    Hi O-Family. I have a pair of FMJ+ Scars with G30 Iridium lenses but the lenses are crap and the nosebombs are missing. Is it impossible to find OEM replacement lenses and nosebombs? I don't want to needlessly post a thread on the forum if it's a waste of forum member's time. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

    Not impossible. But nearly. As someone who actively collected all the scars a few years ago, I never saw scar nosebombs come up and rarely lenses. People were buying pairs just to steal the nosebombs if I remember correctly

    See, that's what I thought @the_owl. I don't want to put a thread out there only to bump it over and over again. That's a waste of my time as well as other forum member's time, at least in my opinion. It's also a waste of forum space where there could be a more important post. I also don't want to pay some ridiculous amount of cash to replace both parts. Hopefully someone will see this post and a spot of luck will strike, but for now, it'll remain a discussion.

    I might be able to help you. I have an old pair, lenses are probably crap, but rubber might be ok. I'll let ya know some time this week.

    Thanks @Krank i appreciate it. I think the lenses are going to be the hard part. The G30 iridium for that particular frame aren't widely available. My fear is that I may have to go aftermarket but I really do t want to. Any help is muck appreciated!

    OEM is going to be very difficult. Good luck to you.

    Thanks @headpatrolman. I've had this particular pair since its release so its seen many years and many miles. At this point I have no urgency to complete this "pet project" so I'll just keep searching. I think Linegear makes a similar aftermarket lens but at this point since I'm in no rush I'll probably just keep my eyes peeled here on the forum and put out some feelers.
