What did you use to protect the glass? I might try painting it and another old scope I have that needs a touch up. Would duracoat be fine? What did you use?
I painted my Mosin and a scope a while ago with the Krylon ultra flat camo axxe mentioned. As long as you tape off the glass and be sure you can't see any then it should work just fine it wasn't hard to do at all

I painted mine with krylon too just make sure you remove the bolt and put painters tape on everything you don't want sprayed plus stuff a rag in the mag well and receiver it was nerve racking but it came out nice I think
