Howdy guys.

I'm wanting to sell a mid 60's production Nickel Supra 4-10  "x42... I think" rifle scope.

It's got a little surface rust where the rings were on it in a closet for 30 years, but the glass is still bright and it still holds dead on true.

I looked up Nickel in Germany and emailed them about perhaps them knowing a collector that might be interested, but they really didn't say much other than offer to refurbish the scope to like new at my expense. "which I don't see it needing anyway"

I'm asking $150.00 for the scope and will give the buyer a couple of weeks to look it over good provided they pay with paypal so we're both protected.




PM me if you want more pics

A look through the glass. 


The camera and I are getting along a little better, but it still hates me. The pic above is about as good as I was able to do.


Still got it, still asking $150 Yep, Thought So

neilbilly, what size is the tube, 1 " or 30mm? What did Nickel quote to refurbish?
What is the weight, and how much mounting length between the bells? And I assume the reticle is FFP (gets bigger as you dial up magnification)?
 
Thanks, Texas

Tube is blued steel, 1 inch.

Nickel pretty much said to make it like new it would be about 100-200 euros plus me paying international shipping both directions depending on all that needed done. "would depend on what they needed to do to it, they wanted the scope in hand before they set a price which involves paying international shipping both directions" It's usable as is, it's just too heavy mounted on the gun for my 15 year old daughter, and she didn't like the German cross hairs. I put a Nikon on the gun it came off of and she's a lot happier.

They have a good reputation but are insanely high priced. "Could be well worth the money, but not to me"

About 5.25 inches between bells. Yup FFP Wt. dunno, more than a pound I'm sure. Pretty sure it's 42mm on the bell.

Hate to disagree with Mr. Stroebel, but it is actually 12.75 inches long. Whistling


I'm actually leaning towards sending it to Germany to be refurbished. That French rust on the tube has got to go. Big Smile "and a good cleaning by a pro wouldn't hurt any"

neilbilly, I know it's your scope, but I would definately use " as-is". Not only will they charge you the shipping both ways, but unless they will take a credit card, you will have to pay a bank to wire transfer the funds, + the bank is going to add a rate to the already expensive Euro (today about $1.35) most banks charge  .05 per euro. And lastly, shipping is going to be around $50 each way, and Customs is going to charge you 14% based on the value of the repair service + a broker fee ( $65) and a bond fee ( $45 ).
 If you really want a new finish, get some of the excellent Dura-coat refinishers to do it for about $70.
Just my 2 cents.
Derek
