Basically If I were to drop it, I dont want it to break.
About 30 years ago, a customer of mine brought in a Weatherby Mark V with a Leupold 3.5-10 that had been dropped off a rimrock in Nevada, dropped about 50' onto rocks. The body of the scope was bent, but the scope still held zero. He bought a new scope and gave me the scope if I wanted it. I shipped it to Leupold, they sent me a new scope. Score!

Had a customer who was headed to Alaska, went to the range a week before leaving and his older Leupold scope was not adjusting. Called Leupold, they sent a scope to the Fairbanks airport to meet him when he got there. Score!

I sent an older Leupold scope I picked up in trade to the factory for service, got a call from the repair tech that the scope could not be repaired and would I be interested in a current production model to replace it? Score!

So, while people say their scope is as good as a Leupold, their customer service is not, and that is part of what you are paying for when you buy a Leupold scope. Buy a Leupold.

And yes, I have bought other scopes over the years. A Burris 4-12X Diamond scope that lasted a few years before dying that Burris would not repair under warranty, a Vortex Diamondback 4-12X for my new AR build that you cannot see 22 caliber holes at 100 yds with, a BDC scope for my Ruger 77/22 Match/Target that works fine but is not really clear, a 4X Burris that lives on my 10/22. None of them are as good as a Leupold that would have cost just a little bit more. Now I buy Leupolds and don't worry about it.
