Telescope M82 Reproduction
 
So I just bought a jacked up 1903A4 on GunBroker for my restoration project. The bolt is wrong, the stock is wrong, and apparently the seller indicated that the scope is a reproduction. However, it doesn't look anything like the Hi-Lux reproduction M82 scope. Can anyone chime in and/or provide links to who made reproduction M82 scopes besides Hi-Lux and which brand this one might be?

Pictures of the supposed repro scope. These are the best quality pictures I have, will take better pics when I receive the rifle.

Can you post a pictured of the bolt cutout. I have never seen the pat number on the rear bell at the threaded end. It should be at the edge covered by the rubber eye piece.

There is no bolt cutout, the stock is wrong. The scope is likely a reproduction. So that's probably why things aren't where you expect them. I'm trying to figure out the manufacturer of the scope.

The scope and rubber eyepiece are fakes. They are fine for the interim until and if you can find authentic ones as long as they were presented to you as reproductions (fakes).

As stated in the OP I am aware it is fake. I am trying to figure out the manufacturer of them so I can value them properly when I go to sell. What about the base and rings? I'm pretty sure the base is authentic, but am unfamiliar with horizontal split rings. Is there an easy way to tell?

Need a better photo of the marking on the base, and photo of the top of the base as well.

The area around the screw on the rear base is more rounded (when looking from the top) than that on my horizontal split A4 rings. That said, I don’t know for sure that mine aren’t reproductions either...

I will have to post up additional pictures once i receive the rifle. these are from the auction and are the best I have at the moment. Thanks for the replies.

The scope is Chinese, go for about $300.00 on Ebay

10-4. Any idea what manufacturer it is from the pics or where someone could purchase one online besides ebay?

I don't recall the name of the company. They pop up every now and then on Gunbroker. Gunpartscorp (Numrich) used to have them as well but they're not currently listing them.
