I want to put the VX!12-7 x 33 scope on my AR (.223/556) for 100-150 yard shooting. But the guy behind the counter at Bass Pro Shops says that Leupold will not honor their warranty (if anything goes wrong with it) on it because it's mounted on an AR rifle. (Too much vibration on the 223). Anybody heard of such a thing? I'll be using it for hunting.

So, one of these:
Leupold Optics VX-1 2-7x33mm includes Shotgun/Muzzleloader - | Leupold Optics

Which has a lifetime warranty as outlined here:
Leupold Warranty Infomation | Leupold Optics

Leupold Warranty Information

and I'm having a hard time believing the Bass Pro doofus behind the counter. The hell was he thinking? Was he trying to upsell you on something else?

Really, bass pro?? That is the last i go for anything. They are proud of what they sell, and their prices prove it. Bass Pro is not Leupold, and i highly doubt he knows very much.

You'd be just fine with the VX1.

the scope on a 12ga definetly certifies that it would be more then adequate for an ar duh.
