Default USMC 10x Unertl scopes - FOIA worth it?

I won one of the USMC 10x Unertl scopes the CMP has been auctioning off, and was curious if anyone has had any success submitting a FOIA request for theirs.

I assume since it has a serial #, it was tracked in an internal system, but I have no real clue.

Happy to be a guinea pig to see if I get results back if no one else has tried yet.

I was thinking of doing the same thing, curious how far down to the unit level I could track mine. Sure wish I could find my old serialized lists…

I put in the following request after I tracked down the NSN for the scope:

"To whom it may concern,
I am requesting records pertaining to a Unertl 10x rifle scope, serial #1056 with the NSN number #1240-01-123-4730. I am interested in any records relating to units it may have been issued to, and past maintenance. "

Huh, interesting. I never thought of submitting one for mine.

Well, I just fired one off to the department of defense, US Marines. I don’t know if that’s the proper place to submit one or not. We’ll see if anything turns up.

I would be interested to hear whether you receive any response or questions.

Got the response back today, no records found. So far I've had no luck with any USMC FOIAs unfortunately.

Did either of you run an FOIA request for these through the Army? That might show what USMC group shipped them to the Army. Then you could focus the USMC request from there.
