For those that have gotten their scopes what height rings do you recommend? I am looking at Seekins rings.
It’s not the arrow, it’s the turret markings / positions in the scope body being off. Krylon painting the cap doesn’t fix it.Ok I get it, the batch of GAP scopes had many with the arrow or turret markings or whatnot a bit off. But I mean come on, they already came up to us and offered to correct it. You chose not to and get an LRTS instead and it has almost the same problem. Krylon paint the cap so you don't see the arrow. Every other scope i own or have owned does not come with an arrow on top. These are great scopes and the arrow affects nothing performance-wise!
The two LRTSi replacements I received the arrows were fine, at least so close I didn't notice them being off and much better than the 2 (of 4) I sent in originally that were way off.
One of the replacement LRTSi's the elevation turret locked up to the point I can't turn it now when I first put it through a couple turns out of the box, so that one is waiting for another replacement, I'm a magnet for QC issues though. I could order a pallet of steel bricks and 50% of them would be cracked. My friends joke that companies should pay me to buy their stuff just to get their lemons off the market. It doesn't even bother me anymore, I just expect to have issues with about 50% of the stuff I buy doesn't matter how bulletproof the product/company is.
The picture of yours is interesting because the zero hash mark appears well centered on the tube. On the two bad ones I had the zero hash mark was very obviously shifted to the right of the center of the scope tube.
Explain to me what you mean and how it actually affects the proper usage of the scope. I see that the zero marking lines up just fine with the hash marks. As such, exactly how does that affect anything?It’s not the arrow, it’s the turret markings / positions in the scope body being off. Krylon painting the cap doesn’t fix it.
It concerns me since it’s likely a QC issue at the LOW factory in Japan. I’m going to run it through a tall target and box test to see if there are other issues before making a decision on what to do next.
Still love my DMR2i though.
DJ Keyhole, That pic you posted shows the zero mark lining up pretty close to perfectly to the turret. Maybe you posted the wrong pic?
JW, to me that is unacceptable and I'd send that back to Leupold, no matter how many times it takes, tell them not to send it back to you until the 0 lines up with the tick mark. If they can't get it to align I'd demand they send a new scope. With the money we pay for these optics I expect them to be spot on in every way, if the manufacturer won't fix it then I'd tell the community which will ultimately come back to the mfr. That being said, I do have some grace for the mfr and realize sometimes these things will slip through QA/QC; however, they ought to have the attitude that they will fix it if the customer is not happy.That photo looks pretty dead nuts on to me. And people were saying I was picky with my Mk5 turret like this pic attached.

What do you mean? Are you saying that GAP no longer is taking orders for the scope? We knew the LRHS series was discontinued, just want to make sure I understand your statement correctly.
So is it confirmed that GAP is done and is no longer offering orders for the LRHSi?I think he meant since that line of scopes is discontinued you will never see that deal again. I think GAP did 3 rounds of sales/shipments. Those who took advantage, good for them, those who did not but now want to, too bad!

I do think that Bushnell should not lose the LRHS reticle, or “Circle of Death” as some have referred to it. It is a well thought out reticle for LR hunting applications IMO.
Yes, very much so. At 4.5, the circle is still quite noticible, even in low light. The reticle is almost a G2 reticle with the 4 mil circle added. Plus, the major stadia are there just like any other hunting reticle to guide the eye at low power.You like it even in the 4.5 bottom end scope? I like the G2H in the 3-12, but the G3 seemed plenty visible to me at 4.5. With more use I may find different, I have literally only mounted the LRTS so far. It came in with an Athlon midas 2.5-15, Sig Tango 6, and a couple of Burris 5-25s and i have been pre occupied in load development for my hunting rifle.
Truthfully, I have a couple other, older Bushnells, including and HDMR, but this one is the first that provided the quality of glass that I expected for the dollars. It’s also my favorite for all of the reasons stated above.
I have not personally seen any of the new current DMR 2, XRS and ERS crop of scopes, but if they are as good as this one, I’m interested.
Gotcha. Guess I missed out on that. Would have been a $550 scope. Oh well, still a heck of a deal for $750.Bushnell had a $200 per tactical scope rebate earlier this year, not sure if/when it ended, but I just got the debit card the other day in the mail. Don't see it on Bushnell's promotions page but found on old pdf copy and it looks like the rebate had to be sent in by Nov. 30th.
