I have a Sako .222 with a Nickel Marburg scope. It is about sixty years old. The scope has fine hairs vertical and horizontal to a center dot. The horizontal wire is broken and lies curled up in field of view. Where can I send this scope for repair? Thanks. Butch

I think you will find that the B. Nickel Marburg scopes and the Gerhardt Nickel scopes are quite different.  They haven't been imported for a number of years.  The B. Nickel scopes that I own are of reasonable quality I have a 4x with a #1 reticle and 4-10x with a very small dot.  The variables have front focal plane reticles and are not constantly centered.    The dot is nearly invisible below about 6x.  It is about 1" at 10x. 
There were a lot of small optics manufacturers in Germany of which B. Nickel was one.  Hertel & Reuss is another that is also owned by Gerhardt Nickel.  They manufactured the first Weatherby scopes.  The ones which have the windage and elevation in the same turret and focus in the second turret. 
Is your scope a rail or conventional type and if so what is the tube diameter.  My 4-10x is a 27mm tube. Sort of hard to find rings.

If you search you will find several posts on Nickel Scopes.  The above is an answer that I posted to one a while back.
