Well the scope still works but something inside broke and is easily visible inside the scope. You can also hear it rattling around with a little shaking. I was shooting 308 suppressed when it happened. This is the 525P with Gen 2XR reticle in an Era Tac Mount. I know Tangent is great with their customer service but such a hassle. A couple pics although not the best with my old phone. Ugh...

Looks like a lock ring typically used to secure a lens. Could also be used to double up a lock ring the same way you double nut a fastener if you don't want it coming loose.

It clearly one of the features. “Scope inside a scope.”

Also, the rattling is all the poor peasant souls tangent uses to make the scope trying to escape. It takes souls of three Athlon and one IOR owner to create one tangent theta optic.

Surely you can get a IOR for replacment , inside lens retaining ring falling of from imense recoil of .308 man that sure is tough .

Yes it is a Ritter & Stark Rifle/action. Armament is already all over it. They send out the UPS call tags for the return to Canada. Have a bunch of customs forms to sign and include as I did it last November for this scope as the illumination feature stopped working. Maybe they will just send me a new Gen 3XR?????

I could see that too if I did drop it but I baby the shit out of it. I’ve fired it with the 300WM and 338LM barrels without any problems. Shit happens. Armament who owns Elcan and Tangent are really good and quick with their service. Unfortunately I know because I’ve sent this scope back once already.

Technically the third. I bought it here and the original owner sent it back because the turret didn’t line up exactly. I think I qualify for a new scope!!

Maybe they'll let you credit it for 1k towards a new one like the premier scopes. You know, after they check the list to see if your scopes serial number is eligible for warranty or not.:eek:

I contacted them late last night and I already have the UPS shipping label to send it back. They will take care of it. I’ll suggest sending me a new one......

I'm sure they'll take care of it, I'm just busting on TT that's all.

How in the hell do you do enough shooting in one week to break 2 scopes??? Obviously you don't understand how this safe queen thing works...
I have no safe Queens...if it doesn't get shot, I don't own it. But I'm just ribbing the TT and nf fan boys because an atacr went down in another thread too this week.

Seriously though after looking through your TT it's got me putting a genx3r on the list ?

Didn't NF have some hiccups with the zero stop on some NX scopes recently? Something about messy thread cutting on the turrets IIRC.
