Read the thread, figured what the hell its only $39. Smooth transaction, got the reticle I ordered, no cant as reported here on arfcom, mounts nice to the 10/22. Zero'ed it in no time and was shooting targets 100yd+.

And then one day the fog rolled in. I can't see a damn thing thru the scope.

Is there some way to fix this? Or should I just trash the POS?

You could send it in for warrantee work.

Or you could use it as a target on your next range trip.

You live in TX like me, where it is hot everywhere in the summer. Some one once suggested putting the optic in the back window of your car, where it gets very hot and dry, for a few days. This usually will dry out anything within a few days time. Worth a try perhaps, although I trashcanned my last leapers scope because it would not hold zero. Try to dry it out, if it holds zero ok.

get yourself a can of Nitrogen gas, unscrew the focusing lens all the way off, hold scope verticle & dispense Nitrogen gas in it, reassemble & you should be good for a year or so fog free.

And just where in the world would an average Joe like myself be able to buy "a can of Nitrogen gas"?

Take advantage of the warranty.

I got a bad one in a batch of 3 I ordered, got a new one in a couple weeks....they all work great.

It's $39 well spent, I still believe.

EBAY....your gaseous nitrogen source.

Or go to your local airport. The A&P mechanic there will probably purge it just for grins. Just remember to disconnect the sight from the gun, first
