Dealers giving wrong info


Well-Known Member
Hi guys, I wondered if anyone has bought an item on the strength of a dealers advice / knowledge to later find that the Information given was totally inaccurate.

I recently enquired via phone about the price of a pair of Zeiss rangefinding binoculars from a Gunshop, after getting the price, I asked what the warranty period was... I was told it was 25 years, this is absolutely incorrect as the correct answer is 5 years on the rangefinder and 10 years on the rest of the binoculars. I had a feeling that the person on the other end was guessing as there was a long pause before he came up with the answer.

Anyone had anything similar I wonder?
