Re: How To Clean Your Rifle Scope By Gary Garnett
Thanks for an informative article.
I appreciate the hands on testimonial.
I'll be picking up an outdoorsmans cleaning kit right away.
My scopes get a LOT of weather and pine woods action.
I use scope covers and the rain guard covers to insure that I don't get any balsam sap on my lenses.
Of course I wind up with the crud all over my covers...
My rangefinding binos get pretty dirty too.
Although I have never used anything other than eyeglass cleaners on my optics I do not understand what the concern is regarding household cleaners like Windex.
I assume it's about the alcohol?
Can someone offer a reality check on "lens pens" and the "scope dope" products?
I use a Leupold lens pen to remove dust particles but I don't trust the scope dope.
My concern is that it will trap particles and scratch my lenses.
