    It seems to be some overhaul program that hasn't been documented before. The Punch mark is most likely a proofing mark, stamped after it was proof fired. The A, we don't know, either an Armory stamp of some kind, or possibly even an individual inspector.

    Any thoughts?
    I've got a Hi Lux M82 replica on my replica M1C and I'd say it is a very nice scope. Optics are clear and it has been fine through a lot of shooting. I also have a real M82 scope waiting to go on a real M1C when I can afford one. The Hi Lux scope looks and functions very much like the real M82. Real M82 scopes are selling for $1400 plus these days. There is a guy on Gunbroker that is selling a couple of M82 scopes right now. He also has a B-prefix Lyman Alaskan for sale, which would also be appropriate for your rifle. I think he wants around $550 for the Lyman, and much more for the real M82s. Some guys also put M84 scopes on their M1Cs, but I think the M82s are more appropriate for a C and the M84 more appropriate for a D. The M84 scopes are less expensive, but still in the $700 plus range.

    If you get a Hi Lux, there is also a guy on Gunbroker that sells reproduction rubber eye-cups for $30 that really make it look authentic. These are made from the original molds, so you can't really tell them from the originals down to the drawing number. I put one on my Hi Lux scope.

    Here are a couple of photos of my Hi Lux on my replica M1C:



    Looks like you scored a great deal on that rifle! If you decide to sell it, keep me in mind.

    Ernest,

    Thanks very much for the thorough reply! Lots of good information there.

    As I stated, I do have a few bids in on some original scopes so Iíll wait to see how that goes. But Iím definitely leaning toward to the Hi-Lux for actual use.
    Just need to get a cheek pad after that and Iíll be ready to make some noise.

    Edit to add: the deals are out there! Thatís the most fun part of this hobby. Itís literally like uncovering buried treasure.
