What model do you have?

Well, I don't know about Kowa in the UK but here in the US Kowa will clean a scope for about $150.

I once sent them a TS-2 (Older Kowa) They did a decent job overall.

Since then, I've learned how to service and clean the older scopes myself. Almost criminal to pay anyone to clean an old Balscope or Kowa TS series.....They are very simple in design.

If it's nitrogen filled and waterproof like any of the newer TSN types I'd strongly suggest just sending it to Kowa.

Gary Hawkins is a top repairer of binos and scopes and specifically mentions Kowa in the list of brands he handles. Don't forget to tell him which model it is.
