I have come across one of these in good shape. The 20x scope comes complete with front and rear lens covers, standard issue tripod, offset, one height extension, and original water-tight case.
Anyone have an idea of what a reasonable price would be?

Just so you know, many more of them were used by recon, scout, FO's, and match shooters then by snipers.

Are you certain that it's 20X? I coulda sworn ours were 8 or 10. Very limited and using the scopes on the spotters M-21 was more useful as were most any cheesed out throw away binos we might be carrying.
I do remember them fondly for being made like tanks though.

All of them I ever saw were 20x Bausch and Lomb.
We had them in heavy weapons platoon, recon platoon, and I used a bunch of them as spotting scopes with 5th Army Army AMU shooting teams.
