    There is a chap, surname Rackstraw down Wellington way who can do this for you. Hoping someone else can chime in with better details.

    Andy Rackstraw, taught by Joe Jacobs. No longer in the phone book but he was living in Upper Hutt somewhere, as I recall. You could ring the Upper Hutt Gun Shop and ask if he is still doing repairs.

    I was under the impression, however, that there was someone in Auckland who repaired telescope and binoculars.
    A good shot at close range beats a 'hit" at a longer range.

    Hey Greg
    Thanks I did think of that ,but i got it in from the states ,it now looks like its been in world war 3 !!!and the freight alone would cost me more than it will cost to get it done here ,will run with Andrew,,,i just read the warranty on the bottom and it says does not cover misuse and abuse so would rule this one out unfortunately haha
