In the past year, I've purchased two Bushnell 4200 3-9x40mm scopes just due to the price, Rainguard AND the recommendations from this forum.
I had a 30-06 ruin two cheap Bushnell scopes years ago and I swore I'd never own another Bushnell product, but at that time I didn't know anything about scopes and my Dad's mindset was the cheaper the better, so as a kid the only scopes I were exposed to were cheap Bushnell Sportviews and old Redfields, Tascos and Weavers. As I stated in another thread, fortunately "I know better now."
I have never sent anything to Bushnell for repair, so I can't comment on that, but I have call and emailed their customer service department several times while researching the older Bushnell Elite 10x43mm binoculars; They were always polite, courteous and responded in a timely manner....again, YMMV.
