Used Ultradot shopping

Post by Bruce in WV on 9/26/2014, 10:47 pm

I'm starting to look for a used Ultradot on the net. Is there a problem with fakes on the market? If so, what are the keys to identifying a fake?
Thank you.

I haven't seen any fake Ultradots (except for the previous thread  that found the same scopes for sale in Japan...but those weren't being sold as Ultradots).

However, used ultradots don't have a warranty, and a new one is covered by a lifetime warranty to the original owner.  The ultradots are good, but you do occasionally see a failure--it's way better to have them fix it under warranty than to be stuck with a broken one.

The original 1" ultradot doesn't have "click" elevation and windage.  Those don't have a warranty on them at all.  You can identify those because of their dust caps have square shoulders.

I just mailed in my 30 mm Ultra Dot for warranty repair and because I couldn't find my receipt they are charging me additional $25 for repair. So I assume you could get one fixed and pay the $25 on top of the $12.95 shipping.

Really?  Did you send it in, in an original box?   I had an Ultradot go bad that I had bought on a gun, as a package, from  a custom gunsmith.    They honored it.  I have another one, I may need to send in.  This is concerning.

Just had my Ultradot4 repaired. And yes, it's $12.95, plus an additional $25 if you don't have a receipt.

The website says "proof of purchase" which isn't exactly the same thing as a receipt.  


I won an Ultradot at Larry's picnic this summer.   He didn't give me a receipt.    And of course, I didn't purchase it.   

   So, am I screwed?

I wasn't going to go there, but since the genie is out of the bottle..

You can have several of the same UD scope, and as long as you have at least 1 receipt, they are all covered....

Does your receipt have the serial number on it?

No, at least the few receipts I have do not have serial numbers on them.

Yeah,

I was disappointed by this same repair fee. My dot started going intermittent at league last night. Called ultradot. I don't have the receipt and need to wait 2 to 4 weeks to get it back. Guess I always thought they would be quicker than that given the nature of our sport. Guess I'll take one off ofthe .45, then get to bench them both again when I get it back.
