Two week ago I sent my, B.S.A Spoting Scope back to the company because after taking it out in the hot sun, it became so sticky that you couldn't handle it. The black coating would come off on your hands and get all over everything you touched. The tec I talked with said they have had a few scopes do this. And that I could send it back, along with a, $10.00 money order and they would replace it with a 10 day turn around. That was 2 weeks ago. I called them to see what happened. The tec said he didn't know who I talked with but they have no such thing as a 10 day turn around. He said they just put it into the system the day before I called and they would have to decide weather to repair or replace it. And that it may be 3 - 4 months before I get it back. Maybe longer. This is bull@#@#. Never again will I do bussiness with this company. I know it's a cheap spoting scope, but being a disabled vet, it's all I could afford.
