I have just bought a lisenfeld 4-9x42 which was a good price from e bay. It has arrived and has a bit of a crimp in it. The seller gave me a fairly monotone response, send it back or use it, so I wonder how serious it will be. It is a 26mm tube and looks like a 1" mount may have been used.
I have no idea if this is a bad case of crimping or superficial as I have never seen a case of it befor.
the crimping is a depression 1/2 of the way round, perhaps half a mm deep. Is this likely to have an effect on the functioning of the scope? I don't know what is inside the front end of a scope that could be disturbed by this. I am going to try and bore sight it on my 6.5 tomorrow, so I will know if the crosshairs move ok.
Thanks in in advance for any help.
