I'm looking for a scope that would be similar to the old Lyman Alaskan, which is similar to the original No. 32 British sniper scope. This will be used on a No.4 Mk 1 or 2 Enfield to make a Faux Sniper. Know where to get all the other parts and pieces I need but the scope has me a bit baffeled as to what would be close. Not looking to spend my arm and leg either!

 

Thanks all in advance!

I'm not aware of any 7/8" scopes in production anywhere.  I've seen them on ebay from $120 to $250 depending on condition and occasionally in Sarco ads www.sarcoinc.com plus they sometimes have M84 scopes as well.  They might be able to help you source one as they deal with M1C Garands, which I think came originally with the M81/M82 Lyman scope.  I think a better alternative, though less-correct, would be a Weaver K4 type scope.

It doesn't have to be an exact 7/8" match or even a close repo. just something that will at least look something like the original. More modern glass is better!

Any ideas?
