 I would like to post a picture of the scope but I don't know how to do it here.  I have 4x scope, tiny thing without the built in adjustments.  You adjust it through the screws on the mount itself.  It says PIC 4X on it and Japan.  No other identifying marks I can see. 

I would love some help figuring out what it is.  I will post a picture if someone tells me how.

Anyone, any opinion?  I don't even know what they call the mount system on this thing or what they call just the scope without the mounts.  Any thing that might help me with some back ground will help.  Thanks.

I never saw one or heard of one of them before.  It's a half-inch scope ( it looks like ), and we in the USA would have called it a "22 scope" back in the sixties.  Obviously the funny looking mounts are the external adjustments for the thing.  So...all we know is it's a PIC, it's Japanese, and it's 4X.  

I doubt if even Nick Stroebel would know what it is.  He wrote the book  OLD RIFLE SCOPES.  It is not in his book.
