  • WTB-A "TOKI" Green Accu-Range

    Hello,

    Just as the title says I am interested in finding a "TOKI" green 3-9X Redfield Accu-Range for a Vietnam M40 clone build. Message me or email me at Raupleminze@yahoo.com if you happen to have one for sale.

    Thanks in advance,
    Brian

        I looked around for one also, got nowhere.

        I ended up buying a 3-9X Redfield Accu-Range in gloss black. It has two original stickers on the tube one saying Accu-Range and the other Is the crosshair type.
        Not sure what I'm gong to do with them.
        I don't think they look correct on an M40 replica at least I never saw pics with them on one used in the Corps.

          Yes, I actually have a black period scope with the Accurange reticle. But I would love to have one of Toki's green scopes on the M40 instead. The rifle was just built and should be coming back any day now. I am eager to see if I can find one of these Toki scopes or find someone who is going to start doing them also, that way the rifle has the "correct" look to it.

                Knowing that I will never have the financial means to buy a "real" genuine M40 or even the real deal scope it had, I have decided to take the issue into my own hands.
                My Rem 700 has a nice Taylor stock, correct weight varmint barrel, correct scope mount and rings, correct sling swivels, seatbelt sling (not sure if that's correct but I like it better than leather) and soon to have a correct trigger.
                I have a real nice Redfield Accu Trac 3x9 scope that holds zero dead nuts on.
                I've done some homework, viewed a boatload of pics from collections and with some advice from a person on the Hide, I'm going to paint my scope. Not so much the new green color but a shade towards the sun affected / bleached green copper anodized appearance.

                Some may say it's not authentic. They are correct, however neither is a black scope, a repro from China or a Leupold if we are splitting hairs.
                I'm trying to get this as close as I can to look and shoot like a 1968 era USMC M40.
                So far the shooting is not an issue.
                The paint job will do the trick as I've experimented with various shades on an inexpensive scope before I spray my beloved old Redfield.

                A leap of faith if you will.

                When it's done in the coming month I will share my experience with all of you.
