Thread: Scope restoration

    Scope restoration

    Any advice on refinishing a scratched and worn scope? I'm doing up a 10/22 and the scope works fine but look scruffy.
    Thanks

    Re coat it, Duracoat or Cerakote, done 100s, works a treat.

    I have painted a few of mine, so long as the logos are either deep enough to repaint or that area doesn't need reprinting it's easy enough

    take your time, prime and paint with decent can of spray paint
    Mask everything carefully

    How do you stop the moving bits getting gummed up when you paint? just a thread of masking tape on the joint?

    Scope skins are good - have one on one of mine
    For Gods sake - don't tell her how much I've spent

    Is it worth the effort?

    Masking joints and unwinding the ocular so the paint join is covered by the normal position

    have done some Binos too

    as to worth it, I have done Zeiss and Leica Binos and scopes worth much more in good nick

    I meant, if it is a Tasco or Nikko Stirling then is all the effort worth it?
    A Zeiss or Swaro I can understand.

    I enjoy fiddling about, and don't have any deer to shoot! Was painting the 10/22 woodwork worth doing? Together with a good clean up I reckon I have made a gun that cost me 75 worth at least 76. (I'm feeling very pleased with it actually)
