I know a little about this.

It’s often cheaper, faster and easier for a manufacturer to just send a new item off the production line then repair one. Repairs are relatively labor intensive because they need to be done one by one. Sending in the damaged item is more for proof that someone had purchased the item and that the company had received payment for it. The company doesn’t want to be giving their product away.

The damaged item may be taken down and undamaged parts recycled to the line if the components are more valuable than the labor required to do it.

It's good to know which companies support their customers, however they do it.

Probably a more important question is what is a relyable mounting system for the scope. Which scope to use is very subjective on any rifle. There are as many right scopes as there are scopes, some are more right than others. A good scope for hunting is not necessarily good enough for target. For the most part a good scope will out shoot the rifle and the rifleman. A great scope will always out shoot a good scope,the rifle and the rifleman but will never be better than the mounting system.

if the OP only has a budget of $250, then some of the brands suggested, might as well cost $1000. there are some good scopes in his price range, and the ones that come to mind are the Swift's, Nikon's, the Bushnell's, ect. ect.

I have a Redfield Revolution 2-7x and it is clear, relatively light and well made. Redfield Revolutions are made in the same Oregon factory as Leupolds and they are priced around $150.

The new redfields are a hell of a bang for the buck, very good glass, exelent light transmission, lifetime warranty
