My New Bushnell H20 7x50 Binoculars

My Bushnell H20 7x50 Binoculars had to be returned for two reasons. The hole at the center of the scopes where the mount adapter goes into was to large. The 1/4 inch threads that my binoculars mounts have are to small. The stated eye relief is not correct. The eye cups are adjustable, but when turned completely down the image has a lot of black outs. When turned up to prevent the black outs, twenty percent of the field of view is lost. I feel Bushnell is dishonest about the eye relief. I returned them back to Walmart's costumer service counter for a complete refund.

sorry to hear this, but you learned some things. You will be better served by getting good binoculars from a place like Oberwerke, Orion, Celestron, OPT. they have a lot of price ranges, and will make sure that this doesn’t happen to you.
