Posp crack in lens. Dangerous?

Recommended Posts

So I bought a POSP for a Mosin about a year ago from kalinka.. but it wouldn't fit the rock solid industries scope mount so I put it aside for a year. Found a use for it and put it on a rifle, today I was messing around with it and noticed a very small blemish (maybe crack, maybe chip) in the very bottom right of sight picture. It appears to be on the front lens but I can't feel it with my finger.


Basically, I doubt Kalinka is going to take it back a year later, and it doesn't affect the ability to use the scope, but will shooting potentially cause risk to my eyes? I'm tempted to slap it on my 5.45 (currently it's on a .308) and hipfire 100 rounds and see if it worsens.


Any thoughts/suggestions?

If it is on the objective, you are probably ok. I've seen Aimpoints with busted objective lenses that still worked and were still being used in combat until they could be replaced in the rear.

if it is a crack and it goes all the way through the lens, the nitrogen might have all escaped. which means you might have issues with it fogging up on the inside from taking the scope through drastic temperature changes, ie. hot day to air condition building.

thanks for the responses. I cant actually locate the crack by touch or plain sight, only by looking through the scope and down. Maybe I could put some resin on the general area or something.
