View Full Version : 03A4 Scope Repairs
I have 3 scopes that are in need of repair and I have had zero luck in getting any type of response from Iron Sight.
I have emailed them twice and called them 3 times since last May. The voicemail box is always full and they apparently don't check their email. I have tried the second phone number on their website and left messages there with no response.
I have heard that they do great work, but I can't get ahold of them. Anyone had any luck with them?
Anyone have additional options to use that worked well? I have an M73B1,
M84 and a Pecar variable that I need worked on.
the number i have is 918-445-2001.
Mike has been busy with the buyout of Weavers parts inventory,
Thanks for the information. That is the number that I have called. No one picks up and then it tells you the inbox is full so you can not leave a message.
I will try again over the next few days.
Anyone else have luck getting in touch with them?
Chuck, have you perfected installing the scope cross hairs? I have 2 weaver 330's that are in need of new cross hairs.
since the scope i was playing with was stolen at the last gunshow....
the answer is no....:eusa_wall:
ill try another, im sure it wont be too much of an issue..
however, i dont have the skill or tools to repair lens or lens seperation..

Is theft a serious problem at gunshows?
every now and then,,
last shoplifter i had was 73 years old, stole over 400.00 worth of Browning parts.
when asked if i wanted to press charges, i told the officer.
just take the cuffs off him. ill take out back, and warm him up a bit.
save the tax payers a bit of change, and he will never ever steel from me again.
the old guy just started shaking, and offered to pay for the parts..
i said at 73 he had been doing for a while, and that he prolly wont ever stop.
so i signed him off, went to his court date, they slaped his hand, and gave him probation.
the guy had over 20 prior convictions for petty theft.
3 years ago,. i had a 1903 stolen out of my rack on dealer day at the Colorado Collectors show,
anyone can buy a dealer day pass for 50.00 the side doors are open for anyone to walk in and out as other late comers show up and set up on Friday.
since then security has been beefed up,
i do 20 shows a year, and about once a year i get something lifted off my tables.
the guns that have walked out are 1903 springfield. 91 Russian Nagant,
2 Remington 870 shotguns, they were later recovered at the home of the promoters sons house during a meth raid.
have yet to se anything from the other rifles.
and numourus small parts and bits..i stopped counting those.
once i stopped carring AR, AK and other assault rifle parts the parts stopped walking off the table.
strange, i never sold one AK part, and many went off the table...same thing for SKS stuff.
the saggy pants bunch stop walking by my tables as well.

Thanks, Chuck. I hate thieves with a passion. Lowest form of scum on earth in my book.
just a note.
all the guns that were stolen, were done before or after the show closed to the public.
the Nagant was stolen early Sat, morn, at a Cheyenne show with the sliding doors open,
only people i thought were in the show were other vendors.
2 cowboys were petting the 5 Nagants i had on the table, and looked like they knew what they were looking at,
i went over to BS with Nick Daily, and later that day, i noticed i had only 4 Nagants on my table.
so they picked one up, and spread the other guns so it wouldnt look like one was missing.
i had 49.00 into those rifles, so it wasnt a big loss.
but a thief is still just a punk anyway.
to catch crooks. First , at AWC , we had an old soda machine outside with a "nose" on it. Under the "nose" was two spikes to open your can from pre-pop-top days. Cleaned those off , flipped the can up-side-down and would poke two holes on the bottom. Drink the soda , refill with ice cold water , flip back right-side-up on a lab counter. Would look like an unopened can. Usually with-in ten minutes it would be gone , and someone would be cussing with a big wet spot on thier lab coat or pants:banana100:.
Second , a church printed a bunch of fliers on repentance. When folded , they looked like a $5 bill. I put them on my store counter on OUR side of the counter , sticking out from under books,keyboards,etc. Went through about 50 of them in less than a week. Wished I could have seen the look on thier faces when they tried to spend them:evil6:.
Back on topic.
Anyone have any information SCOPE REPAIRS?
:icon_redface: Call Ed Baldwin at 406-857-2354. He redid a M84 for me 2-3 years ago. Nice guy to deal with.
I think Ironsight may be the only/best game in town.
I contacted them about ten months ago to repair a 1960s vintage Weaver V12 and the time was at least six months.
Busy folks. Keep trying?
Thanks for the information gentlemen!!
Received a call back today. Nice folks, but long wait times. 6 to 7 month wait to get scopes back.
Wow!! Wished they had responded back in May. I would be getting the scopes back right about now.
try contacting Dan for your 03A4 scope repairs, he did mine a few years back and I could not be happier, BTW turn around was about one week
