    M84 scope real or repro

    Any opinion on this scope being real or repro? It does not have a data plate but based upon some of the characteristics I see it appears to be real or possibly an assembled scope from Sarco? The glass is clear with only one fleck inside. Comments welcome. I purchased it as repro but when I got it thought it could be real. I’m not home to compare it with others I have. Regards

    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. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    M84

    My guess would be Repro because of the lack of data plate. We recently did an article in the GCAicon Journal on the new repros and all the tells we mentioned were on the plate. If you are trying to pass it off as original, that would have to go.

    Thanks Bob, I purchased it as a repro for a good price but when it came it has some old Germanicon mounts, post war and it came in an old German scope or something wool pouch as shown. I’m sort of in the process of moving so my GCAicon journals are scattered about, do you recall what issue? This has non serifed 1’s, beveled or rounded knobs, the caps look old, and the sunscreen end is more rounded than the repro’s I’ve noticed on the web. A quick search on the CMPicon forum also says the letter, R L are normally not on bottom for repro’s. As pictured these are on the bottom. I know repro’s are getting better, so I’m headed over to a friends house to compare. Thank you for the reply, Curt
