I had a tasco I think it was around 160 bucks. diff not a high end. I thought there was a problem and, oh I had no paper work and had the scope for a year or more, called them they said send it in and they sent me a new scope. For 200 bucks they probably won't even give it a thought. They'll just ship you a new one. But you never know they may say there is nothing wrong and bill you but you will know if its good or not.
