Recommended Posts

Canned air.


Leupold lens pin brush.


Canned air again.


Q-tip and 91% isopropyl alcohol.


Canned air again.


Leupold lens pen (graphite cup end).


Soft lens cleaning cloth.


Takes longer to describe it than it takes to clean the lens.

After you get it clean, take a q tip with a bit of rem oil and swirl it on the lens.  It won’t interfere with optical quality and it creates a thin film that will wipe clean with a cloth or q tip.   Make sure to reapply after you wipe it.  Works with tactical light lens too.

I called C more to ask how to clean powder residue off the lens... they told me to use Hoppes #9 on a q-tip .. then clean it with some liquid lens cleaner.. it works..

I did the same but now I use Weapon Shield Solvent
