Question about Optics
I own a swiss arms 4 x 40 scope ive only had it for about a month and th orher day i noticed the horizontal crosshair line has saperated for the others and i thought i could still shoot it with three lines so when i shot it the others separated
I managed to fix a scope with a broke retical by replacing the wire with a piece of fine hair glued to the edges of the retical ring.
The scope must be disassembled taking care not to ruin the threads, scratch the glass, etc. It's easy to make a mistake and reverse the optics when reassembling, so take care to note the direction of the glass.
My retical was mounted on a metal ring, it was made of fine wire, and soldered onto the ring. I used a tiny drop of JB weld to glue the hair to the ring.
If I had to do it all over again, I would have looked for something finer than hair... And made a jig to clamp the hair before gluing.
(it took me several attempts to get it just right.)
