Re: 1970's weaver v7. Worth fixing?
Don't know what the current owners of "Weaver" will do but I sent my old 'K 4' back in the, I think the 1980s, and they re-gased it to stop the fogging and charged nothing! Send it in and letter to explain problem. Good LUCK.
(bought it used on my 1959 .270Win F/W M-70 back in june 1964).
