I was installing Butler Creek flip up scope caps on my new Nikon Monarch 3.5-10x50. The one on the objective needed to be twisted a little to align it. I noticed when I twisted the cap, the whole end of the scope was twisting. In other words, from the area where it says Monarch UCC around the objective to the end of the scope looks screwed on. I took the cap back off and screwed it back on tight. Did I screw something up? It looks like the objective is just screwed on the scope. What about the gas inside the scope? I might be asking stupid questions, but I just need to know. Should the scope do this?

So what seals in the gas? It probably turned about a quarter turn before I noticed it. Focus is ok.

The housing that you turned shouldn't affect the nitrogen sealed inside.

It should be sealed behind the objective. Or at least I believe that.

Someone reading this thread correct me if I'm wrong.

 

You could give Nikon USA a call and ask them for certain.

 

I'd check my Monarch, buy it's an AO.

I called Nikon USA and the technician said it would be no problem, but that it shouldn't have been that loose on the end. He told me it would be covered under warranty if I had any issues.
