    Weaver K2.5 - C3 Scope

    Older blued steel Weaver scope.

    Marks commensurate with age and use.

    Lenses display evidence of delamination meaning it is not as clear as it once would have been. Could be refurbished overseas as I understand.

    I have not had it on a rifle, so I cannot attest to it's functionality, but the crosshairs move with the dials and there are no obvious malfunctions.

    Nice period scope for something retro p'raps?

    Delivered to your doorstep for $60

    This is now free to someone who wants it for a heritage rifle or something. Its probably not altogether suitable for serious use, being that the lenses are a fraction milky. You pay post is all I ask. The person whose reply I like the most by this time friday eve gets it :-)

    be nice if it was a 4x.
    Id be on that like a morbidly obese infant on a confectionary. In saying that it would still go very well on the BSA model E 303 project-I don't have scopes for all my projects lol.
    It would be interesting to see how much a refurb was worth.

    I used a Weaver 3x for many years and it served me well. Like csmitty said and they were, a cracking scope in the thick stuff.
    Seeing that pic above bought back a few flashes from the past.
