Scopes are mainly made from aluminium!
These are normally anodised black!
Use a mild Sodium hydroxide (drain cleaner from B & Q) dampened cloth whilst wearing marigolds, and remove said black anodised layer.

Your scopes(e) will now be silver and ready for polishing.



p.s. if you dissolve said scopes(e) or your hands, carpet, eyesight etc......don't blame me!
sodium hydroxide is NASTY stuff!
