So my advice is wrap a bit of the shirt around the black parts and get them to go purple also as I like the color it looks smick.
Might be worth looking at what other chemicals may be in your closet .
The best thing to store a scope in is the box it came in .
So if you send it back don't tell them about the T shirt . Say it was stored in the original box.
I am not familiar with the term smick, but it sure does look unique, all purple except the black knobs and the black "caps" on both ends. Perhaps, maybe
I'll just keep it as is, it does add some caracter. They'd probably have to totaly dissassemble the scope and re-blue the tube to fix it (just assuming here).
No other chemicals in the closet at all. I have (had) other scopes in that closet. A couple other Nightforces', a few Leupolds, and a couple of Huskemaws; but this one is the only one that has changed color.
The color change is really quite distinct. The photo doesn't do it justice. It's almost a chamelion thing, different lighting makes the purple brighter or darker, depending.
