I recognize that this is an old(er) thread, but had to chip in.  New to OpticsTalk, but got here through the sampleslist.  Happy buyer here, and anticipate I will be again!

I just made my first order off the sample list today. It says demo b so hopefully it’s pretty good. Never used a Zeiss conquest but a Zeiss 3-12x56 for 405 shipped after the discount just seemed like too good a deal to not take a chance on. I hear good things about em

I, too, have found the items on the samplelist to be much better than the "rating".  I think I have 6 scopes that came from the samplelist, every one is excellent.  I've never found a blemish on any of them...

I bought some bino's off the sample list.  Very expensive ones.  They were rated as a B, but they were in pretty bad shape.  The glass itself had scratches and coating rubbed off. 

I called them and they immediately took care of me.  Even thought they had no more in stock, they contacted Zeiss and got another refurb pair and had them sent to me.  The second pair was flawless.

Reason I mention this, is not to dog them for the first set, as mistakes happen.  But to let you know even on the used sample list items, if you are not happy then they will make it right.  Buy with confidence.   
Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

I've bought 20 or so items off the SL over the years and have never been dissatisfied with the experience. I usually check the SL first before I buy any new optics to see if what I'm looking for is available there. Usually, the items I've bought were in better condition than described IMO, but as Supertool said, if I didn't think a given item was in the condition described, I have zero doubt that they would make it right.

When returning a item purchased off the sample list do they pay return shipping?

I would think it depends on situation... if grossly misrepresented I'm sure they would.

Does a demo qualify for factory warranty?
