I recently picked up a rifle that had a very nice older Weatherby Scope.  It is a 3X10 varible.  One thing I noticed is that it has a yellow tint to the lens.  Not sure if this is standard or if the coating has yellowed.  Anyone have a suggestion of who could look at it and recoat the lens if needed.

Odds are it lost its nitrogen. That would give it a yellow tint. I am not sure where you can get it re purged with Nitrogen though.
