Gentlemen :
As I continue to thin the herd , I am offering up for sale a near NOS M1 telescopic sight in a very dry and cracking leather M3 case .
I bought this from a good friend of mine decades ago , whom I have sence lost track of and I fear he has passed .
I bought this with the intent of mounting it on my M2HB , but it has the rear sight base that doesn't take this , and I have never gotten around to finding one and mounting it up . Being as how my M2HB is on my to be thinned list , I stumbbled on this last week and thought I'd put it up for sale .

I don't know what these are worth , a quick check show them all over the spectrum up to around $1500 , but they look to have been there awhile .

I'm going to ask $1,000 shipped / ins. to the 48 because the board rules say I must have a price .
Feel free to PM me an offer ....it'll be between you and me only ....no auctions allowed here .

As always , first " I'll take it " post gets it .

Thanks , Chris

Almost a week and a half and no nibbles ?
Am I that far out of the ballpark on price ? Or is there just no intrest in these scopes ?

Since you're asking, I'll spout off my ill informed opinion ;)

Pretty small market for the scope. I have irons and a Eotech with a quick detach mount, and think it's pretty slick. From where I sit an old, fragile, not real functional scope is more of a collectors item/display piece. So, yea, I'd buy one for cheap, just for the "silly/neat" factor, but that thing is way WAY outside my price range.

Subset of a subset of a subset problem. It will take extra time to find those few people who have a M2, the fewer still who want one of those scopes, and finially the ones who are willing to part with significant coinage to but it.

But, what the heck do I know, you will probably sell it tomorrow for twice what you are asking ;)

Chris that is a beauty and I am not sure how I missed this thread? If I had not just grabbed one I would be all over this for the early Colt 50 I have. I got mine on a private deal and picked it up at the creek but the price is fair IMHO and they usually do go for more than your asking price. Very nice piece. Russ

Is this the one that fits in the rear sight dovetail? If so, I'll take it.
Yes it is Chad and a nice accessory for an early M2HB if I did not already own one I would have bought his.
