I have taken a few scopes to bits to do repairs or alterations, I have never seen one suffer from any fault due to it not being full of what ever gas they claim is in there, I just warm the whole scope before closing it to ensure the air in there is dry. Because of this I have never suffered misting or steamed up lenses so I wouldn't worry about any gas escaping or thinking it will be knacked if opened.
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!
