I sure as heck wouldn't glue anything to one of my scopes. Are you sure you had the right size? Once I put them on my scopes, and I use them on all my scopes, they are pretty tight to get off. If you insist on using some adhesive, use something quasi-temporary that will just add grip like rubber cement that isn't marring and can be removed later.
