    Default Vintage scope servicing

    I was wondering... Are there any, if any at all, scope servicing agencies, companies or individuals in SA?
    In particular I have a rather nice full steel tube Weaver variable zoom scope, 2.5-7, which requires some cleaning of the occular lens and sorting of the zoom ring. However, I realize that disassembly means "loss of nitrogen". Does this scope have Nitrogen in it? I don't know.

    But, please, if you are able to assist, pls lemme know and we can start talking.

    Cheers

    Hello Fucius,

    I don't know if this person will be able to help you or not.

    He is apparently a qualified binocular repair technician , perhaps he will be willing to help you.

    I have not personally used his services , so I cannot vouch for his competence.

    His name is Glenn and the phone number that I have is 082-939-2798.

    Perhaps this will help , let us know.

    Cheers.

    Thx for the contact details, Juniper.
    Unfortunately it turns out my Weaver scope has press fitted lenses and you can't take it apart to service

    What a waste of a good looking scope....
