Need matte black lens paint - help!


Anyone have a handle on sourcing the matte black paint that's used on lenses or a reasonable substitute?

Any help appreciated

Many thanks

Why not post a pic of the damage you want to repair? Extensive or spot touch-up. A Jiffy marker can work for that.

Go to an outdoor sporting goods store and pick up "scope paint". It's made for touching up rifle scopes.
