This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    If anybody has any old Weaver scopes they no longer use because of needing repair or service please let me know what you have and if you wouldn't mind sending it to me..It costs more than a new scope to repair and refurbish these but I have a warm spot for these old dinosaurs on top of my old lever guns and would appreciate you sending them along to me to be saved one day instead of trashing..please PM or email....thanks all..CalvinMD

    I've got a old 2-7x with fine crosshairs, elevation adjustment don't work, it is still clear though. wouldn't mind keeping it, but don't know where to get it repaired or if it worth the cost. I've also got an original weaver quick point. hadn't used it on anything, are these worth anything? the quick point seems to be in working order.

    If you want to keep it the repair place for them wants $250 for a repair and refurb ...so it comes down to you REALLY wanting it for sentimental reasons..you can get a new scope of much better optics quality for that kind of money..I fix what I can on my own and save the parts for the next wounded soldier

    First Old Weaver Scopes don't cost that much to get refurbished, you just have to know where to send them,,,, and guess what? I do!

    Ok guys here is the source to get your old style Weaver Scopes rebuilt.

    Frank Ruiz is the man, and he used to work for Weaver back in the day. He charges about $35-50 to completely go thru a scope that includes complete dissassembly cleaning on everything, fixing any mechanical problems and reassembly with new o-rings and Nitrogen fill. Sometimes it even includes separation and regluing of the lenses if they are coming appart.

    He is the guy Weaver refers all of it's old scope repair work to, and that's how I found him. He's a good guy to deal with, and is VERY reasonable price wise.

    I am sending him a K2.5 which has lense separation going on, and a KV 2-5x Variable.(one of the first variables) they will be completely redone to new specs inside when done and I expect to pay less than $100 for both. Now this doesn't include rebluing or any exterior cosmetic work, and I don't know if he even offers this service. I think he has a substantial stock pile of replacement parts like knobs etc. But for a very reasonable price you can have the look of the old scope and the functionality it originally came with. Sounds good to me!

    Call him first to discuss your needs, also this is for old style Weaver scopes only, no newer stuff. I'm guessing here but I think pre 1980 is all he works on. It's pre something?, he'll tell you when you call.

    I hope this helps all of you who have old scopes you'd like to use, but need worked on. These are the types of Scopes you mount on vintage rifles! Not new ones.

    Thanks for that info Randy!...I only was aware of the guys in Oklahoma (Ironsight Inc.)that bought the old El Paso's service center stock when they closed..they charge a min of 75 bucks just to crack it open and fix only what needs repairing...for that refurb price they reblue purge with nitrogen and seal it and I think give you a change of reticle

    Got an old K4 with the fine crosshair and heavy upright post. Seems tight, took it off a 99 Savage (duh!). What would you trade?

    I have an old weaver D4 I bought about 20 or so years ago at a gun show at the JC pavillion in BG KY. I paid about 8 - 12 bucks for it and it looked like it had a scratch down to the base metal on the top. It also looked like there was a bubble in the glass, but it was a Weaver and I wanted one for a 22. I took it home - and found out that the scratch was actually paint and it scraped off with my fingernail and the 'bubble' looking thin in the glass scraped off as well. It's now on my son's marlin 22 buckaroo - and is the best 22 scope I've ever looked through. It came with dovetail mounts also and I'll never sell it. The buckaroo with that scope is the most accurate 22 rifle I've ever shot.

    Have all the Ruger rings I need....thanks anyway. What I'd like is a 2-7 average to good quality pistol scope for my 30-30 Contender barrel, or even a 4X.

    Sorry Stan...I only have a silver NcStar on my Redhawk 44mag SS..I'm actually using the scope as a torture test...so far 100+ 270gr and 300gr very stout jacketed bullet "stopper" hunting rounds have been unable to unravel the little $35.00 scope that could!

    I have a Weaver V-8 2.5 to 8 power, as you increase the power the cross hairs get bigger. Also the scope adjustments are in the mount not on the scope tube.This is Weaver base and rings.
