Fine Filipino Engineering...Maybe
A similar problem recently arose with my much more-expensive Vortex PST scope (mine's on the bottom). Vortex turned my return around in less than a week with a fix or replacement. I'll miss the practice match waiting for delivery, but at least I'll have time to remount it and re-sight it before the Superstition 3-Gun later in the month. I was prepared to switch the Simmons over to the Thumper, but I'm glad that's not necessary. I really like the scope and hope that problem was just a fluke.
