Fujinon Rifle Scopes

Postby JimFromTN on Wed Dec 03, 2008 2:59 pm

How do Fujinon Rifle Scopes rate? I take it that they discontinued their rifle scopes. I noticed that optics planet carries other optics by Fujinon and I was wondering how their scopes rated. What would it be comprable with as far as other brands/models, ie Leupold VXI, VXII, nikon prostaff, nikon buckmaster, Leapers, NCStar?

A Google search puts the prices in the mid-range, but they have been discontinued for at least three years. I don't remember ever looking at one.

Fujinon optics are the most underrated, undercovered optics out there. I hate that I did not ever buy a riflescope of theirs because I looked through one years ago and it was brilliant edge to edge. Luckily I did buy a Fujinon spotting scope and it easily performs beside any Leica or Swarovski for a literal fraction of the cost.

I own a 3-9x42 Fujinon. I agree that it is a nice bright scope. My suggestion is DO NOT buy one unless you want a throwaway scope. That is because though the scopes have a lifetime warranty Fujinon will not back it because they do not make scopes anymore. At least that is what the national sales manager in New Jersey told me. My scope developed a problem internally. I called Fujinon and everyone seemed baffled by how to honor their lifetime warranty. I finally got the head honcho on the phone and he said they can't honor their warranty because they don't ake scopes. I told him that was unacceptable and he said go ahead and send him the scope and he would see what he could do. Long story short - the scope sat in his office for a year and when I called he sent it back to me unrepaired. Decent product - horrible service. I will never buy anything Fujinon again.

I also purchased a Fujinon spotting scope and it is every bit the scope of a Swarovski or Leica at a much lower pricepoint. I looked through several of their rifle scopes about 8 years ago and clarity was very very impressive. A current make out there that I think compares in quality very favorably to the best scopes (Zeiss, Swarovski) is Vortex. The HD line of Vortex is more expensive than Fujinon was but well worth it. AND they have a REAL, American lifetime warranty.
