What should I do with the cast aluminum pieces that have areas of corrosion?

  • Ignore it and put it back together, by the time the corrosion matters you'll be dead.

  • Remove the corrosion with a dremel or abrasive, then paint the two pieces.

  • Apply an aluminum corrosion inhibitor and then paint.

  • Throw it out all out, how much crap do you really need?

I'm an NRA certified RSO. Because of that I bring everything others forget, because I'm "the good guy who helped me RSO", not the "Range Nazi."
A scope is one of them!

Sometimes you dont take stuff for yourself, You take it to help new shooters.
Or, you can just abuse them, because need a little more lead in your pencil, If you get my drift!
+1 on that. I'm also a certified instructor and RSO, have been for many years. I can't tell you the number of times I've been on duty and got someone straightened out sighting in, a scope or mount problem, sometimes a human headspace problem or maybe a new shooter that needs a little instruction. Bring all your tools and tricks, eventually you use them, though maybe not for yourself.

Wilburbean, if you cannot get that old Herter's scope working to your liking, there is another option.

Send it back home, to Waseca where I will add it to my collection of old tools and assorted Herter's stuff. :)
