    Vintage scope repair?

    Does anyone have a vintage scope repair guy they have used and trust?

    Rone has had a .222 woodchuck gun he has had since the 60’s. It had a Bausch and Lomb 6-24 (BAL-var) externally adjusted Scope on it.

    this rifle is part of both of our youths. It was the first center fire rifle I ever shot.

    part of it broke. Basically a shim that keeps the scope centered in the front mount.

    does anyone have a repair guy they trust? We have the plastic piece that fell out.

    pic of rifle and rone for attention. This is the day the scope broke and part of my childhood withered.

    Nobody to personally recommend, but after a quick googling of your model mentioned, found references to Bushnell repairing B&L scopes with mixed reviews. But one thread mentioned this place....

      I can't recommend anyone but want to say that is a different and very cool looking rig, both rifle and scope.

        Don't have a scope guy, but if it's a matter of replicating a piece I can fire up the 3d printer or the milling machine.

              Seems they've worked on this type of scope before:
