Well, it took some time, but it is fitted.

I had some bits in my nail kit that worked a treat, though it did take a good while.  


Augh.. Why can't I add a small pic.. What's the secret.. grrr

Take things slow, as a retired gunsmith I always advise against small hand held power tools for such operations. Possibly a nail file is an acceptable tool to use, but please use it by hand and go slow, checking your work as you go.

Yes, that is good advice, I probably would have ruined the eye piece using the powered drill.

I appreciate your input.


I will report back when my task is completed.  :D

Ohhh.. thanks..

I know where to file now. I do have an electric nail file that will work well...


Thank you

I don't have any needle files.. I'll have to go to my brothers..  Did you file the eyepiece or the rubber part? Sorry to keep bugging you. I appreciate your help.
