Hello,
I was wondering if I could use a led diode in
Henholdt 4x24 scope to replace original
tritium ampule?Any commercial products
available?

Thanks,
Knutzke

They do this in the imported S.U.I.T. scopes for the AR and Fn-Fal. Not sure if the tritium/LED replacement insert is standardized for different models (probably not), but you could try DSA Arms to see who makes the LED insert for the SUIT (they still sell the SUIT I believe and may be able to help). Perhaps trijicon could replace the burned out tritium in your scope, even though it isn't their model. LAter.

Thanks Jason,I guess diy method would be the best way to go,
49 $ +taxes and postal charges are too much for my taste.
