Question about Swift 779 Birdfeeder (10x40) Monocular
Dropped unit. Knocked the prisims loose. All glass appears okay. No cracks chips or scratches. I paid $90.00 for the monocular. Is it economically practical to try to have them repaired?
It's quite easy to dismantle and inspect, look for tiny retainer screws around eyepiece and/or unscrew lens shrouds. Normally the prisms shouldn't come loose in average to good quality viewers, they'd be held in by some sort of retainer, eg- flexed, spring tempered metal, where you screw in one side and then have to flex (bend) the metal to screw in other side over the back of the prism. It sounds like yours may use an adhesive retainer, if so clean of old residue and use fresh silicone, or may have broken the clip and or screws. But it may just have popped out, in which case reattach it. Make sure the prisms are seated properly, 1 hardly visible flake of glue or dirt under the prism will offset vision noticeably. I would say you may be lucky and find an honest repairer for about $45.00 if prisms aren't damaged.
