    Same problem

    I've got a Deben MilPro - about 7 years old (my first scope, I think) and that did the same a few years ago. Still have it in the "melted condtion". Tried to rub a cloth over it and it was a right mess.

    There were other models that had that horrible rubberised coating.
    Seen it strip as scope slid through mounts on a 30.06.

    I had a Mil Pro and the rubber coating peeled as well, so I stripped the lot and left it in the plain black which was under the coating.:eek:
