Thread: Schmidt & Bender PM2 warranty

    Schmidt & Bender PM2 warranty

    Hi All. I was thinking of buying a PM2 for my rifle but noticed on S&B's website that the PM2's are only under a warranty for 2 years. This seems a bit mean for a 2k+ scope. What do people think?

    Wasn't aware of the short warranty, used to be a lot longer than that. However, I've a 4-16x50 PM11 on one of my rifles and absolutely love it, built like a tank and short of knocking in fence posts with it, I would be surprised if it will ever need to undergo warranty repairs.

    Phone York Guns, they are one of the importers. I'm sure they with give you the answer.
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    If this scope is being supplied to military/ police forces, this may be the reason.

    Did a quick comparison between the top Euro manufacturers.

    Schmidt & Bender PM2's have 2 years.
    Swarovski 10 years (was 5 years previously) & only 2 years on the illumination electronics.
    Zeiss 10 years on scope & illumination electronics (I think). K
    ahles 11 years & only 2 years on the illumination electronics).

    Schmidt & Bender PM2's are the most expensive scopes and have the least warranties!!
