In September of 2019, Nikon sent out the following message to all Nikon dealers:

“We wanted to make you aware of a change that will take place regarding Nikon Inc.’s Sport Optics product warranty program. After review, we have decided to make some program adjustments that will require changes to in-store, online and other marketing materials.

PROGRAM CHANGE: Nikon Inc.’s product warranty is changing from the current product warranty to the following:

Lifetime limited warranty for the optical system of Binoculars, Fieldscopes and Riflescopes;

Seven-year limited warranty for non-optical system components of Binoculars, Fieldscopes and Riflescopes;

One-year limited warranty for electrical components of Binoculars, Fieldscopes and Riflescopes.

The Five-year limited warranty on all components for Rangefinder and Red Dot/Reflex sight products remains the same.

Please note that going forward we are ending our No-Fault Repair Policy. Therefore, the new warranty program will not apply to any SRO product that is subjected to misuse, alteration or accident or for damage caused from unauthorized replacement parts, will require consumer proof of purchase from an authorized dealer/reseller and will not be transferable from one consumer to another.”

So, let’s answer the question: do Nikon scopes have a lifetime warranty?
If you have a Nikon scope that was purchased before the warranty change, and can prove that it was purchased before the warranty change (if needed), then the answer is yes, your scope basically has a lifetime warranty under the original Nikon No Fault warranty program.

If you have a Nikon scope and:

It was purchased after the warranty change, or;
You cannot prove when it was purchased or it is not clear when the scope was purchased, or;
You are not the original owner and cannot prove when the purchase was made, or;
Your Nikon scope was purchased after the warranty change, and you are not the original owner;
Then your Nikon scope does NOT have a lifetime warranty.

Best answer I’ve seen anywhere for this point. Thanks for putting that together!

Will Nikon still warranty scopes, now that they are out of business?
First, its important to clarify that Nikon is not out of business as a company. They just decided to get out of the rifle scope market.

In speaking to several Nikon reps both at my day job and at various outdoor shows, it sounds as though Nikon will be honoring the original warranty that was in place when the Nikon scope was purchased. However, proving the date of that purchase may be a challenge. As a matter of fact, on a personal note, I’m pretty certain I no longer have all the receipts to the various Nikon scopes I own.

However, if you purchase a Nikon scope after the warranty change was introduced, then your scope will only be covered under more restrictive circumstances (must have receipt, must have purchased from authorized Nikon dealer, etc.).

Can you do a Nikon scope warranty review?
Honestly, it’s hard to actually review a warranty as its more the experiences that you had when the warranty was engaged.

As I mentioned previously, my experiences with the Nikon No Fault warranty were very good. Granted, I can only recall using it twice, but both instances were positive in my opinion.

I have not used the newer Limited Lifetime warranty, so I have no firsthand experience with it. However, it looks to be far more restrictive than the No Fault warranty and there seem to be quite a few “loopholes” built in, giving Nikon an out from having to repair or replace the scope.

Can you compare the Nikon vs Vortex warranty?
There’s not really much to compare here.

While Nikon’s original No Fault warranty would potentially give the Vortex warranty a run for the money, the Vortex warranty is clearly better in my opinion. And, compared to the newer, more restrictive Nikon warranty, the Vortex warranty blows it away.

Vortex may its faults here and there, but their warranty is one of the best in the business. Period.

How’s the Nikon scope warranty without a receipt?
Honestly, it seems like a bit of a gray area at this time.

If you have an older Nikon scope that was obviously purchased under the original No Fault warranty, then you most likely won’t need a receipt.

However, if you have a newer one and there’s a question as to when it was purchased to determine which warranty applies, then you may have an issue. If the scope clearly falls under the new warranty program, then you have to have a receipt in order to even start a warranty claim.

Since they stopped production, it is just a matter of time they will end warranty service, just like Dell or HP would for older model computers.......

Scam...they put it up on their website to increase traffic. It says in stock but when you try to check out it says out of stock. Waste of time. Confirmed out of stock after a call to their customer representative.
