I have a BSA Sweet 22 riflescope on my Savage. Two year old +/_. Recently noticed the barrel was getting sticky. No idea why as has not been near anything. Tried to clean with Hoppes #9 and white gas. No joy. Noticed Dawn took it off my fingers so tried that. Seemed worse if anything. Tried acetone and the whole barrel seems to be sloughing off, leaving sticky residue. Any thoughts on why my scope seems to be digesting before my eyes?

Oil and solvents over time, will break down the rubber coating that BSA and some others use to protect the exterior of the scope.
