Sorry to hear that, and YES it can be repaired.

I'd use some time today to box it up and include a note of what the issue is. Then be at the Post Office when they open tomorrow and send it to Tesoro repair/service department Priority Mail. That will get it there for repair by Wednesday, or Thursday at the latest, and you'll have it back in your hands in no time. They are quick and efficient in their service work.

And I agree with you. While I enjoy my Mojave, Silver Sabre microMAX and Vaquero, the Bandido II microMAX has been and continues to be one of my all-time favorite Tesoro models. thumbs up Just mail it off, then call them to give them a heads-up it is on the way.
