First post on this forum!

I have a used Savage 12FV in .204 Ruger that came equipped with a Meopta Artemis 3000 3-9x42 scope with #4 reticle.  I believe this scope has a 30mm tube, and to my eye appears to have fantastic glass & light transmission (my other scopes include Nikon Monarch & ProStaff, Leupold VX-III, & Bushnell Elite 3200 and Burris Fullfield II).

I've swapped a 223 barrel onto this rifle and while this scope appears VERY nice, I'd love to have more magnification on this rifle for target & varmint shooting - maybe a variable up to 24x. 

Seeing that Artemis 3000s NIB are roughly $500 on eBay with 1" MeoPros going for $400, and knowing that my scope has no box/papers/covers and slight scope ring marks...I'm wondering what I might realistically expect to get selling this scope.

Thanks...

Welcome to O.T. BoilerUP. Might your name have something to do with where you live and what you do?
If you want an idea other than eBay, try the SWFA appraisal form.

After consideration, I've decided to move this scope along.

I see I can't post in the Classifieds section yet since I don't have 50 posts (I understand the logic behind this)...but I'd like to get $400 shipped for the scope.

I don't want to break any forum rules so I won't post pictures here unless told its okay, but I will say there's a rub on the elevation cap and a rub on the objective that are cosmetic in nature, along with some slight ring marks.

Not to be harsh, but you seem to "understand the logic behind this". then why are you going ahead and trying to sell it here before you can put it in the proper section.  

Rules: I think you should read them if you do not want to break them. You are trying to sell it on here and you can only do that in the trading post section. If you understand the logic behind it why not listen to that logic. 

please be patient and you can get enough posts to sell it on here. There is a section in almost anything goes to boost you post count. If you want to know what it is worth do as those have told you fill out the form to SWFA and they will tell you.

I apologize; I looked at the Trading Post rules, but not the total forum rules.
