    You might try contacting the maker and ask their advice. Hopefully a low priced repair can be made at the factory or at an authorized repair station. Good luck!

    Call Simmons. Could be that all you need is the screw, which they'd probably send you free. I have a couple of Simmons scopes, and they're warranted for life.

    If the friend is responsable for it being broke,then i would dune him for it.You would think he would step forward and offer to fix or replace it.
