Hate to just jump in, it's that I have had a bad experience, culminating today, with Onalaska Operations. They are the repair center for Weaver Scopes. They kept my scope for 3 months or so and sent it back unaltered. Said it was fine. Well, golly, I sent a perfectly good scope to the manufacturer because it worked right? Thank goodness it is the only Weaver I have.
Anyone else?

Welcome to the O.T. , Kunger. What part of Alabama are you from ? I don't have ant experience with Weaver or their c.s. dept, but I'm sure someone will give you feedback soon.

Whoa, Let's back up a bit! What sort of set up do you have? What sent to to Weaver service in the first place?  How did you deside that there was a problem?  What trouble shooting steps did you take?  How did you write it up?

Yes Kunger, WELCOME.
I too would like to know what were the problems and how were they described.

Hi ya'll (local color)
 
Well I'm from Slapout - yes, real name. I live on Lake Jordan.
 
The deal is this, I received a Weaver 1-3 scope in a trade. I thought it would be a good scope for a .375 HH. It was a 'to boot' deal. Several days later, I look through it and it 'waffles' the magnification - such as it is. I wrote Weaver and told them the problem and that I knew there would be no warranty. I just wanted to fix it. Money was not a big deal. They redirected me to Onalaska, they kept it all Summer; Onalaska sent it to me today saying it was fine as is. It is not.

Thanks to all for the comments.
 
In reality I'm not an embittered shooter - I've just gotten used to Leupold. I hope I chat with all of you in the future. I am redoing a Swede right now. The recoil is slight - I hope it stays that way when all comes together.
