The likelyhood is that a replacement Bushnell scope will be offered as opposed to a repair.
I have had very little to do with Bushnell optics so what are they like?
I would hope the replacement scope is of a similar spec and to the value of what I paid back in the day for the WTC. 3.5-10x50 and around the £250ish mark.
Any recommendations or suggestions?

I've got a Bushnell Trophy XLT 3-12x56 on my .223. Excellent scope.Also got a Trophy XLT 4-12x40 on my rimfire. If you keep to the XLT or better models you won't go far wrong IMO.

I can't remember the WTC 3.5-10x50 ever being £250, perhaps I just missed it, they were £200-£210 for years from what I recall. Very good scope just the same!
Anyway, I have a 5-15 Legend on my .22lr Semi, I'm happy enough with that.
A couple of years back I invested in a 6-24x50 Elite Mil dot and was not impressed at all, perhaps I got a bad one but the optics were nothing impressive and I was around 3feet (about 1m) short on elevation for my .243 at 600 yards.
It went back for a refund!

But it was from a local outfit and I know they are not the cheapest.
The legend seems to be the recommended scope. So we will have a run with that.

Actually, it goes through my mind the 3.5-10-50 WTC is back in production in the Philippines.
Let me be clear here, I do not know if this is the original spec or the copy Chinese WTC, and now they simply make it in Philippines.
This has cropped up before, but I can supply NEW Philippines WTC 3.5-10x50 for around £150-155. Only problem is I need a minimum of 10 orders to get this deal from the supplier!
Talk amongst yourselves!

Who's manufacturing them? I was under the impression that simmons went tits up years ago when they were bought out by AGS. Logun and I think webley met the same end.
Bushnell now own simmons. If you find the US simmons site and ring them your directed to Bushnell.
