Cannot attach tripod plate to scope - stripped receptacle
I have had a Minox scope for about 1 year, and recently noticed that I am having difficulty keeping the tripod plate attached to the scope. Just fiigured out that the receptacle screwhole in the scope body is stripped for the first 2 threads. The threads deeper inside seem to be fine, but the screw is not long enough to grasp these. Does anyone know if longer screws are available to attach the tripod plates, or is this something I need to have Minox fix? Thanks!
