The Marines used an 8 power. If I'm reading that one right it is a 14 power. Incorrect/forged/bogus IMHO

The original 8-power ocular has been replaced with a 14-power ocular and a recoil spring has been added. But everything else looks o.k.

The USMC serial / tube engraving is authentic.

It has a later style eyepiece that is not original to the scope body and also has later style rear Unertl mount.

The ring with the 14 (power) stamped on it are easily changed from one tube to another. The ocular eyepiece may or may not be able to be swapped between scope bodies.

It won't sell anywhere close to what it sits at now.

If that is out of your price range, there is a nice M73B1 on Ebay right now.
