From the sound of your description, agree that you should try exchanging for a new pair under the warranty.
Own a vortex diamondback and had similar issues as well, paint flaking off the central hinge, my rubber lens cover broke off, rubber caps for eyepieces fell out at least 3 times and I've had to repeatedly glue them back, focus knob loose and about to fall off (difficult to adjust), minor annoying specks in the glass that distract your vision. Although I use them very regularly and the optics are still mostly fine, the exterior of the bins has not held up at all. Recently went to exchange it under the warranty, hopefully the new pair holds up.
That sounds about as bad as anything ever reported here with quality problems on the site.
That many problems leads me to wonder if you are for real, or just have
posted this for other reasons.
