This is good info any consumer of Leupold products should know. Can it be added to the Stickies here and in the Optics Classifieds section?

Bill,
We're not sure yet. He's awaiting an answer back from Leupold. We spoke over the phone today and even he has his doubts about the scope that he bought used from someone else. He does seem to be a very genuine man and is as concerned as others are. I asked him to post in some other threads so we got to learn more about him, his experiences, and what his interests are rather than just in the classifieds.

Thanks, Dinny

I made the Leupold warning page a sticky in the Optics Classifieds.
