Looking for optics cleaning kit
« on: March 15, 2019, 10:23:38 pm »
As my eyes get older I find optics on my rifles more often.
What optic cleaning kits do y'all recommend?
I'm finding my scopes increasing in quality & price so proper maintenance is becoming more important.

    I use make-up brushes to get loose dust and dirt off the lenses first.  Then I use the Zeiss brand lens cleaner from Walmart Optical department and a microfiber cleaning cloth - gently.

    Check out camera supplies. The coatings have to be protected so never wipe a dirty lens. I use a lens brush and a squeeze bulb (air) to get the solids off before wiping.

    I've read an old white t shirt is best.  Rinsed well.  Soft use gently.

    Not lookin' to be in a gunfight, but if you find yourself mixed up in one, it might be kinda nice to have a gun...
