Default Where can I get replacement lenses for a Weaver K2.5

Ironsights are not nice. She wants me to send her a $50 scope to get a $200 overhaul, wait 6 months, just because I need the lenses (that just screw out and I can replace).

"Well, it's nitrogen filled, mister"

No it's not. It's an old Weaver 2.5k that required the bell to be removed when you mounted it.

"You're wrong, mister".

Thank you and have a nice day.

Anyway, anyone know? Already checked fleabay, gunbroker... I'm beginning to think the only option is to buy another one.

Im afraid its cheaper to replace it.Sometimes you will find them with real rusty tubes that no one bids on.Pick it up for 30 bucks,and teach yourself how they come apart.If you screw it up your only out 30 bucks!Or find a minty one for 75 and be done.When we work with parts that are pushing 60 years old you have to expect stuff to happen.If a project ever snaps itself together for me I"ll have a heart attack!

I really want to share something 218Bee gave me.

My scope lenses were "cloudy". Looked like fungus or glue or something between the glass. I removed them and heated/boiled them in a pot for 10 minutes, took the out and pressed them together.

Wallah!! Scope went from a nice show piece to completely, 100% serviceable!!!

The scope went from 50% visibility to 95% plus!! Now, word of caution. I didn't care if I ruined this because it was a $50 Weaver K2.5 I picked up because the seller said it was "foggy". I would not recommend a heat gun unless you want to toast the glue and end up with junk. and don't submerge the scope in boiling water. You'll destroy the reticle.
This is just the lenses. I removed them, so the only thing that went into boiling water was glass in their respective rings.

Anyway, it's an alternative for you guys with vintage scopes with cloudy eye and ocular lenses.

And they can keep it. Minimum $75 + parts and 8 month wait to service a $39 scope?
