Leupold Scopes tanking in Quality

I have talked to several dealers dropping them because of returns. What is up with Leupold?

I used to love their stuff but are hesitant on ordering a new one because of what I am hearing.... Anyone else hearing this?

Would like to know the dealers and what problems they are having with the optics, If the scope fails in any way you deal with Leupold not the dealer. Sounds fishy to me.

Re: Leupold Scopes tanking in Quality

Several months ago I purchased a vx6 3x18x44. Put it on one of my 338s. Love it . It is so far above the vx3s that are on my other guns . I could not be happier.

Don't Gobble at me...

I have purchased at least 3 of the "lower end" VX1 in the last few years. No problems at all!

I doubt its a quality issue. Probably more that the dealer is having problems competing with pricing from online sellers.

Good luck, Tony

Right on, Tony... I've bought 15 or 20 in the last twelve months and not a lick of trouble with any of them...those dealers complaining are full of crap....
