it was new!!!  I mean, what do they cost -----$ 11.99?????   COME ON, FOLKS!!!! Get a Charmin toilet paper tube, you damn gringos!!! Bandito
