If you use a ring clamp around the cracked sleeve does the bend in the mount plate seem to realign and any stiff feeling lessen?

If so, an epoxy glue or plastic weld THAT CAN'T MIGRATE INTO THE INNER LENS may seal the crack. If you can do that while disassembled, all the better.

If you're satisfied with the optical results and the feel of operation, take a pragmatic approach and live with the situation.

Sometimes we tend to worry about the esthetics rather than the mechanical and optical characteristics - a nice habit when you can afford it.
