i have come to the conclusion this scope is faulty..i am not a novice shooter ..however i an new to FT..so please dont think i have over looked the obvious things ..i have had the respect as to not name the person i purchased this scope from, but it seems he has made himself known by posting his reply on this post . i contacted the seller within one hour of receiving this scope & explained every thing as best i could. the seller sold the scope to me with a price including P&P..which i agreed & paid the said amount by bank transfer .
it appears the seller has insured this scope in the post for £100 ....that was his choice not mine ..his price was ..once again "inc p&p"...
if the scope has been damaged in transit (i would think not as it was very well packed with no box damage at all ) then its down to the postage company for compensation isn't it ? ...but would that be my fault for the seller under insuring the scope ? i would think not.
it was posted Saturday & due to the postal service making a mess of things (& the seller not checking the delivery address on the receipt that they gave him ), it only arrived this morning ....so with much excitement i unpacked it, held it in my hand ..& tried to roughly focus on the neighbors house ..(as you do ...) this is when i realized the problem ...
this was paid for by my wife...as a big birthday present as i am the big 50 on July 1st...the cost of this scope represents 3 weeks work for her as she only work part time on minimum wage .so you can imagine the stress this is causing ,..as the seller keeps quoting posted at buyers risk ..let me ask you people ..how many times do you hear that of sellers ???
on the advice of a newly made (& much valued friend ) i am taking the scope to be looked at by some more knowledgeable people on Saturday..i will keep you all posted ..best regards Rob
