Default Danish M1D FKF scope

Good Day 860306,
A number of the Danish FKF (Forsvarets Krigsmaterial Forvaltning or Defense/War Material Administration) scopes came into the country around 15-20 years ago through companies like Northridge, Southern Ohio and other dealers. Many came in through Canada. The vast majority were M-84 scopes but a very small number of M-82 scope were likewise marked indicating service in the Danish military. Beneath the FKF and crown markings, there should be a number that indicates the serial number of the rifle it was "mated" to by the Danes.

You stated the Winchester M1D had a VAR (Vaabenarsenalet -Arms Arsenal) barrel. Please double check that as I've never read where the HMAK (Hærens Materiel Kommand -Army Materiel Command) or HTK (Hærens Tekniske Korps -Army Technical Corps) issued a directive for a M1D barrel to be produced. Please take lots of pictures if it is VAR marked.

On an aside, a few original Danish M1D stocks were seen with range stickers on the left side of the stock beneath the elevation knob. See if the rifle has remnants of this sticker.


Regards,
Michael
