Hello, wondering if you guys could help me out.

I am not an optic expert by any means, but I am going to an auction this weekend and I saw a riflescope listed, but I cannot tell what it is.
Can you help me identify the manufacturer at least? Ignore the bushnell box as I dont believe it is one. Not sure why they put that there.



Also, I might have a chance to get my hands on a Swarovski Habicht 4x32. Not sure the year but I am guessing 80s-90s. If in good shape, what would be a reasonable price with no warranty (no original paperwork)?

Thanks guys, I appreciate any info you can provide me.

It looks like a Banner to me. I have 2 of them. This is a poor picture to identify from. I am guessing that this is from an online auction. What makes you think that it does not go with the box?

 Yep,poor pic. Could be a Tasco to. But then the three knurled rings on the ocular could make it an early Redfield.  Bushnell Dusk & Dawn scopes (what the box says) have an illumunated reticle BUT I can't see if the switch knob is on the ocular end or not.

Thanks for the replies guys.
They have other pictures of riflescopes like Burris Fullfield IIs on the same box.
It could be a banner, but the ones Ive seen typically have them labeled with lettering on the scope. It probably is old but it doesn't seem like the lettering would have worn off.

Its an online auction for pre-bidding, but the live auction is this weekend. I will have a chance to preview it, but that is the only picture available at this time.

Thanks again, more comments welcome.

Any ideas about the Swarovski I mentioned?

  Can't help much with  Swarovski info other than I believe they were a series of 1" tubed scopes designed for the American market.  Of course it is a "Swarovski" so I'd be checking it out if I were you.
 
  By the way WELCOME to OT!!

Thanks 300S&W. This is a great forum you guys have here.

From my research, some of the newer models for the Habicht line have an "A" that might distinguish it as aluminum. Im guessing that means this one is steel unless Im wrong on that. I imagine it probably still has quite a bit of value still.

Anyways, Im excited to check it out and look through the glass! Cool
