Telescopic Sight

how do i grease my leupold scope?

i have a leupold vx3 2.5-8 mounted on my 30-06 BAR safari and the zoom adjuster is really hard to turn. i was recently passed to me as a heirloom and i would like to use it but with the scope zoom being so hard to turn i wouldnt be able to zoom in on a deer while looking. what should i do?

Telescopic sights are one of the few mechanisms that should not be lubricated. Lubricants will vary in their compounds and could have agents in them that will actually destroy the seals that keep the moisture out of the scope (Leupolds are nitrogen filled).

As another poster has pointed-out. The ONLY way to accomplish this with complete satisfaction is to send the scope back to Leupold to be cleaned and adjusted. Your scope is worth about $275 on eBay right now. So spending $50 to get the thing serviced should not be a big deal.

Actual street price retail on your scope is closer to $400 today.
