    Default Vector Optics - opinions or experiences ?

    Good day members
    I have seen lots of advertising re Vector optics, who has an opinion or has anyone had any experience with them
    There seem to be lots of models and at low prices.
    I for one have stuck to the old adage buy as expensive as you can afford and have generally stuck to lynx, vortex etc
    I’m not looking to buy one but your opinions or experiences maybe useful to other members
    Cheers
    Gary

    Wrote about it before. Bought one off Amazon about two years ago before they became widely available here. It lasted only a few months:



    Parallax knob sheered off under recoil from a suppressed 3006. DHL'd it back to them, and received a replacement. Within days of fitting it the parallax would shift after every shot. Took it off, and it's been in it's box on the shelf ever since. No I won't buy another one easily.

    We have 2 of them in the family, a 10x fixed model with 30mm tube and a 4-16x Hugo with 1" tube. Both do duty on .22 rifles. For the application, I can't fault them. The Hugo range would probably not last on a medium-bore center fire rifle. There are more expensive models for that.

    The scopes have a 5-year warranty that basically covers factory faults. So if you break it, you just buy another one. The selling price makes this feasible.

    Half of my Lynx and Leupold scopes have been back to the factory for repairs, and I got them back as good as new. I can recommend those makes. Vortex has about the best warranty in the business, so I can recommend that as well, although I have not needed to use it yet.
