I have had this ARTMPC scope for many years, I pulled it out contemplating using it on a AR15 300 blackout I just built. two problems I found.

1. The base has a weaver type mount and the rifle is a monolithic Picatinny rail. Is there a sane way to adapt this? I have tried to find  1913 rail to Weaver adapter to no avail, even called Weaver and they are clueless.

2. the lens is getting cloudy is there a way to clean and reseal these or is there a COMPETENT scope repair place, i called three and no answer to mail box is full for weeks on end.   

I don't want to loose this old scope to a mantle piece..

Thank you for looking at this...

The lens being cloudy is most likely because the seals have failed and allowed oxygen and moisture to get inside. You'll have to send it to someone competent to repair it.

actually fungus is a major cause of cloudy scopes this is why I am worried as it eventually etches the glass after it east through the coatings. Yes seals allow the fungus in...

Sent them a message but I think they don't take any military scopes due to backups and only one expert working on them..

The scope experts said the glass De-laminated which has happened in this brand/model scope before.
makes perfect sense. The price @$160 for a complete rebuild, new seals, glass repair ect is pretty good. So It's on the way, well worth the 8 to 9 months time delay I guess.

Now to find a way to mount it to a 1913 rail.... hmmm how will this get done?
