As many of you know, my scope gave out on my about five months back. Took me a long time to track down the purchase info so I could have it fixed under warranty. Well, it only took a short time for them to put the scope all back together again. I'd say that was an awesome turnaround. Looks like it will be ready for hunting season. It will get the stamp of approval after I run it to the range for some recoil testing. I did end up having to get new rings as one of the quick detach rings basically fell apart when I took the scope off. The new rings should hold up well. As usual, I wouldn't go denying everyone a little Marlin porn. Also, that's flash being all mopy as usual.
