Are there no more repair facilities for old steel tube Weaver scopes? I have a Model V9W.
on the same era gun. I have a late 60's vintage Model 100 Winchester in .308, plain stock (no checker-board or design cut in the stock).
The scope was bought with the gun. Was bought by my grandfather to replace my grandmother's single-shot 30-30. Guess he thought she needed something fancy.
She used it 1 year and went back to the single-shot
Well, grandma has been distributing her things in recent years and now I have this gun that is "mine" which I absolutely love. Never bought a gun for hunting - family has always had more than enough to go around. I've been using this particular gun every year for deer hunting since I was 16 and I'm now going to be 30 on my next birthday.
I know the gun and scope is old, and most people tell me to toss both of them in the corner and buy a new gun and scope. Well, it don't work that well with me because I guess I don't see a reason to toss out a perfectly good and working gun; however, it pains me to separate the scope from the gun. Not only is this still a great gun, but the gun and scope together hold great sentimental value for me.
My problem is now that the crosshairs are sticking. The up/down moves fine, but the right/left one will move only so far and then stop.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks a bunch either way...
