Return Policy:

The bottom line is I want you to be happy your purchase. If the unit is unmounted or used and you are not happy with your purchase or feel it will not do what you want it to do I will take it back for a full credit towards another optic and get you in another optic. I try and spend the extra time with each and every customer so this doesn’t happen but I understand sometimes it may.

However if this optic is mounted and used I will have to treat it as a used optic and will be dealt with on a one on one basis.

*Returns for full credit may be subject to 5% restocking fee to cover shipping and credit card processing fees.
