    Scout regiment telescope Mk2 scope value

    Im looking at a Scout Regimental Telescope Mk2 to add to my sniper kit. Ive been searching forums for a value for these. Ranges from $200-$900. seems like a pretty broad range to me. Any input from some owners of these telescopes??. Badger must have a couple of these eh??.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    Well, it's a good question....

    We have a few to round out various collector's pieces, but they were bought over a year ago and included their cases and extra lenses.

    I think ~Angel~ paid about $500-$600 each for them. Check with Advisory Panelicon Member Son. I think he knows these old scopes better than I do.

    Regards,
    Badger

    I bought a true Scout regiment marked 20 power scope and leather case in nice condition on Ebay about four years ago. Military stores number OS126, I believe. Paid $650. I believe these are pretty rare. A similar three section scope is sometimes seen, but it is not marked Scout Regiment OS 126 and the case is very different. Some sort of "Observer" marking. The optics on these telescopes are amazing for their age.

    I just picked up 6 at auction for around $300 each after commission (check out October's Purchases). These scopes usually run $4-500 and as said above have great optic's.

    I've bought and sold several over the last few years. I've found the auction sites to be a bit fickle in regards to price. Reasons for the variation and basic things to look out for; the correct markings are present, the lenses are not cracked and there isn't any signs of fungii inside. Dents to the tubes, particularly the flanges that screw them together seriously detract from the value too. Don't buy one without a case and preferably the strap as well- (these come up, but quite rarely). Either the leather or vulcanised rubber external finish if fine- (personal preference ?) But look for one with as much of the blackening on the tubes as possible, not one that's been polished!

    I was buying and selling to trade up to the best example I could find. They are out there in immaculate condition, but be patient or get in and buy one,
    just be prepared to sell it if a better one comes along.

    I've been tracking the auctions for a few years. Got lots of info on sale prices and condition to fall back on. I'd think US$600 should be about top dollar (our exchange rate from Oz ain't good at present) but some that sell for $350 are too expensive for what they are. If you have to look at an auction purchase, I'd be happy to check out the pics if you e-mail me a link to one you're considering. I won't bid against you. Happy with mine at present.
