Great No Hassles Customer Service
initially, there was a little confusion with regard to the optical tube that was shipped and its description online. One email from me, a phone call from OPT sales/customer service and everything was remedied at absolutely no cost to me. Within 35 hours the exact item that I wanted arrived at my house. I Took it out for a test run the night after it arrived, it works beautifully and it operates like a brand new scope even though it is Used, or as the Cadillac dealers call it, “pre-owned”.
