My brother gave me a scope last year that I need some info on.

 

It looks just like the 4X24 M1 or M2 model but does not have the left turret that controls the illumination. On the tube right behind the turret that controls the elevation it has the 4x6(with a degree symbol) over the IOR logo and the words MADE IN ROMANIA.

 

Anyone ever see this model before? I looked on there website and only saw the M1 and M2 model in the 4x24 models.

 

I'm just looking for the value on this

 

btw it has the dagunov reticle.

 

my camera imploded on me so no pics until my new camera arrives on Tuesday.

It has a litlle rectangualr plate screwed to the tube where the illuminatino control knob would normally be, right?

 

Try to cover the objective lens with something black so that no light enters the scope and look through the eye piece (turning the light in the room off may also be helpful.  You are likely to see that the reticle has a faint glow due to being tritium illuminated.  I believe IOR made a number of these 4x24 with tritium illumination in the 80s and 90s.  I do not exactly know if these were originally intended for a civilian market, but I have heard a rumor that there was some sort of a military contract for these and the production overrun appeared on the civilian market.

ILya- The scope is exactly as you describe. The tritium is very faint. Is it possible to replace the tritium?

What value could this bring on the market?

You'd probably want to contact IOR for that. 

 

I had a couple of these at one time, but ended up selling them.  I never asked IOR about this, so I do not know if they would do it and how much it would cost.

 

SInce the scope is probably a decade or more old, that tritium is not going to be especially bright.  On the other hand since it is a pretty thin reticle that tritium would not be very bright to start with either.

 

It still should have very nice glass, though.  I was quite impressed when I got my first IOR 4x24 and it is still one of my favourite scopes.

I really like the glass on the IOR's. I also have a 4x24 M1.

 

I might just leave it as is. Thanks for the info
