    Vintage Gyttorp scopes?

    So I have this old Gyttorp 2-7x32 scope with the post and cross hairs reticle. It came of a BSA CF2 I purchased a long time ago. I sold the BSA but the Gyttorp has sat in a box ever since. Never even looked at it. Still has the rings on. I bought a Sauer 100 .223 today to replace my AR and as I have no more scopes in storage, I mounted the Gyttorp. It looks hilarious on a new rifle.

    Does anyone know anything about these? It does not appear to be poorly built. I will give it a try and if it works, it will look the part on my BSA Imperial if it ever turns up.

    From what I could find on the www Gytthorp is a Shotgun cartridge and shooting sports goods distributor from Sweden. So possible the scope is a generic make and marked with the distributors name as was popular with random makes of european shotguns back in the 60s through to the 80s. I have a couple of old side by side shotguns that are marked with the distributors mark/brand but could have been made by any number of manufacturers out of Spain at that time
    NRT and Tussock like this.

    I noted the cartridge manufacturer but did not know the link. Cheers. Possible my old BSA was a Scandinavian import.
