  • Unertl scope question

    I purchased a Unertl scope and I'm curious as to when it was made?
    S/N 8739 and it still has the J Unertl in one line and the serial number on the second line, no company logo.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    may be able to help.

    He also services/has parts for these.

    If you get in touch with him get us both a second Spring stop ring with thumb screw for three quarter tube to give our scopes the authentic USMC look.

    "...But they would never find anything to beat the old Springfield ...the long sleek streamline, very slim but with potent bulges, all in the just exactly right places to give it that pugnaciously forward-leaning, eager look that marked the Springfield. Beside it, the M1 looked like a fat old man puffing with a lack of training...the two most beautiful things made in America were the ax-handle and the clipper ship? ...they should have added one more thing: The Springfield '03 rifle..."

      You can try and gauge it by this. Looks like 1944-45. This is just a small cut of the file I will attach the whole thing below.

        Thanks for the info on the spotting scopes. I have 3 MGFL's.

      Surprised they produced any civilian scopes in that time frame.

          Very nice.

          Tell/show us more.

          There are a few of these in various stages of build right now.
