Hi all.
 
I am the happy owner of some old guns, all from the 20`s and up to -44.
I do hunt with them and enjoy that a lot. Guns from a time when quality was the main thing, not the price.
But, sadly I use modern scopes....Sadly.
Thinking a LOT about getting some scopes from the right time.
BUT, but, how are a scope from the same time? How well are the adjustment on them? Accurate?
 
Any one who use it?
 
All help is good for me, I am new.
 
Thanks for looking

Look at some of the 50's steel tubes from Weaver.  K2.5, K4 the KV's.  The war2 sniper scopes I have are very usable if in good condition.

Thanks for the reply. 
But, I am more seeking a scope pre -45, I have two guns, a Mauser and a drilling, I like to have scopes one from the same time, or close. 

What sniper scope you have? How are they, compared with a scope from the 70`-80`s?
Sounds like you have more than one...Lucky.
