Rattle inside the set 8X20X50 set of binoculars Model # is #16-82050-1
It seems that refractor on the right barrel has come loose. IT moves around when you try to use the binoculars. The problem is in the smaller end of the right lense case and moves around whenever you try to focus the set.
Can this be fixed and where or can I fix it myself. Love the binoculars.

This effect is produced when the tho sides of the binoculars are not focusing the same. Since you sayit is present at long distance, it might be that one barrel is stuck and is not focusing the same as the otherone when you scroll the middle "focuser".
What you can do is open it up and try to clean it, also see if there is something, that is making one of the lenses not move forward as far as the other one.
While I am mostly a camera expert , I have seen the problem that you are describing. Inside the camera there is a little reflector which is used to invert the picture and focus it to the viewing eyes.
These reflectors are stuck to the camera casing using epoxy and the problem is that with time the epoxy becomes brittle and cracks. When it is cracked , the lens will move out of it's fixed posistion but the epoxy does not always break loose fully which is why you do not hear any rattle.
You could attempt to open it up and glue the lens back into posistion using some new epoxy , but you could possibly have some problems with the screws of they are not standard.
In this case ask a jeweler to repiar the binocular for you as this should not cost much to repiar...no more than $15.
I was having a double vision problem with my Barska 10-30X50 zoom, 195FT/100YDS binoculars. One image was always higher than the other. This was tolerable at low zoom, but was further aggravated the more I zoomed in. I found that I could grasp both barrels and twist them in opposite directions (one side up, the other side down) and force the two images to merge--but that was a strain and an unpleasant viewing experience. As an experiment, while looking through the binoculars, I grasped the far end of the right barrel and twisted it on its axis. Nothing happened at first, but after a certain amount of resistance it began to rotate independently of the body. Lo and behold, this shifted the barrel's axis, and the image for that eye moved vertically! I turned it until the two images merged, and now I'm thrilled to say that the problem is solved! I don't have a clue if this would work on any other brand or model, but it's worth a try!
sounds like they dropped hard. there should be lock rings floating around inside. if you can get the front objective ring off, the next lock ring,then the objective should come ouy and you can reset the inside lock ring.....any questions give me a call.........larry @reichinstruments.com
