Toying with the idea of selling these two scopes. Any opinions on what you think they are worth. I've seen prices from one end of the spectrum to the other.

- Redfield 3x9x40
- Lo-Pro Wide Field Accutrac w/BDC.
- Accu-Range 200-600 yds with Accu-Trac Tombstone BDC and has the Dial A installed. I do not have the "B" and "C" dials.





Instructions for the scopes here: http://www.abousainc.com/ATsystem.htm

Neither scope looks like they have ever been mounted. No boxes, or instruction manuals.

Scopes probably made in the late 60's. It's the same scope as the military M40 Sniper scope used during the VietNam era but civilian model (not od green)

Cool scopes. I had a friend that had the military version on an M1A.

They go anywhere from $300 to $400.

Wouldn't take less than $150 each. Probably more.

Close as I could find with a bid.

That is not the accutrack. The accutrack feature is totally awesome. I have no idea why no one has continued to make scopes with it. If you want to get rid of them fast, you should be able to get close to $200. If you are willing to wait for the right person who is wiling to pay, you can try and get more. I would try and sell them on an auction site if you want to move them fast. Start the bid around $200 and see what happens.

Thanks for the input.

Both scopes are the exact same model. Pretty sure they are the accutrac, from my research. Could be wrong, wouldn't be the first time. \:\)

Might put them on gun broker starting at 200. Or may just put them on a rifle ;\)

I need a new scope for my sons rifle. Question for you mike.. Does your son "fool" with the dials? I'm afraid if I put it on my sons rifle, he will be screwing with the dials and make a bad shot when one walks out.
