Question about Barska Optics Barska 10-40x50 Ao Varmint Riflescope, Black Matte, Mil
I was hunting Elk in Colorado this year and had it rain several times and found that my scope fogged up and couldn't complete the hunt. Now I see that there is moisture in the scope. Is this scope repairable or do I discard it and purchase another?
Note Here is Bushnells contact information if you would like to ask them for suggested methods
Note most scope manufacturers offer a mail in repair service, this has to be cheaper than discarding your scope and buying a new one :)

In the past, I have successfully dried out scopes and binoculars by them in a warm oven.NO MORE than 150 degrees and monitor them closely.Many plastic parts will melt at high temps and then you have an expensive paperweight.I have dried out my Pentax 12x50s ($300) several times.I should know enough to come in out of the rain but will probably never learn.Good Luck!

I would say the gas in the scope has leaked out. You probably have a bad seal in it. Send it back to the manufacturer and they will warranty it. All scope companies have really good warranties. TP
