An important consideration when buying a new binocular.
Many descriptions on the internet are confusing or misleading
especially regarding the type of glass used to make the prisms.
BaK4 is expensive, top quality, Barium Crown glass.
BAK4 is cheaper Phosphate Crown glass.
Bk7 is cheaper still but still remarkedly good for the price.


Action Optics is a repair workshop that was established in 1984
and originally carried out repairs to the whole range of
photographic and optical instruments.
We now repair binoculars, telescopes astroscopes.
We no longer repair telescopic rifle sights.
Please call if you want to discuss
a problem with your optical equipment.

We can repair a binocular even if in this state.  
You may have noticed that you can’t order
or purchase directly through our Web Site.
This is because we feel the need to be sure
that we are selling you
something that will do what you want it to do and
something that has the quality
that you are expecting for the price.
We have always said that if you buy anything from 
us 
and find it unsuitable,
 you can return it and we will try again. 

We do charge a 15% restocking charge if we buy in an item
at your request that we don't normally carry in stock.
Everything on this website is usually in stock.
