I have a SS 20 power that I picked up second hand a long time ago (about 2-3 years).  At the time it was perfect but that changed when I put it on my 50 bmg.  Within 20 rounds I noticed glass flecks floating around in the ocular lens.  I know it was due to the recoil of the 50 bmg and was not an existing problem.

I sent it off to bushnell for repairs and they said the glass flecks were due to me bending the body as evident from the scope ring marks.  I said it was a bunch of crap as the glass flecks are in the ocular lens unit and not the entire body of the scope hence I didn't buy their story (of course I said it nicely)

Anyways they said it can't be repaired and to buy a new one.  Am I pretty much forced to buy a new scope?  Is this scope pretty much trashed?

What are your suggestions SWFA?

I want to say THANK YOU SWFA.  You guys replaced my scope and even allowed me to upgrade to the SS side focus model.

You guys are awesome.
