Condition : The scope is in very good to excellent condition as far as appearance goes. Everything that is for sale is shown in the photos, the case, batteries and other cables are not present. All hardware is in great shape and the overall finish is in excellent condition. It is slightly dusty from sitting around for a while in the basement. The metal retains original finish and has little to no wear. The lenses are free of chips of cracks as far as I can tell. I do not have the entire unit, so I cannot tell if the sight works. The rubber eye cup is pliable and not cracked.
Don't miss this opportunity to get this rare M3 Sniperscope for your M1 Carbine.
