I have never painted a scope but have painted a few rifles. I have had great luck with the Krylon fusion paint. The best advice I can give is very light coats. Take your time and you should be ok. Just be sure not to get any on the lens. I would either tape them off or maybe spread some Vasline on them. The paint will not stick to it and could be cleaned up when the paint dries. I don't think the Vasline will efect the lens but you might want to ask around. Another thing don't mount it for at least a week. Let the paint cure real good before doing so. Dale
