    Was wondering if anyone here has had a Nightforce that they have sent away for repair/warranty work.

    Did you send it back to Nightforce or use a 3rd party that you would recommend?

    Elevation turret needs attention on a scope :(

    Thanks gullya, unfortunately got this one second hand and don't believe there is a retailer listed on their site for Ireland.

    Gowen and Bradshaw were always the main agent for Nightforce in Ireland. Whether they still are or not i don't know.

    Thanks Cass, will get in touch with them.

    I sent a mail to Nightforce themselves and they said with a fault like I have it is best to return it to them. Hopefully dealer/importer here can help facilitate it :(:(

    You can send it directly yourself, just register the scope/package and confirm they receive it. Little too expensive to be "loosing" in the post.

    Had my NXS refurbed about 6 months back. Had them change the reticle as well. Sent the scope to Gowen & Bradshaw. It was gone only 2 or 3 weeks.

    Excellent service. Recommend highly.

    Great alanmc, exactly the type of recommendation I was hoping for.

    Yeah I contacted Nightforce directly, hoping I could just ship scope to them for repair but they won't accept them directly from a customer. Will contact the people recommended here and let people know how it goes.

    Hey folks, thought I would come back with an update on this. So scope was sent to sportsman gun centre in the UK, they sent it to Nightforce and repaired under warranty for free. Now it took the bones of 20 weeks but the scope is home safe and sound.

    Looking forward to putting it back to work

    Edit just to say, no-one here would touch it. Will definitely be a consideration for me the next time I purchase a high value scope, can the store supplying it take care of warranty work.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 27,534 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Cass


    I'd hazard a guess, from experience, that the majority of that time was shipping it to Nightforce. I know a scope i sent back for repair was sitting on a shelf in the UK for weeks before they shipped it on.

    Glad you got sorted though.
