well i couldnt find a place to buy the original scope is was looking for, but i found this http://www.wgcshop.com/pcart/shopper...e7a5891e5d0612 and i was wondering if anyone has used it and is it a good scope?I.E. how is the eye relief, how clear is the view, what is the recticle, and over all quality of the scope?
What rifle are you mounting it on exactly and are you going for a Marine or Army sniper look? The reason I ask is becausse each service used pretty different equipment at times depending on what year in the war you are trying to portray.
The one in the picture is the Winchester Model 70 which was used by the USMC in the early years of the war. It wasn't all that common except for that time and after April '66 I would dare say that most snipers were using the M700/M40's.
The most commons scopes for that time were the ART's and ART II's which do pop up with some frequency on eBay. There are decent enough looking replicas from WGC that won't break the bank either. I have an M14 and coming soon will be a SP M40, both for my Vietnam Marine scout-sniper kit and I use an ART look a like.
Yah Im trying for the Marine set-up.Too much free time and have read Marine Sniper too many times.Can you post a pick of a ART or ARTII and where to get one?I'm gonna get a VSR-10 Pro-Sniper and to help it make it look vietnam era, I am looking for a nice scope like that to help.
well im planninh on putting a VSR-10 Pro-Sniper.I dont nessecarly need a vintage scope. Tarwar Warrior suggested a ART replica, do you know what one looks like or do you know the replica of one at www.wgcshop.com? also I'm planning on making a ghillie, but I live in socal so the landscape I play at is wide tall grass lands and a few tiny patches of trees with greenery.I found a do it your self kit at https://secure.quixion.net/bushrag/s...79335d3592a4da but i dont know what colors I should choose. could you suggest the colors. here is a pic of what my battlefield looks like without all the tress and it has tall rolling hills
