Hello everyone! I am new here, and this seems like a good place to have obtain assistance for my problem. Let me get to it. I had to take apart my Bushnell Custom-M 4 Power 4X32 (that's what is says on the side of the optic) to be able to clean up oil that got on the lenses. The problem is I don't remember how to put it back together... And I can't find an assembly manual any where. I'm completely new at optics and their associated maintenance. Any help would be appreciated!

It is very possible that in disassembling your scope you have purged the nitrogen in the tube assembly. If so, putting it back together would require more than your expertise and it may be more economical to look at replacing it. This is an older model and may not be worth the cost to have professionally repaired.

Alright, thank you. I didn't know about optics being filled with nitrogen, looked it up so that was something new to learn. That being said, it was definitely taken apart before I got it. Any way, thanks again.

What were you planning on mounting it on? Depending on your needs and budget there are lots of choices out there.

Many years ago I had a buddy who had traveled with me all over the USA. About forty years ago we were in Wyoming and this fellow was new to guns although he had been to Vietnam....but he really didn't know the basics of rifles and scopes, etc....

He bought a Winchester M 70 Featherweight and a Leupold 4X scope and he promptly unscrewed the ocular eyepiece right off the scope!

I was dumbstruck. 

Anyhooo....

I fear Dogger may have a point.

On a positive note, welcome! Good to have you.

If you felt like it, post a thread asking about suggestions for an optic (rifle, what you are going to shoot it at and budget are good things to include)

Best wishes,

Scrummy
Was sure I had a point when I started this post...
