Took the old Stevens 416 out of the cabinet the other day, and found the vertical wire broken on its 6x Unertl RF. Can and have searched the web for a shop, but looking for a recommendation based personal experience before I pick up the phone. Thanks!

You might try the Weaver Scope Repair service. I have had nothing but good luck with them over the years, and they fix alot of vintage glass, not just Weavers.

I would check with Parsons Scope Service, they strictly work on vintage scopes, I am sure they would be able to fix it for you....

You can also try TK LEE, they will install a new reticle in most any vintage scope....

If neither of them work out, I would contact Bill Ackerman owner/operator of Optical Services Co. and see if he is still doing work..... [email protected]


All of the above are very well respected companies/people in the vintage scope market, as well as reticle change outs for silhouette shooters etc.....

Thanks to both of you. Nice to have the contact info in a single document, that will definitely get archived.
Much appreciated!

Yes, but it has nothing to do with the old company.......I don't believe they service, nor have any parts for the old scopes.....
