If you are talking about the Unertl 10X as from the current auctions US Optics did refurbs for the Marine Corps. They would likely be able to service your scope. Just be careful regards the USO mod and new spring install if you are concerned about the scopes Unertl purity.

There is currently an order pending for new production Unertl Marine Corps 10X scopes from USO here....

For reticle wire contact Dan Stangarone via email at ds1911@verizon.net. Dan
sells wire in two diameters (0.0015” medium and 0.0005” fine). As of this
writing the price is $15.00 per 10 ft length, which should last the average shooter
several lifetimes or many attempts to get it right. Send him a self addressed
stamped envelope (SASE) for shipping. Dan says it’s annealed tungsten reticle
wire and is very strong. It shows up jet black and is easy to work with. If you’re
uncertain on the wire diameter, I suggest you go with the 0.0015”, but ask Dan for
his recommendation.

For standard or custom reticles, contact T. K. Lee Company (http://www.
scopedot.com), 1282 Branchwater Lane, Birmingham, AL 35216, (205) 913-5222,
info@Scopedot.com. The company can replace the reticle with a standard
crosshair or, as stated on their website, they can, “Replace the crosshairs in your
scope with a custom LEE DOT reticle, the quickest, most natural and instinctive
aiming reference there is. We can install a dot or dots in most scopes, sized and
spaced to your specifications.”

I wouldn't send a Nerf scope to Parson's, but that's just my opinion. Others may have their opinion, but once again, I am entitled to mine. I know many of you probably had good work done, but maybe they just don't understand M84s. Hence, why I do them now.

I bought quite a bit of wire from Dan, he does a very careful job spooling it for you , but you can buy SPOOLS of wire on E-bay for a very cheap price, if you need a lot. I do, so it made sense for me. I picked up 24,000 ft. of .00075 stainless steel wire for $30. I also bought 5000 ft of .0010, 6000ft of .0012. All of them combined was under $150. It's cheap enough to give away, but the labor needed to measure and wrap it is a pain, and I give credit to Dan for doing this. I wouldn't.

Ironsights does good work, it's just a wait. At 10 months, I was told I could pay $25 for "expedited" work. I have my opinion on that "offer", but you take it as you may. Mix Sexton's work is good, so that is all that matters. Plus, he's the ONLY ONE with ART II parts.

Ok, getting to the Unertls...
Since my last post on this thread, I've purchased 2 origins Unertls and 1 USO MST 100.
I've done minor (well, what I consider minor) repair work on one. I'm currently waiting on delivery of a broken scope as I won't feel so bad if I mess it up opening it up. I've opened up the ocular end on these. 1st and foremost, non-serviceable reticle. 2nd focal plane laser cut (or stamped out, like a circuit board) item that is glued in. Turret design is pretty straight forward, but a bunch of compression springs and ball detents. Don't take them off if you've been thinking about it, you'll lose those little ball bearings and have to replace them. Turrets will not operate correctly without them. Once my scope arrives, I will remove the objective end and and get to the cone shaped erector. I like the fact that the reticle is not part of the erector like the Redfield and other scopes of that type.

Toki is this a Unertl USMC 10X/MST 100 you are taking apart? Any chance you are taking some pictures to post? I appreciate seeing pics of your work. It allows me to see what I want to learn without actually doing something bad with one of my scopes.

I've taken the turret assemblies completely apart numerous time now. As a matter of fact I a swapped the elevation assembly on my USO MST 100 onto my Unertl MST 150 (which started life as an MST 100) Taken the objective end apart. Ocular eyepiece apart. Here's the problem. It looks like these scopes have glued in printed reticles. I'm looking for a source. The scope has a relati vely simple design. It also doesn't look like it was designed to be nitro purged. You can screw off the eyepiece and obj lens, which is a no-no for a sealed scope..
