I'm sorry to have to write that the UK service facility is closed and
all repairs will have to be sent to the office in central London who will send
them to Portugal. This also means that spare parts are not available in the UK.

They stopped making cameras and binoculars back in April 2006 so there

to Action Optics but if spare parts are required, unless they are common
with a different make, I will not be able to complete a repair.
