I found a K6-1 that is the steel model not aluminum on Craigslist locally.  Not really in the market for a scope but since it was listed at $45, thought I should look at it.  The info on the scope says "Weaver K6-1 USA".  Glass is clear w/o scratches, a rough spot on the focus knob looks like it was hitting something and a few small spots on the body.  I bought it for $20 but have not mounted it to try it out yet.  Heard some good things about this 6x so I took a chance.  A little research says that it should be made between 1973-1977 as 1978 they put Micro-Trac on the body as well.  If it works, was it a good deal?
 
Appreicate the feedback.

Use to use one on a .222 in years gone by. It worked fine then so I suppose that it would be fine now unless it is broken. Maybe not the brightest nor most powerful scope but quite a few groundhogs met their maker because of that rifle. Most were shots at 200-250 yds but wasn't known to passing on trys out to 500 though my hit % was much lower out there.
