    I have a Swarovski Z6i and love it. Was playing with mounting positions when it fell off my counter onto tile. Dent on top and one of the lenses had little spider cracks. Swarovski only charged me $95 for some parts. I paid for shipping to RI, they shipped it to Austria and back to me.

    I am sure that made you sick. Dang was not a bad price to fix how long did it take.

    There is nothing like great customer service.
    A couple of years back I dinged a Burris Black Diamond (think it cost > $1k). I sent it back to Burris to see what could be done. Burris kept it, but I think they sent me a coupon for about 10% off the next Burris I bought.

    Took about 8 weeks. And yes it made me sick. And yes I was afraid I would have to toss the scope as repair bills on stuff like that cost as much as a used scope sometimes.

    Burris was made in Greeley Colorado and were really a hidden secret for good quality for a long time. Now they are made in the Philippines just like the Nikon and a bunch of others. Maybe their high end stuff is still good but mid to lower stuff isn't too good.

    If you could see the Z6i brightness I don't think the 10mm would be visible

    I have an early 1960s 2x Weaver J4 in 3/4" tube.

    It's yours for only $20.

    Granted, it's not nearly as fancy as the other recommendations...

    But mount this on your rifle, and I guarantee you that within three months you'll be amazed at how much your stalking and tracking skills have improved.

    Or your money back.
