    Default ACOG 3.5x35 – Hazy Glass

    I have a chance to buy this ACOG (3.5x35 wi .308 Reticle) at a ridiculously low price but it’s Mil-Surp and the front and rear glass have mild scratches all over making it pretty hazy. I’m not sure it can be a fruitful purchase. Because it’s mil-surp I’m told that if I send it to Trijicon they will confiscate it. Is this true? I don’t know what they would charge to service this but is it even serviceable by anyone other than Trijicon?
    I was told that some kind of glass polishing business might be able to buff it out. Would Trijicon sell the glass?

    Thoughts? Ideas?

    I would contact Trijicon, just say "I bought it used" then tell them what's wrong with it and see what they say.

    You most likely could have it buffed/polished out, but I'd see what Trijicon says first.

    Buffing out glass is bound to build in distortion. The problem is how do you buff it flat or to the original contour? Factory replacement is the only fix, IMO.
