    I am looking at buying a ss310 Model scope sold by Horton and couldn't find any warranty details on the website. Does anyone know what kind of warranty this scope has? Also does anyone have one and how do you like it? (BTW was reportedly made by Hawke.)

    According to Horton Customer Service it's 2 years on scopes, 1 year on red dots... I have several Horton scopes including the one mentioned, I love em all. One note for beginners about red-dot optics... I always advise that you buy a scope and not a red-dot for your primary hunting weapon. If the red-dot fails in the field or the battery dies you are dead in the water. If a scope / lighted scope's electronics fail you STILL HAVE CROSSHAIRS.

    I actually have been scoping out a Horton scope for my Jennings. I love the fact that the speed adjustments works for a slow bow like mine.

    this is true but I have used Tasco and Millet dot scopes for over 20 years and a lot of hunting and never had one go bad or have the batteries run down. I always carried extra batteries in the hood foam or in the stock of my Realtree Ultra-Lite.
    the one atvantage to a scope is you can see spikes in low light.

    Horton shows two years on scopes. They are a good quality optic and seem to be very solid and durable. I had one of their red dots, but sent it back because the three dots were not in a verticle line when the bow was level. Traded them for a SS047 without any problem. Good folks to deal with on warranty issues.
