I hunt in Wyoming so I understand your dilemma. I recommend using running tap water to take off the clay and mud. Let dry and repeat if you need to. That will allow the bonds the clay and mud have on your scope to loosen and fall away between rinses. This will save your scope's finish. When you get ready for your lenses take extra care! I use ammonia free towelettes i get at the local electronics store to leave a streak free shine on my lenses. Using ammonia or alcohol will break down and ruin the fog proof and water proof coatings you can enjoy with your optic now. Otherwise that's the best recipe for getting your optic back to 100%

Moisture My binocs got wet. I dried them ASAP by keeping them warm in the sun, but there are several water residue spots on internal lenses. Anyone know how to clean?

You have to open each side ( nikon travelite covers just unclip ) to get to the 4 prisms. Once opened to clean make sure you do not break the glue that holds down the prisms ( move the prisms in their seats and your alignment is out ). Clean with window cleaner and isopropanol to finish.

I have a Winchester 7600 from the late 60's that I have never fired. I have just stored it here at home and never really had a use for it. I do not even know what type of ammo it takes. Can anyone tell me?

I think you will find that you have a Remington 7600 pump action rifle chambered in a Winchester calibre round. There may be something inscribed on the barrel with Winchester on it. The numbers with the word Winchester EG: .308 will denote the calibre. Just like a .38 revolver will have .38S&W on it regardless who manufactures it. The name S&W indicates the original patentee of the round. So your Remington 7600 is chambered for a Winchester patent round. The number with it such as 308 or 243 will tell you what ammo it takes.

I have a Bausch & Lomb Trophy Riflescope Balvar Years ago it fogged up while hunting on a cold wet day. I sent the scope in for repairs and got it back, put it back on the rifle and about the third time I hunted with it, it fogged up again. Its been in a box for a few years and I would like to use it again if it can be fix.

Most things can be fixed again however at what cost??? the scope should be striped down and cleaned new "O" rings fitted to keep out the damp and then re-gased,,,,pricy job? you could undo the small screw on the scope body and try warming the scope up to force out the damp air inside it then get some "NITROGEN gas" not co2! and blow that into the screw hole to push out any damp air left in it out and to re-gas the scope,,,,it may work it may not,,,,the nitrogen gas can be found at a camera shop check on the gas first but i think its called "dust away or dust off!" for blowing out camera bodys dont start a gale inside your scope just jentely blow in the gas

Leica ? Disassemble/ Clean / Reassemble

You're best option is a pair of Canon IS binoculars. I am willing to trade you a 10x30 IS near mint in the box for the Leicas plus $100. James (718)578-5231

Water spots inside lenses

On the whole, I'd advise against dismantling binoculars yourself. Unlike most other optical devices, alignement is really important because you need to feed the same image into both eyes. If you're going to end up paying someone to realign the instrument, you might as well get them to do the cleaning at the same time. A.
