    O3A4 sniper scope

    I just acquired a O3A4 sniper rifle from brother that he brought back from Vietnam in 1967-68 from a storage warehouse, according to the serial number it is from the first block of rifles and the 1,344 made, my question is what scope or scopes would be right for this rifle, thanks in advance for any help.

    Given that period you can either use Weaver 330C, Weaver M73B1, M81, M82 or M84 scope.

    Pictures of the rifle would be appreciated. Does it come with any capture papers as well?

    PS: while most even call it O3 it in fact is an 03 (zero - three) or full designation M1903(A4).
