Is it bad to totaly unscrew the rear eye peice on a scope? My buddy was messing with one of my scopes (a pricy one) and totaly unscrewed the rear eye peice from the main body. I screwed it back on, and all looks ok, but did i let the gas charge out? Or is it likley to fog up now?

I believe that the expensive scopes are filled with Nitrogen, so it may be that you will need to get the scope sent off to the manufacturers and get it sorted.

Yep, he fuxxored you. Most good scopes are fileld with inert gasses to keep them stable in extreme conditions, I would say that your scope tube is now filled with AIR vice nitrogen or what have you. Call the manufacturer and see if they can help out. HTH

As long as you're sending it back for repair anyhow, beat your buddy over the head with it first! :lol:

I called Nikon, they said they will fix it free of charge. They should not make the rear eye peice removable for idots like me who let buddys mess with their guns!

Very few shooters over here feel like buying Nikon any more.
A couple of months ago they had a picture in a shooting magazine which featured a fox with its head showing up in the “Cross-hairs” of a Nikon scope.
They received a complaint from some dip-s#it “Animal rights” protesters about this picture, and immediately issued a statement saying that they wouldn’t do it again. :shock: They then went on to try and disassociate themselves with any form of hunting, saying that most of their scopes were used for “Target shooting”, and that they couldn’t be held responsible for anyone who used them for other purposes. :?
It was the most unbelievable piece of “Ass kissing” that I have ever seen, and demonstrates how these big companies will try to be as “Politically correct” as they can whilst still trying to con us shooters that they are our friends. :roll:
Personally I wouldn’t buy a Nikon if they were selling them at one tenth of their current price. Bastards!!!!!!!!! :x

I think they make a great scope, but dont like them too much because they are made in japan. I only buy American made guns and shooting accesories most all the time. The only exceptions are a Glock, and a Browning A-5 (belgum). Europe is the only other acceptable place...and i dont evan like to buy from them! The Nikon was given to me....good scope though

If Nikon doesn't want to be associated with hunting, they should get out of the scope business.... I'll remember that the next time I'm looking for a scope.

I found three but they all say "Not Available " :roll:

Maybe we should tell them how their binoculars are used for hunting too. That would really put a crimp in their profits, if they dropped them too. :wink:

Also, don’t hunters like to take pictures of their kill?

Hmmm 8)

Have you told them that yet? A little International FU of sorts?
