I purchased a  1954 Savage 99 today on gunbroker.  It has this scope on it, but the lister did not know the make.   Would appreciate help IDing what I have here.   To my untrained eye, it looks like it may be a Weaver, but I have not idea of model or potential value of the scope.  The scope is mount on a Stith moutn.  Thx in advance.

Early Weaver K series depending on the power, could be a K 2.5 or a K 4. Made inEl Paso Texas.

Here's a Weaver KV.  Does this match up?  I think the turrets are different.   





Here's a Lyman Challenger....

In 1987 I ran across a beautiful Winchester Model 70 30-06.  It was a four digit serial number...14XX something!  A Lyman scope in Stith mounts.  

It was expensive.  I didn't have any money.  

They wanted $400 for it.   Stare

Thanks for the info folks.  Based on your leads,  I've been doing a lot of goggling, so thought I'd share what I learned. It is a Weaver K4.  Weaver introduced the K4 in 1947. The initial model had uncovered adjustment knobs with spring clicks, like the one on my rifle. Later K4 scopes had the covered adjustments. I found a few vintage weaver ads. The initial price was $45. 1947, 48 and 49 ads show the scope with the uncovered adjustment knob; 1951 ad shows a design change with covered adjustments. I couldn't find an ad for 1950. So I've narrowed the age of the scope to between 1947 and 1950.
