    Redfield Viet Nam AR TEL 3x9 Sniper Scope w/ M-14 mount

    Anyone know of any serious collectors who may be interested in a Viet Nam Era U.S. issue sniper scope ready to mount on a M-14, it is a Redfield 3x9 AR TEL with the box like retical.
    I can't find alot of info on it outside the many forums talking about them, only around 2000 made and rare, value around 1500.00-2500.00??

    Probably your best source of info on this is going to be Peter Senich's books on sniping; he shows a number of pictures of scopes and mounts that are very close to this, and it appears to be an early scope on a mid-production mount. This should be calibrated to use the M118 Ball sniper load, arranged to give an accurate POI when a 6-foot target is zoomed to within the stadia markers. Hope this helps.

    I don't know what they sell for now.

    We played with a couple at 5th. Army AMU in 1968 or so.

    Most of those that went to Viet Nam suffered for moisture getting inside them & fogging.
    And / or the ranging reticule dissolving / delaminating from the heat.

    If you have one that still works it should be worth some money.
    I just have no idea how much.
