Bought a storage over the weekend for $75 and what did I find... A Genuine Unertl 10x Tactical scope. Was told this was the same scope Unertl made/used by USMC. Manufactured in the USA! Scope is in near mint condition. Both caps and mounts included along with original user manual and beautiful case marked Unertl Opt. Co.This is not a USMC issued scope but is identical to those used by them. Not sure of the real value, but I know these don't go for cheap. If you are familiar with these scopes or interested, please email me. I live in Portland, Or. Thanks, Nick

It really depends on when it was made. After Mr. Unertl died, quality really dropped off. But it by it self is worth the 75 you paid for the locker...I am sure others will be able to tell you more.

The 10x Unertl was produced after most of our involvement (USMC) in Nam..info I have is none ever made it over..we continued to use a few of the Realist and Redfield/Leatherwoods.
The 10x began to appear at Quantico in 1974/1975 and very small numbers were passed to Treasury for the exec. protection details sniper/counter snipers.
If you want a rare Unertl try to find one of the special models made for the Uniformed Secret Service Sniper/Counter Sniper in the special 7mm Mag they used..if you ever do find one..well all that bad S-t you hear about the Feds just might come true..very bad S-t.
Anyway, you won't find a 10x that really did serve in Nam..some did make it to Lebanon and a few were unofficially used in Latin America but none in Nam.
Thanks
