Hi Folks, I just found this old scope whilst clearing out a mountain of redundant shooting related stuff in my office, it was fitted on a rifle I purchased years ago and I quickly swapped it for another scope. I think it needs 26mm mounts but it was clamped onto the rifle I bought with 1inch mounts so the tube is very slightly dented at the front end. I have no confidence in it's use as a scope the way it is with this denting but I really don't know if it is useable or not! I don't really want to buy 26mm mounts just to find out and I don't have much spare time to mess about with it all.
It is a real shame as the glass at both ends is in absolutely fantastic condition in my opinion and it seems very good in low light conditions.
It is in 1st focal plane with crosshairs getting bigger/smaller with magnification. 4A Reticle.
From what I gather, Lisenfeld no longer exists as a company, so the question is......is it time to throw away this scope? or is there anywhere it can be sent to be re-tubed or something? or is it only useful as spares for someone with the same scope? I imagine it would be a decent bit of kit if it could be restored. Cheers
