    Years ago I sent a Weaver (steel tube) to a company & had a new reticle put in it. Might have been in Missouri? Does anyone know the name of the Company? Thanks

    WSRS in El Paso was the place to go. Frank Ruiz has closed the place AFIK.

    Ironsight inc will repair classic Weavers for 75 bucks a pop plus $10 shipping.

    Mash the link.

    Thanks- probably not worth putting $95 in an old steel tube 6x.

    The other place used tocharge 35. I guess it would be worth it if you were recreating a clssic.

    The scope looks and functions like brand new. The only problem is it can take up to 9 months. Mike Sharkey, DC

    Doug, If you really want to get rid of it, I'll take it. Otherwise,how long will it be before you need the scope again?? Based on that and the fact that you have a scope that is probably better than the market can replace and the cost will be less than $100. Personally, I'd go for it. Call everyone mentioned here and get a price and delivery.
